"Young Love" was written and recorded for the first time by
Ric Carter. Some time later a new version by Tab Hunter kept the
summit of the Global Chart for nine weeks, from February to
April 1957. Simultaneously another recording by Sonny James
peaked at no.4 globally. In 1973 the song was revived by
American teen idol Donny Osmond. His version featured Donny's
spoken recitation on the first half of the second verse.
Released on July 7, the song reached number one in United
Kingdom and Ireland, moreover the Top 10 in Canada, Australia,
and the Netherlands.
