Sid Prosen
Written by Sid Prosen, a musician and promoter whose most notable achievement was signing two 15 year olds - Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel - in 1957 and giving them the stage name of Tom and Jerry. He pocketed most of the royalties from their moderately successful record ‘Hey Schoolgirl in the Second Row’ before his record company Big Records folder two years later.

Teresa Brewer
American singer Teresa Brewer recorded "Till I Waltz Again with You" on August 19, 1952. Coral Records released it as a single which entered the Billboard Best Seller chart on December 6, 1952. It remained on the chart for 22 weeks, including seven weeks at number one

Elvis Presley performance
In April 1953, during his senior year in high school, Elvis Presley sang the song in his high school's "Annual Minstrel" show. Presley recalled that the performance did much for his reputation: "I wasn't popular in school ... I failed music—only thing I ever failed. And then they entered me in this talent show ... when I came onstage I heard people kind of rumbling and whispering and so forth, 'cause nobody knew I even sang. It was amazing how popular I became after that."
