Such was the case here. "Cry" was a huge hit for Johnnie Ray. The song was produced by Mitch Miller of "Sing along with Mitch" fame. The backup vocals are the equally notable Four Lads. The follow up to this monstrous hit was "The Little White Cloud That Could" and so you can see they tried to recapture the magic of "Cry" The song is very similar.
In doing some research on Johnnie Ray I discovered that he was practically deaf. I find that amazing because the vocals on "Cry" are electric. When he starts into the second verse her lets out such power and emotion that the hairs on the back of your neck will stand up. His voice pierces you and it is like static electricity shooting through you. Give it a try.
