Brenda Lee was one of the most successful singers of the 60's. The song that enabled her to break through in a big way from C&W to pop was Sweet Nothin's, a top ten hit in 1960 and the first of twelve top ten pop songs she recorded in a four-year span. It was followed by two songs that reached #1 later in 1960 [before she reached her 16th birthday]-- I'm Sorry and I Want To Be Wanted.
"Break It to Me Gently" is a classic pop song written by Diane Lambert and Joe Seneca. The tune was originally a hit for Brenda Lee, climbing into the Top Ten of both the Country and Pop charts. Twenty years later, Juice Newton released a decidedly more "torch" version of the song. Newton's version hit #1 on the Adult Contemporary chart, #2 on the Country chart, and #11 on the Pop chart. Newton received a Grammy award for her remake of the song
