1957: Pat Boone's "Love Letters In The Sand" was # 1 this week



In the late 1950's, Pat Boone was a very popular entertainer:   45 million records, 38 top-40 hits and 12 Hollywood films.   Who else but Elvis had success like that on the radio and the movie screens?

On this week in 1957, Pat Boone had the # 1 song in the US.  In fact, it spent 5 weeks at the top of charts.


"On a day like today
We passed the time away
Writing love letters in the sand

How you laughed when I cried
Each time I saw the tide
Take our love letters from the sand

You made a vow that you would ever be true
But somehow that vow meant nothing to you

Now my broken heart aches
With every wave that breaks
Over love letters in the sand

Now my broken heart aches
With every wave that breaks
Over love letters in the sand...."
