The title song from the film starring Glenn Ford and Hope Lange. American bandleader and vocalist Billy Eckstine teamed with fellow Mercury recording artist Damita Jo; the record went to No.23 on Sydney's Top 40 (24th June 1963) and remained on the chart for 8 weeks. Damita Jo had a hit in 1960, I'll Save the Last Dance for You but it had been almost 12 years since Billy Eckstine was on our hit parades with I Apologise.
