Answer Me

Answer Me by Frankie Laine was a UK number 1 hit on Friday, November 13, 1953 spending 8 week(s) at the top of the UK charts. "Answer Me" started life as a German song called Mutterlein. The original sheet music of the English version is held by the British Library. Frankie Laine (1913-2007) recorded his version, which runs to 2 minutes 42 seconds, first. The song begins "Answer me, Lord above." According to an article in the Independent newspaper of December 14, 2007, the BBC saw this as "a sentimental mockery of Christian prayer," and it became another in a very long list of innocuous songs to be denied airplay.
