About Orange Colored Sky

"Orange Colored Sky" is a popular song, written by Milton DeLugg and Willie Stein and published in 1950. The best-known version of the song was recorded by Nat King Cole (with Stan Kenton"s orchestra), but a number of other singers have recorded it, including Cole"s daughter, Natalie. That recording by Nat King Cole was recorded on August 16, 1950 and released by Capitol Records as catalog number 1184. It first reached the Billboard Best Seller chart on September 22, 1950 and lasted 13 weeks on the chart, peaking at number 11. (Some sites list a 1945 date for this recording, but this is apparently in error.) The first known recording was on July 11, 1950 on KING records catalog number 15061, with Janet Brace singing and Milton Delugg conducting the orchestra. The recording by Jerry Lester was released by Coral Records as catalog number 60325. It first reached the Billboard Best Seller chart on November 24, 1950 and lasted one week in the chart, peaking at number 30. Jerry Lester was the host of the late-night NBC series Broadway Open House, on which co-writer DeLugg was musical director. Because of the exposure that the song received on that show, "Orange Colored Sky" has been said to be one of the first songs to become a hit through television exposure.more »
