|"Let It Be Me" is a popular song originally published in 1955 as "Je t'appartiens". The score was written and first recorded by Gilbert Bécaud. The lyrics were penned in French by Pierre Delanoë. The English language version used lyrics by Mann Curtis and was performed in 1957 by Jill Corey in the television series Climax!. Corey's version, with orchestration by Jimmy Carroll, was released as a single and was moderately successful. The most popular version of "Let It Be Me" was released in 1960 by The Everly Brothers. It reached 7th position on the Billboard Hot 100. The harmony arrangement of this version was often emulated in subsequent remakes.|

Thanks so much, Susan!
My buddy, Bobby Hatten (NNHS / Ferguson HS - '65 - of VA), read my book and wrote this review which he published on Amazon. He suggested that I send it to you and ask that you include it in a newsletter. He thinks a lot of people would enjoy the book. I appreciate his idea and review and think he is so sweet to suggest this.
What follows is what he wrote. Thanks.
