"TWO HEARTS, TWO KISSES" (MAKE ONE LOVE) is a popular song, written by Otis Williams and Henry Stone in 1954. Recorded by Otis Williams and the Charms, it first reached the Billboard magazine R&B charts on March 23, 1955 and lasted 12 weeks on the chart, peaking at #8.
THE BIGGEST HIT on this song was on the pop charts with the man who took many of the r&b songs, cleaned them up, polished them off, and turned them into Top Pop Hits. That, of course, is MR. PAT BOONE:
