Julie London. Seems to me that she was also in some TV series with Bobby Troop. I sang that song. I see that Phoenix has posted a link, but I didn't check it out, cause I was seeing if I recalled the lyrics.

Now you say you love me,
And just to prove that it's true,
Come on and cry me a river
Cry me a river,
I cried a river over you.

Now you say you're sorry,
You never were untrue,
Come on and cry me a river,
Cry me a river,
I cried a river over you.

(bridge)
You drove me, nearly drove me out of my head,
While you never shed a tear.
Remember, I remember all that you said,
Told me love was to plebian,
Told me you were through with me and...

Now you're say you're sorry,
Well just to prove that it's true,
Come on and cry me a river,
Cry me a river,
I cried a river over you.

Most of the music was in a minor key as I recall.

Cry Me a River is a song BY Arthur Hamilton, who wrote it for for Ella Fitzgerald, possibly in 1952, but she recorded it six years later. Julie London made it a big hit in 1955 and it was recorded by a variety of artists from Barbra Streisand to Joe Cocker and Michael Bublé.

Chappell & Co., Inc./Harmony Grace Publishing

It's likely that Arthur Hamilton was the first person to sing this song while accompanying himself on the piano.

It's unlikely that it sounded like my fave version:

According to Wikipedia, the song has a pretty long history:

Quote:
A jazzy blues ballad, "Cry Me a River" was originally written for Ella Fitzgerald to sing in the 1920s-set film, Pete Kelly's Blues (released 1955), but the song was dropped. Fitzgerald first released a recording of the song on Clap Hands, Here Comes Charlie! in 1961. The song was also offered to Peggy King, but Columbia Records A&R chief Mitch Miller objected to the word "plebeian" in the lyric[2] and its first release was by actress/singer Julie London on Liberty Records in 1955, backed by Barney Kessel on guitar and Ray Leatherwood on bass. A performance of the song by London in the 1956 film The Girl Can't Help It helped to make it a bestseller (reaching no. 9 on US and no. 22 on UK charts). It became a gold record, and in 2016, it was inducted by the Library of Congress in the National Recording Registry.[3]
