Who Wrote That Tune?

It's not; it's actually, the old Bobby Vinton hit, "Melody of Love," note for note.
Years ago, I played a gig at on of the Catskills hotels, When I got back to the room, the TV could only pick up one channel showing a Polka contest and the band was playing the Vinton tune.

I think it may be time to play a round of "Who Really Wrote That Tune?"
