VII) A top-charting female vocalist of the 1950s and 1960s,(Personality, please)(12 December, 1938) recorded a version of the 1923 song "Who's Sorry Now?", written by Bert Kalmar and Harry Ruby. She has said that she recorded it at the persistence of her father, who was convinced it stood a chance of becoming a hit because it was a song adults already knew and that teenagers would dance to if it had a contemporary arrangement. The success of "Stupid Cupid" restored momentum to a flagging career, and she reached the U.S. top 40 an additional seven times during the remainder of the 1950s. She managed to churn out more hits by covering several older songs, such as "My Happiness" (# 2 on the Hot 100) and "Among My Souvenirs" (# 7), as well as performing her own original songs. In 1959, she gained two gold records for a double-sided hit: on the A-side, "Lipstick on Your Collar" (# 5); on the B-side, "Frankie" (# 9).
