About Confess

"Confess" is a popular song written by Bennie Benjamin and George David Weiss. The song figures in the early careers of two important female singers: In 1947, Doris Day was making a transition from a Big band singer, most recently with Les Brown, to a solo vocalist. Her first major record away from the band was a duet with Buddy Clark, with this song on one side and "Love Somebody" on the other. The record became a two-sided hit, the first two of a string of hits for Day that made her one of the top female singers in popular music. About the same time, Mercury Records was planning to record the song as a vehicle for Frankie Laine. They were persuaded instead to give the song to a young female singer, who had not, at the time, a single hit: Patti Page. Page's manager, Jack Rael, succeeded in getting Mercury to let her record the song, but because of a low budget, a second singer could not be hired, so guitarist George Barnes (musician), whose trio accompanied Page on the record, and who had been experimenting with multi-track recording with engineer Bill Putnam, suggested that Page sing the second part as well. The novelty of her doing two voices on one record probably contributed to the song becoming a top 20 hit for her. This became not only the first of many hits for Patti Page, but the first song on which a singer did more than one track. For Patti Page, multi-tracking became a trademark of her style, while others, such as Les Paul and Mary Ford, as well as Jane Turzy, took up this practice too. The Day/Clark recording was recorded on November 21, 1947, and issued by Columbia Records as catalog number 38174, and first reached the Billboard chart on June 26, 1948, lasting 11 weeks and peaking at #16 on the chart. The Page recording was recorded on December 3, 1947, and released by Mercury Records as catalog number 5129, with the flip side “Twelve O'Clock Flight” (also later as catalog number 5511), and first reached the Billboard chart on July 2, 1948, lasting 10 weeks and peaking at #12.

Confess
Confess, confess
Why don't you confess

Say yes, say yes
I wish you'd reveal to m
Reveal to me
The way that you feel
Why don't you tell me the way that you feel
Confess

Confess, confess
Confess, it isn't a crime
Oh no, no crime
To open your heart to me
Confide in me
And say that you're mine
Why don't ya tell me you're gonna be mine

How long can I keep waiting
For a tender word from you
The sweetest rose starts fading
When the sunshine won't come through
Confess

Confess, confess
Please don't make me guess
Don't make me guess
If you really care for me
If you could care
Then darling confess
Confess

Confess, confess
Why don't you confess
Say yes, say yes
I wish you'd reveal to me
Reveal to me
The way that you feel
You know the way that I feel
Confess

Confess, confess
It isn't a crime
Oh no, no crime
To open your heart to me
Confide in me
Then say that you're mine
Why don't you tell me you're gonna be mine

How long can I keep waiting
For a tender word from you
The sweetest rose starts fading
When the sunshine won't come through

Confess
I'm ready now to confess
Pleas don't make me guess
Uh, us won't make you guess
If you really care for me
I really do
Then darling confess
So now, let's both confess.
