- BashoThe Platters embraced the opportunity, and throughout the second half of the '50s, they racked up a number of huge crossover hits, none better than their second Top Ten hit, "The Great Pretender." Written by the group's manager, Buck Ram, the song is a classic lament of unrequited love -- the narrator pretends that he's doing well, even though.
- FaerOh-oh, yes I'm the great pretender Pretending that I'm doing well My need is such I pretend too much I'm lonely but no one can tell Oh-oh, yes I'm the great pretender Adrift in a world of my own I've played the game but to my real shame You've left me to grieve all alone Too real is this feeling of make-believe.
- FaunrisFreddie Mercury revived "The Great Pretender" in when he released his version of a single. It didn't make an impact in America, but went to #4 in the UK. This was the first ever doo wop #1 in the USA, and it also made The Platters the first R&B group to have a #1 on the pop charts.
