“The Five Satins family is devastated by this loss but appreciative of having shared Fred’s music with thousands of fans and friends,” the group stated.

The track didn’t chart extremely upon its first launch, however grew within the years after to personify the period of vocal teams because of fixed airplay. It has been recorded by such artists as Boyz II Men and Debbie Gibson, and has been featured in such movies as The Buddy Holly Story, Dirty Dancing and The Irishman.
