(from wiki)
The song was a #7 US hit and Gold record for Jimmie Rodgers[3] in 1957 and also a hit for Frankie Vaughan in the United Kingdom in 1958. The Frankie Vaughan single reached no. 8 on the UK pop singles chart. Peter, Paul and Mary included the song on The Peter, Paul and Mary Album in 1966. It was also covered by Bongwater on their 1991 album The Power of Pussy. In their Peel session version of the song, Bongwater's lead singer, Ann Magnuson, dedicated the song to friends who had died of AIDS.

Many singers, including Marlene Dietrich, Andy Williams and Alex Harvey, have also covered the song, as well as Nana Mouskouri both in French and German.

In 2005, the song was reintroduced to a new generation of listeners by way of being remixed by Canadian electronic artist Frivolous.

A version of the song by the Robert De Cormier Singers from their 1967 album Walking in the Sunshine was sampled by J Dilla on Takin' What's Mine.

Anita Bryant, Eddy Arnold, Kate Smith, Waylon Jennings, Jackson Browne and Bonnie Raitt, The New Christy Minstrels, Ray Conniff, Alan Arkin, and The Jefferson Starship have also recorded the song.

The Spanish band Más Birras covered the song, under the title "Besos tan dulces como la miel".
