"A Blossom Fell" is a popular song.
It was written by Howard Barnes, Harold Cornelius, and Dominic John and published in 1954.
The best-known version was recorded by Nat King Cole. The recording was released by Capitol Records as catalog number 3095. The B-side was "If I May." The record first reached the Billboard magazine charts on April 27, 1955 and lasted 20 weeks on the chart, peaking at #2. (Note that in this era, Billboard combined data for both sides of two-sided hits, so the #2 status applies to the combination of "A Blossom Fell" and "If I May").
