"You Don't Know Me" was a 1956 Top Ten country hit for Eddy Arnold. Jerry Vale's cover was a Top 20 hit that same year. Its success made it an ideal candidate for inclusion on Charles' album Modern Sounds in Country and Western Music. It was in the same vein as his previous gold single "I Can't Stop Loving You," with a full vocal chorus and thick strings. Co-written by Arnold and Cindy Walker and produced by Sid Feller, "You Don't Know Me" went to number two pop, number five R&B, and number one adult contemporary for three weeks in the summer of 1962.
