Les Baxter And His Orchestra – Unchained Melody lyrics

Wake the Town and Tell the People
Johnny Mathis
Music by Jerry Livingston and Words by Sammy Gallop

This version did not chart but
In 1955 Les Baxter with his Orchestra and Chorus with vocals by the Notables hit # 5 with it.
And Mindy Carson's competing version attained # 13

Wake the town and tell the people
Sing it to the moon above
Wake the town and tell the people
Tell them that we're so in love (tell them that we're so in love)

Let's begin the celebration
Let's declare a holiday
Send the wedding invitation
To the neighbors right away
