‘Cry Me A River’, 1955

‘Cry Me A River’ was a US No. 2 hit single for Julie London, thanks in part to her involvement in the movie, The Girl Can’t Help It. In the film, London appears during a fantasy scene in press agent Tom Miller’s apartment and sings the song to him. Despite an extensive movie career and recording 32 albums, London will always be remembered as the sultry singer of this hit.
