The Platters were an incredibly successful American vocal group playing a large influential role in the early rock n roll era. Their unique sound was based on the Tin Pan Alley traditions but focused towards the teenage rock and roll music explosion of the mid-1950s. It brought in a new era. Lead tenor Tony Williams, Zola Taylor, David Lynch, Herb Reed, Paul Robi were successfully managed by Ralph Bass. They achieved 40 charting singles on the Billboard Hot 100 with four no. 1 hits. They still remain one of the most successful vocal groups of all time.

Smoke Gets In Your Eyes is a song about the fleeting and blinding nature of love. People may warn you while you are in it and laugh at you when you're out of it, but that doesn't change the fact that when one is in love's passionate grip, one is oblivious to the reality of its coming and going. Love, like smoke, obscures the senses and dissipates quickly.
