Watch Recorded in 1957 (when Debbie Reynolds was 23 years old) for the film Tammy and the Bachelor, the song earned her a gold record and was the best-selling single by a female vocalist in 1957. The song spent 23 weeks on the Top 40 charts. It was number one for five weeks on the Billboard pop charts. The song was nominated for a Best Song Academy Award in 1957, but lost to All The Way from the film, The Joker Is Wild. In the movie (the first of the Tammy film series, and the only one Debbie Reynolds starred in), she co-starred with Leslie Nielsen. At the time Tammy and the Bachelor was filmed, Debbie Reynolds was still married to Eddie Fisher. Less than a year later, Eddie Fisher began his affair with Elizabeth Taylor. Debbie Reynolds and Eddie Fisher were divorced in 1959. In the film, as she sings the song, shes interrupted by her Aunt Renie (played by Mildred Natwick.) For this video, I deleted that part, and spliced in scenes between Debbie Reynolds and Leslie Nielsen, and overlayed the soundtrack with a clean audio. Tammy (Jay Livingston and Ray Evans) I hear the cottonwoods whisperin above Tammy! Tammy! Tammys in love! The ole hootie owl hootie-hoos to the dove, Tammy! Tammy! Tammys in love! Does my lover feel what I feel When he comes near? My heart beats so joyfully Youd think that he could hear! Wish I knew if he knew what Im dreamin of! Tammy! Tammy! Tammys in love! Whippoorwill, whippoorwill, you and I know Tammy, Tammy, cant let him go! The breeze from the bayou keeps murmuring low, Tammy, Tammy, you love him so! When the night is warm, soft and warm I long for his charms Id sing like a violin If I were in his arms Wish I knew if he knew what Im dreamin of! Tammy! Tammy! Tammys in love!
