had a string of hit songs in the 1950s but was perhaps best remembered for recording the theme song to the long-running television show Rawhide. Laine's robust baritone voice was well suited for western theme songs, and his most popular songs included “That's My Desire,” “Mule Train,” “Cry of the Wild Goose,” and “Jezebel.” He was more popular in England than in the U.S., and his biggest hits there were “I Believe,” “Hey Joe,” and “Answer Me.” Laine also recorded theme songs for several western movies, notably Blazing Saddles (1974).
