Known for songs such as “Only You (and You Alone),” “The Great Pretender” and “Smoke Gets in Your Eyes,” The Platters were inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 1990 and the Vocal Group Hall of Fame in 1998. “Only You (and You Alone)” and “The Great Pretender” were later named songs of the century and were entered into the Grammy Hall of Fame in 1999 and 2002 respectively.
