About the Song
"Answer Me, My Love" is a popular song, originally written (with German lyrics, under the title "Mutterlein") by Gerhard Winkler and Fred Rauch. The English lyrics were written by Carl Sigman in 1953. Sigman first wrote the song as a religious-themed song, "Answer Me," (in which the first line reads "Answer me, Lord above") as a question to God about why the singer has lost his lover, which became a joint #1 hit both for Frankie Laine and David Whitfield in the United Kingdom in November 1953. This was the only time in UK chart history that two versions of the same song tied at the top. The BBC banned the song because of the "religious" lyrics and Sigman then rewrote them to address the lost lover directly, under the title "Answer Me, My Love." Whitfield then re-recorded the number with the new lyrics so as to get BBC air-plays. Both his versions have appeared on CD. The best-selling.    Download this sheet!

Music sheets - what is all about? Back in the 19th century, songs in the United States were popularized by musicians through music sheets. It was only in the 1950s when musicians started to bring music sheets to bands so they could play, allowing more people to hear their compositions.
