Theirs was the most commercially successful version, going to #7 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 and #3 on the U.S. Adult Contemporary chart. Other artists covering the song were Eddy Arnold, The Bachelors, Gary Lewis and the Playboys, and Esther Phillips.

The Vogues were a vocal-only group from Turtle Creek, Pennsylvania (a suburb of Pittsburgh). They were originally called the Val-Aires and formed in 1958. The Vogues were Bill Burkette (lead baritone), Don Miller (baritone), Hugh Geyer (first tenor) and Chuck Blasko (second tenor).

Here are the lyrics to “Turn Around Look at Me” by The Vogues:

“There is someone walking behind you,
Turn around, look at me
There is someone watching your footsteps,
Turn around, look at me

There is someone who really needs you
Here’s my heart in my hand
Turn around (turn around), look at me (look at me)
Understand, understand

That there’s someone who’ll stand beside you
Turn around, look at me
And there’s someone to love and guide you
Turn around, look at me

Oh, I’ve waited, but I’ll wait forever
For you to come to me
Look at someone (Look at someone)
Who really loves you (yeah loves you)
Turn around, look at me
Turn around, look at me”
