Church Bells May Ring

The Willows

About Church Bells May Ring

"Church Bells May Ring" is a song written by The Willows, with songwriting credits also given to Morty Craft; Craft, a veteran arranger and talent scout, owned Melba Records, the label the Willows recorded for, and as often happened in the 1950s, label executives would give themselves a songwriting credit. There is little evidence Craft wrote the song, and according to the band members, he only paid them $200, despite the fact that the song sold well. The Willows were formed in New York City in 1952. Their original name was the Five Willows, and their song was originally called "Church Bells Are Ringing." "Church Bells May Ring" reached #11 on the U. S. R&B chart and #62 on the U. S. pop chart in 1956. Neil Sedaka played chimes on the song.
