Dave Mills – Love Is A Beautiful Song


‘Love Is A Beautiful Song’
 sings Dave Mills and this is a BIG song. With its waltz timing, string arrangements and great vocal it assaults the senses and has you doing the ‘one-two-three, one-two-three’ around the living room with or without a partner. I used to think that it was Engelbert Humperdinck who did this song, but couldn’t even find a reference to a version by him anywhere on the net. Perhaps I was mixing it up with ‘The Last Waltz’ as there is a similar feel to the songs. It is however, a big compliment to Dave Mills to think that his song was actually done by Engelbert.

The song, which was written by Terry Dempsey, raced to the top of  SA Top 20 in 1970, and spent 4 weeks there from 3 April 1970 (and 17 weeks in total on the top 20). It made number 2 in neighbouring Rhodesia (now Zimbabwe) and managed a similar feat in Australia which is where, I believe Dave now resides.

Lyrics:
Love is a beautiful song
La-lah, la-la-lah, la-lah
Love is a beautiful song
La-lah, la-la-lah, la-lah

Love is a new way of living
A new way of starting each day
Millions of people all over the world
Know that love is a beautiful so-ong

It’s so good to see you now
Looking as lovely as ever
It’s so good to be alive
Knowing that we are together

It’s so good to see that love
Has painted the stars in your eyes
You’re looking the picture of loveliness
You’re looking a picture my love

Love is a beautiful song
La-lah, la-la-lah, la-lah
Love is a beautiful song
La-lah, la-la-lah, la-lah

Love is a new way of living
A new way of starting each day
Millions of people all over the world
Know that love is a beautiful so-ong

Love is a beautiful song
La-lah, la-la-lah, la-lah
Love is a beautiful song
La-lah, la-la-lah, la-lah

Love is a new way of living
A new way of starting each day
Millions of people all over the world
Know that love is a beautiful so-ong
Millions of people all over the world
Know that love is a beautiful so-ong…

    Brilliant track. For years I did weddings and this was a staple for the opening waltz. A much loved, instantly recognizable classic! David Smith(DJ)
