Amor Amor Amor 1943
Auf Deutsch; I'm singing the Paul Kuhn lyrics.
written by Gabriel Ruiz, the original Spanish lyrics by Ricardo López Méndez, with English lyrics written by Sunny Skylar.
The two biggest-selling versions in the United States were recorded by Bing Crosby and Andy Russell.
The recording by Bing Crosby was recorded on February 17, 1944 for Decca Records as catalog number 18608. It first reached the Billboard magazine Best Seller chart on June 29, 1944, and lasted 7 weeks on the chart, peaking at #4. The flip side was "Long Ago (and Far Away)," which also charted, making this a two-sided hit.
The recording by Andy Russell was released by Capitol Records as catalog number 156. It first reached the Billboard magazine Best Seller chart on May 25, 1944, and lasted 8 weeks on the chart, peaking at #5.
Andy sang it in English and Spanish in the Film "Breakfast in Hollywood.
In 1961, American soul singer Ben E. King covered the song and it appears on his album Spanish Harlem. It was released as a single, and peaked at #18 on the Billboard Hot 100 and #10 on the R&B chart.
Rod McKuen recorded a disco version in 1977.
Julio Iglesias has recorded the original Spanish version.
Luis Miguel covered the song which was released as the lead single from his album Mis Romances (2001). The song peaked at #13 on the Billboard Hot Latin Songs chart. It served as the main theme for the Mexican telenovela El Manantial.
Paul Kuhn has a nice German Version.
Amor, amor, amor

Amor, amor, amor
Dies kleine Wort sagt Dir sofort: Das ist die Liebe
Amor, amor, amor
Ich wünsche mir genau wie Dir, daß es so bliebe

Vielleicht hat schon mancher dieses Wort Dir erklärt
Du hast ihn verstanden und sein Flehen erhört
Doch heut' soll es mehr als ein Geständnis nur sein
Für ewig gehör' ich Dir allein

Amor, amor, amor
Hör auf mein Lied, die Zeit entflieht, hab doch Erbarmen
Amor, amor, amor
Es lockt so süß, das Paradies in Deinen Armen.
