Australian singer Frank Ifield recorded the song in a yodeling country-music style on May 27, 1962, and his version went to number one on the UK Singles Chart selling 1.1 million copies in the UK alone. The recording stayed at No.1 for seven weeks. It also reached number five on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 and number one on the U.S. Easy Listening chart.

The Beatles covered the song on stage early in their career and an amateur taping was made at the Star Club in Hamburg in December 1962. This version was ultimately published in 1977 on the bootleg recording “Live! at the Star-Club in Hamburg, Germany; 1962”. […]
