Record label of Australian release:

Brenda charted in Australia with 22 songs between 1960 and 1966. Her biggest hits here were I’m Sorry in 1960 and Dum Dum in 1961. Coming on Strong was her final appearance on the Australian charts.

Coming on Strong was only a minor hit in Australia. While we may not remember how it sounded, we certainly know the name of the song, thanks to a reference in the Golden Earring song Radar Love.

American singer Brenda Lee performed rockabilly, pop and country music. She had 47 chart hits in America during the 1960s and is ranked fourth in that decade, surpassed only by Elvis Presley, the Beatles and Ray Charles. She is known for her 1960 hit I’m Sorry, and 1958’s Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree, which has become a Christmas standard.
