Cherry Pink (and Apple Blossom White) or Cerezo Rosa or Gummy Mambo, is the English version of Cerisier rouge et pommier blanc, a popular song with music by Louiguy written in 1950. French lyrics to the song by Jacques Larue and English lyrics by Mack David both exist, and recordings of both have been quite popular. However, Pérez Prados recording of the song as an instrumental with his orchestra featuring trumpeter Billy Regis, whose trumpet sound would slide down and up before the melody would resume, was the most popular version in 1955, reaching number one for 10 weeks on the Billboard chart starting on 30 April 1955.. Pérez had first covered this title for the movie Underwater! (1955), where Jane Russell can be seen dancing to the song. The most popular vocal version in the U.S. was by Alan Dale, reaching No. 14 on the chart in 1955.
In the United Kingdom, two versions of the song went to number one in 1955. The first was the version by Pérez Prado, which reached number one for two weeks. Less than a month later, a version by the British trumpeter Eddie Calvert reached number one for four weeks.
