Teach Me Tonight

"Teach Me Tonight" is a popular song that has become a pop standard. The music was written by Gene De Paul, the lyrics by Sammy Cahn. The song was published in 1953.

Cahn wrote a new verse for Frank Sinatra's 1984 recording on L.A. Is My Lady, referencing Sinatra's many love affairs.

The song was recorded several times in 1954 and 1955. The version by Janet Brace was apparently first, making the Billboard chart on 10/23/54 and eventually reaching No. 23. The biggest hit version of the song was recorded by The DeCastro Sisters, charting at number two in 1955.

In 2006, American Idol contestant Elliott Yamin performed the song as part of "songs of the 50s" night during the show's fifth season; his rendition was well received by the judges, with Simon Cowell stating that it was "fantastic".
