BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1982
“Cereza rosa”, or “Cherry Pink and Apple Blossom White” or “Gummy Mambo” is the English version of “Cerisier rose et pommier blanc”, a popular song with music by Louiguy written in 1950. French lyrics to the song by Jacques Larue and English lyrics by Mack David both exist and recordings of both have been quite popular. However, Perez Prado’s recording of the song as an instrumental with his orchestra featuring trumpeter Billy Regis, whose trumpet sound would slide down and up before the melody would resume, was the most popular version in 1955, reaching number one on the Billboard charts. The most popular vocal version in the U.S. was by Alan Dale, reaching #14 on the charts in 1955.
In 1982, the British pop group Modern Romance (featuring John Du Prez) had a UK Top 20 hit with the vocal version of the song. This single was also the last involvement of band member Geoff Deane who left the band to start a solo career.
