So here's another one where When the newer version came out and a newer version by the way came out in one thousand nine hundred eighty seven so quite a long time ago. I didn't even know there was an older version. That was twenty years older so the song is. I think we're alone now. Tiffany whose last name. I didn't even know is darwish. Of course. I really liked the song in the eighties. When i was much younger and only a few years later did i discover that it was actually recorded and released in the sixties. I was composed by ritchie cordell and performed by tommy james and sean bells. Which when you hear. Tommy james and the shaun dell's that's like a typical name for a band in the sixty s so The tiffany version reached number. One on the charts in various countries including the us and canada.
