"Blue Velvet" is a 1950 popular song, written by Bernie Wayne and Lee Morris. It has been recorded by several artists, most notably Tony Bennett and Bobby Vinton, and has inspired a film of the same name. The most popular recording of the song is that of Bobby Vinton, which hit number one on the Billboard Hot 100 on September 21, 1963, and held the top spot for three weeks and also spent eight weeks atop the U.S. Middle-Road charts. Vinton's recording failed to make the British charts when originally released, but a re-release in 1990 went to #2 in the United Kingdom.
