Tears on My Pillow by Johnny Nash was a UK number 1 hit on Saturday, July 12, 1975 spending 1 week(s) at the top of the UK charts. The song is a heartbreaker: His girl has run off with his best friend, leaving him cold and lonely. Now he wakes up with tears on his pillow, pain in his heart, and her on his mind. Ernie Smith, one of Jamaica's legendary singer-songwriters, penned the song back in 1967 under the title of "I Can't Take It." Johnny Nash took the song eight years later and re-titled it "Tears On My Pillow." The change of title led to Smith initially missing out on royalties due to confusion with the Little Anthony & the Imperials 1958 song of the same name.
