Bobby Vinton, known for his angelic vocals and his best love songs, his most popular song, "Blue Velvet", peaked at No. 1 on the now renamed Billboard Pop Singles Chart. It also served as inspiration for the film of the same name.
Bobby Vinton's song "Roses Are Red (My Love)", Bobby had to do his own promotion for the song; he bought one thousand copies and hired a young woman to deliver a copy of the record and a dozen red roses to every local DJ. It spent four weeks at number one on the Billboard Hot 100.
Arguably, his most famous song is "Blue Velvet," originally a minor hit for Tony Bennett, that also went to number one. 23 years later, David Lynch named his movie Blue Velvet after the song. In 1990, "Blue Velvet" reached #2 in the UK Singles Chart.
In 1964, Vinton had two #1 hits, "There! I've Said It Again" and "Mr. Lonely". Vinton's version of "There! I've Said It Again" is noteworthy for being the final U.S. Billboard number one single of the pre-Beatles era, deposed from the Hot 100's summit by "I Want to Hold Your Hand". ~Source Wikipedia
