Amor Amor Amor 1943
written by Gabriel Ruiz, the original Spanish lyrics by Ricardo López Méndez, with English lyrics written by Sunny Skylar.
Amor Lyrics English

Amor, amor, amor
This word so sweet that I repeat
Means I adore you
Amor, amor, amor
Would you deny this heart that I
Have placed before you

I can't find another word with meaning so clear
My lips try to whisper sweeter things in your ear
But somehow or other, nothing sounds quite so dear
As this soft caressing word I know

Amor, amor, amor
When you're away there is no day
And nights are lonely
Amor, amor, amor
Make life divine, say you'll be mine
And love me only

Amor, amor, amor
This word so sweet ....

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 different than the one in this recorder.
