Radio star and big band singer Mindy Carson teamed up with the Ray Conniff Orchestra and Chorus to issue "Memories Are Made of This" (Terry Gilkyson - Richard Dehr - Frank Miller) and charted on Billboard at number fifty-three with the original version in 1955.

Dean Martin (Dino Paul Crocetti) reached number one for six weeks in 1956 with his cover where he was backed by the Easy Riders. This group was the trio who composed the song.
