Teresa Brewer rendition

American singer Teresa Brewer recorded "Till I Waltz Again with You" on August 19, 1952. Rather than a waltz as the title suggests, it is a slow AABA shuffle.[ citation needed ] Coral Records released it as a single, [1] which first entered the Billboard Best Seller chart on December 6, 1952. It remained on the chart for 22 weeks, including seven weeks at number one. [2] The song also reached number one on the Cash Box chart for six weeks in 1953.[ citation needed ]

Other recordings

Elvis Presley performance

In April 1953, during his senior year in high school, Elvis Presley sang the song in his high school's "Annual Minstrel" show. Presley recalled that the performance did much for his reputation: "I wasn't popular in school ... I failed music—only thing I ever failed. And then they entered me in this talent show ... when I came onstage I heard people kind of rumbling and whispering and so forth, 'cause nobody knew I even sang. It was amazing how popular I became after that." [5]
