Interesting facts and trivia about The End of the World. By Songfacts®.

This tune was originally an international hit for Country artist Skeeter Davis, peaking at #2 in the US in 1963. The record achieved the unusual feat of reaching the Top 10 on Billboard's Hot 100 Pop, Adult Contemporary, R&B and Country charts. Davis' four-chart top-ten accomplishment has never been duplicated by any other female vocalist in the history of Billboard.

Davis' original version was produced by Chet Atkins and the song was played at the legendary country producer's funeral in 2001.

Britain's Got Talent star Susan Boyle covered this on her 2009 debut album, I Dreamed a Dream. Many other artists have recorded the song, including the Carpenters, Herman's Hermits, Brenda Lee, Bobby Vinton, John Cougar Mellencamp, Johnny Mathis, Julie London and Eddy Arnold. Also British pop singer Sonia recorded a version in 1990, which peaked at #18 in the UK, the same position as Skeeter Davis' original.
