The musical, ME AND JULIET, may have faded into Broadway history but it did produce a number one song for Perry Como.
By 1953 Como was one of the biggest music stars in the world. He hit the top of the charts again with the Rodgers and Hammerstein composition, “No Other Love.”
It was a somewhat odd number one as it only topped one of the three BILLBOARD MAGAZINE Singles Charts. It did not top the Best Sellers In Stores Chart of The Most Played In Jukeboxes Chart. Radio Disc Jockeys, however, gave it alot of radio play as it topped the Most Played By Disc Jockeys Chart for four weeks beginning August 15, 1953.
It was a typical Como ballad that he was so good at producing. It helped solidify his position of the king of the pre-rock ‘n’ roll era in the United States.
