FROM THE ARCHIVE 256 -1961-

Today the last song from the year 1961: I’m In The Mood For Love. From the album ‘Shirley’ with Geoff Love and his orchestra.

(From Wikipedia)
“I’m in the Mood for Love” is a popular song. The music was written by Jimmy McHugh, the lyrics by Dorothy Fields. The song was published in 1935. It was introduced by Frances Langford in the movie Every Night at Eight released that year. The song was featured in the 1936 Our Gang (Little Rascals) short, The Pinch Singer, sung by Carl “Alfalfa” Switzer, and in the 1936 film Palm Springs. It is often known to be Switzer’s signature song.James Moody’s saxophone solo on a 1952 recording of this song inspired the song “Moody’s Mood for Love”. Hip hop artist Prince Paul sampled the song as the basis for the track “Mood for Love” on his album A Prince Among Thieves (1999), with Don Newkirk singing its original lyrics.The song’s title inspired the English title of Wong Kar Wai’s movie In the Mood for Love.

I'm in the mood for love 1

I'm in the moood for love 2

I’m in the mood for love
Simply because you’re near me
Funny, but when you’re near me
I’m in the mood for love

Heaven is in your eyes
Bright as the stars we’re under
Oh, is it any wonder?
I’m in the mood for love

Why stop to think of whether
Each little dream might fade?
We put our hearts together
Now we are one, I’m not afraid

If there’s a cloud above
If it should rain, then let it
But, for tonight, forget it
I’m in the mood for love

I stop to think of whether
Each little dream might fade?
We put our hearts together
Now we are one, I’m not afraid

If there’s a cloud above
If it should rain, then let it
But, for tonight, forget it
I’m in the mood for love
