Today during the Satellite Survey countdown for this week in 1960, the '60s Channel played You Belong To Me by Joni James & 100 Strings. The song stalled at #101 on Billboard's Bubbling Under chart. Joni's original version of You Belong To Me was a hit in 1952. Jo Stafford, Patti Page, Dean Martin and Sue Thompson also recorded the song.

Joni did a series of concerts at the London Palladium in January 1959. (The January 18 show was televised.) While in London, she recorded several songs at EMI's Abbey Road studios. Twelve were released on the album 100 Strings & Joni. Two others, You Belong To Me and I Need You Now were released as a single.

Three more 100 Strings & Joni albums followed: I'm In The Mood For Love: Songs By Jimmy McHugh in 1960, On Broadway in 1961 and In Hollywood in 1962. Joni, born Giovanna Carmella Babbo, is 88 now. She continued to perform until 2006. Here is her original 1952 recording of You Belong To Me:
