03/07/16 - NNHS Newsletter - Who's Sorry Now?
does one know if she has forgiven? You tend to feel sorrow
Dear Friends and Schoolmates,
|"Who's Sorry Now?" is a
song with music written by
Snyder and lyrics by
Bert Kalmar and
Harry Ruby. It was published in
Billy Banks and His Rhythmakers, featuring
Eddie Condon on guitar. The
Hill Orchestra recorded it in 1945 (Mercury
Records catalog number 2041). Another one of those was an August 20,
1951 recording by
Jerry Gray and his orchestra (Decca
catalog number 27868).
Johnnie Ray recorded his version in 1956 for the
Columbia Records label. It reached number 17 in the
UK Singles Chart in February 1956.
The song was recorded in 1958 by Connie Francis, and since then the song has become closely identified with her due to the immense popularity of her version which was her breakout hit. Francis' father had pestered her to record "Who's Sorry Now" being adamant that the song would be a rock and roll smash hit. Francis did not share this enthusiasm but when an October 1957 recording session - scheduled to be Francis' last as she had scored no hits - wrapped early the singer used the leftover studio time to record "Who's Sorry Now" as a goodwill gesture to her father. Breaking in January 1958 - mainly on account of Dick Clark's championing of "Who's Sorry Now" on American Bandstand - the track rose to number 4 on the Billboard Hot 100 that spring, with eventual US sales totaling one million units. In the UK, "Who's Sorry Now" was number 1 for six weeks in May and June 1958...
