Brian Hyland (born November 12, 1943 in Woodhaven, Queens, New York.)

Hyland studied guitar and clarinet as a child, and sang in his church choir. At the age of 14 he co-founded the harmony group the Delfis, which recorded a demo but failed to secure a recording contract.

Hyland's first and biggest hit was "Itsy Bitsy Teenie Weenie Yellow Polka Dot Bikini", which he recorded at the age of 16. "Sealed With A Kiss" was his second-biggest hit.

Chart position: #3 (US), #3 (UK), #7 (UK 1975 reissue).

It was kept from the #1 spot in the US by "Roses Are Red (My Love)" (Bobby Vinton) at #1 and "The Wah Watusi" (Orlons) at #2.

In 1975 "Sealed With a Kiss" was reissued as a single in the UK and charted for a second time, reaching #7.

Written by:
Gary Geld (born October 18, 1935 in Paterson, New Jersey) and Peter Udell (born 1929 in Great Neck, New York).
