Born on November 9, 1943 in Queens, New York, Brian
Hyland's first hit came at the young age of 16 when "Itsy Bitsy Teeny
Weeny Yellow Polka Dot Bikini" was a runaway hit in the summer of
1960. On the ABC label, he had some minor hits with "Let
Me Belong To You", "Ginny Come Lately", and a song
that would later be covered by Dave Edmunds titled "Warmed
Over Kisses (Left Over Love)". He had another top 5 hit
in 1962 with "Sealed With a Kiss".
In the midst of the British Invasion, Brian's song "The
Joker Went Wild" performed most respectably.
In 1970, Brian collaborated with Del Shannon and released a cover of
Curtis Mayfield's "Gypsy Woman", which
went to number 3. A few years later when "Sealed
With a Kiss" was released again in Great Britian, it went
straight to the top ten. "Brian Hyland, Greatest
Hits" on MCA, (USA/Canada), includes all of his hit songs. He
also has many other foreign and domestic compilations.
