"Endlessly" is a 1959 single by Brook Benton. The follow-up to his breakthrough hit "It's Just a Matter of Time", it reached number 12 on the Billboard Hot 100. Its B-side, "So Close", also reached the chart, peaking at number 38. "Endlessly" also was Benton's first chart success in the UK, where it reached #28.
In 1970, country singer Sonny James, who had topped the country charts with a remake of "It's Just a Matter of Time" earlier in the year, released his version of "Endlessly" as a single. It was James' sixteenth number-one song on the U.S. country singles chart. The single spent three weeks at number one and a total of fourteen weeks on the chart.
He wrote songs for artists such as Nat King Cole, Clyde McPhatter (for whom he co-wrote the hit "A Lover's Question") and Roy Hamilton. He eventually released his first minor hit, "A Million Miles from Nowhere", before switching to the Mercury label, which would eventually bring him major success. He also appeared in the 1957 film, Mr Rock And Roll with Alan Freed.
