(“Tennessee Waltz”) “Yes, I lost my…”

Patti Page made “Tennessee Waltz” one of the best-selling recordings ever.  The pop star was the top-selling female singer of the 1950′s with more than 100 million record sales, and she is credited with creating a distinctive sound for the music industry in the late ’40′s by overdubbing her own voice when she didn’t have money to hire backup singers for the single, “Confess.”

(“Confess”) “Confess.  Confess, confess.”

Her career included 15 Gold records and three Gold albums of more than one million sales.  Page was also the first singer to have television programs on all three major networks.  She died on New Years Day at the age of 85.
