Nope! One year short!  Neutral

And there is nothing for that year in Canada.

In the USA:
Prisoner of Love - Perry Como

In the UK (where I was born):
Archie Lewis & Turner Layton - In The Land Of Beginning Again. "These early hits were based on sheet music sales. The most notable acts who recorded the song are listed here."  Rolling Eyes
