Tammy

This is my instrumental cover of “Tammy“, which was written by composer Jay Livingston with lyrics by Ray Evans. It was published in 1957 and made its debut in the film Tammy and the Bachelor. It was nominated for the 1957 Oscar for Best Original Song. “Tammy” is heard in the film in two versions. The one that became a number one hit single for Debbie Reynolds in 1957 is heard midway through the film. The version that used for the film’s main titles was a hit for the Ames Brothers.

In 1961, Duane Eddy used the song as the “B-side” for his single “Drivin’ Home”. The Ventures also recorded a version which can be found on the collection, “In the Vaults Vol. 2”.
