About Call Me

"Call Me" is a song composed by Tony Hatch for Petula Clark which became an easy listening standard via a hit version by Chris Montez. "Call Me" first appeared as the title cut on a Petula Clark EP released in 1965 by Pye in the UK. "Call Me" and the three other tracks on the EP: "Heart", "Everything in the Garden" and "Strangers and Lovers" were also released on Clark's album I Know a Place (a.k.a. The New Petula Clark Album). Also in 1965 Chris Montez, who had scored the hit "Let's Dance" in 1962 and subsequently dropped out of the music business, was invited to resume recording by A&M Records' founder Herb Alpert. Alpert was unhappy when Montez began recording for A&M in his previous Chicano rock style and personally suggested Montez shift to easy listening choosing "Call Me" as the song to be Montez's debut single on A&M. Released in November 1965, "Call Me" entered the Easy Listening Top 40 in Billboard that December entering the Billboard Hot 100 in January 1966; that March "Call Me" peaked on the Easy Listening chart at #2 and on the Hot 100 at #22. Montez's version of "Call Me" was released as a single in the UK on the Pye label in January 1966 but failed to chart. "Call Me" was also a non-charting UK single release in 1966 for Lulu, as well as being recorded by Frank Sinatra on his 1966 Strangers in the Night album, and Nancy Sinatra for her album How Does That Grab You? (1966). 


 The easy, fast & fun way to learn how to sing:

If you're feelin' sad and lonely
There's a service I can render
Tell the one who loves you only
I can be so warm and tender

Call me; don't be afraid; you can call me
Maybe it's late, but just call me
Tell me, and I'll be around

When it seems your friends desert you
There's somebody thinking of you
I'm the one who never hurt you
Maybe that's because I love you


Now don't forget me 'cause if you let me
I will always stay by you
You've got to trust me, that's how it must be
There's so much that I can do


If you call, I'll be right with you
You and I should be together
Take this love I long to give you
I'll be at your side forever


Oh, oh, oh-oh

Oh, oh, oh-oh
