"If I Give My Heart to You" is a popular song written by Jimmy Brewster, Jimmie Crane, and Al Jacobs. The number one best selling version was by Doris Day. This version topped the Hit Parade for over 17 weeks, and it became so popular that it is listed as one of the most recorded songs of all time. While there were many versions even back then, no one comes close to the delivery presented in this version of the tune. Even in the UK, releases by two popular female singers faded in comparison to this one by Doris at the height of her singing popularity in 1954.
There were numerous other recordings of the song in 1954 and several of them actually charted. One of these, which reached #13 on the charts, was by a one hit wonder named Denise Lor. It must have been a fluke; no one has heard of this version since or of Denise.
