Heard some of them, but not my cup of tea.

I don't know who posted this topic - sorry! Looks like the 'bug' on the site still exists and I'm taking a break for a little while.

It was definitely Shirley Bassie who sang "Kiss me,honey kiss me",and if my memory serves me right it was Slim Whitman who recorded "Mexicali Rose",but before him it was Bing Crosby in the film of the same name (1938) and Gene Autrey the following year.

The way you smiled at me
