The Platters perform on Ed Sullivan singing ‘Smoke Gets in Your Eyes’

The Platters’ are one of the most successful vocal groups of all time. Their 1959 performance on ‘The Ed Sullivan Show’ was a perfect rendition of their hit ‘Smoke Get in Your Eyes.’ The song starts off quiet and contemplative, with the lead singer Tony Williams standing in front of the other seated members. The four background voices never leave the seats behind him, but they add beautiful harmonies underneath the lead melody. The Platters’ songs are some of the most beloved recordings of the 50s and 60s. This clip will transport you back to those glory years.
