38.  What was the song? These Boots Are Made For Walking Unforgettable You Light Up My Life No Memories Hanging Round Debby Boone was just weeks shy of her 21st birthday when “You Light Up My Life” was released. This was her cover version of a song first recorded by Kasey Cisyk from the movie of the same name. The movie’s soundtrack squeaked to #80 on the Hot 100. The song was brought to Debby Boone by Joseph Brooks, the songwriter/producer and director of the film who had her sing over the same orchestrated track used in the movie. Its resulting session saw the song shoot to #1 where it stayed for ten weeks, a record for a single up to that time. By year’s end it surpassed all other records in sales figures, becoming the best selling single for the entire decade of the seventies. For her efforts Boone was rewarded with a Grammy for Best New Artist and American Music Award for Favorite Pop Single. 39.  Who is her father? Frank Sinatra Pat Boone Nat King Cole Johnny Cash
