You've Lost That Lovin' Feelin'

download

(Weil / Mann)

Informação:

Pouco depois do produtor Phil Spector ter comprado o contrato dos Righteous Brothers à Moonglow Records, mandou vir de avião a dupla de compositores de marido e mulher, Barry Mann e Cynthia Weil, até à Califórnia, para compor uma canção de sucesso para os seus novos cantores. Mann e Weil escreveram uma melodia baseada no seu disco favorito da altura, dos Four Tops, Baby I Need Your Loving. Spector ajudou-os a escrever o refrão. You've Lost That Lovin' Feelin' (Philles 124) foi lançada no final de 1964. Em fevereiro de 1965, chegou ao primeiro lugar (e esteve lá durante duas semanas) na tabela Hot 100 da Billboard e ao 3º lugar na tabela de rhythm & blues. Alcançaram-se rapidamente vendas superiores a um milhão de exemplares. Em 1969 Dionne Warwick fez uma versão de You've Lost That Lovin' Feelin' (Scepter 12262) que se saiu muito bem, chegando ao 16º lugar na tabela Hot 100. Dois anos depois, Roberta Flack e Donny Hathaway tiveram um sucesso moderado com a sua rendição (Atlantic 2837).

 

Elvis cantou You've Lost That Lovin' Feelin' ao vivo nos anos 70. No documentário de 1970, Elvis - That's The Way It Is, Elvis foi visto a ensaiar a canção no International Hotel de Las Vegas e depois a cantá-la ao vivo em 14 de agosto de 1970.
 

Letra:
 

You never close your eyes anymore when I kiss your lips
There's no tenderness like before in you fingertips
You're trying hard not to show it, but baby, baby I know it
You've lost that lovin' feelin', oh that lovin' feelin'
You've lost that lovin' feelin', now it's gone, gone, gone, oh oh oh

There's no tenderness in your eyes when I reach out for you
Girl, you're starting to criticize every little thing I do
It makes me just feel like crying 'cause baby, something beautiful's dying
You've lost that lovin' feelin', oh that lovin' feelin'
You've lost that lovin' feelin', now it's gone, gone, gone, oh oh oh

Baby, baby, I’d get down on my knees for you (if the suit wasn’t too tight)
If you would only love me like you used to do
We had a love, love, love you don’t find every day
Oh don't, don't, don't, don't take it away
Listen to me, I’m talkin' to you

Bring back that lovin' feelin, oh, that lovin' feelin'
Bring back that lovin' feelin, now it's gone, gone, gone
And I can't go on, oh oh oh
Oh oh oh
O
h oh oh
