Subject: RE: fifties popsongs that started as folk
Before Elvis sang It's Now Or Never in 1960 Tony martin had a hit with There's No Tomorrow in January 1950. This was to the tune of the Italian 'O Sole Mio'. You did not mention 'When You're In Love', a song set to the tune 'The swallow' and was also called 'She Wears My Ring' :)
