About Born to Be With You

"Born to Be with You" is a song written by Don Robertson. It was published in 1956. The original and biggest hit version (#5 on the pop charts) was by The Chordettes in 1956. In 1968, Sonny James recorded a version of the song which reached number one on the country charts. In the Chordettes version, because of the short verses, the Chordettes hum two choruses in-between the verses, while in the second humming chorus, a whistling of composer Don Robertson, is heard playing a counterpoint melody. Several disc jockeys wrongly fade the song out when the bass guitar plays a rumba rhythm that seems to fade out, however, following a brief pause, the Chordettes sing a harmonic variation Capella of the word "AMEN". Bing Crosby recorded the song in 1956 for use on his radio show and it was subsequently included in the box set The Bing Crosby CBS Radio Recordings (1954-56) issued by Mosaic Records (catalog MD7-245) in 2009. In 1973, Dave Edmunds had a UK Top 5 hit with the song, using his then popular "wall of sound" technique, borrowed from Phil Spector. Steel-string acoustic guitarist Leo Kottke included his rendition of the song on his 1974 album, Ice Water.
