This was one of the very few Cole's singles that failed to chart in the 50's. As a matter of fact, also his next single "The Little Boy That Santa Claus Forgot" / "Mrs. Santa Claus" didn't make it either. The one after that ("Answer Me My Love") went to US #6.

The title song is from the musical "New Moon".
