About this topic


"Tears on My Pillow" is a doo-wop song, written by Sylvester Bradford and Al Lewis in 1958 (see 1958 in music). The composition was first recorded by Little Anthony & The Imperials on End Records, and was that group's debut recording under that name. Their original recording of the song became a Billboard Top 10 Pop smash, peaking at #4, and was The Imperials' first million-seller. It was also a two-sided hit, with its flip side, "Two People in the World", also becoming a major hit. Although it remains one of the Imperials' signature songs, "Tears on My Pillow" has been extensively covered, including a number-one version by Kylie Minogue in 1990 (see 1990 in music).
