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.
