EVERY UK NUMBER ONE SONG: ‘Do You Love Me’ – Brian Poole and The Tremeloes

What was the number one song in the UK on 10th October 1963?

By Hayley Beasley Dye

English band, Brian Poole and the Tremeloes were number one for 3 weeks with Do You Love Me.

Now, personally I do prefer the version by The Contours made popular in the 90s by Dirty Dancing. However, I still love The Tremeloes’ version. It’s a British invasion version of the Motown classic.

Lyrics

You broke my heart ’cause I couldn’t dance,
You didn’t even want me around.
And now I’m back to let you know I can really shake ’em down.
Do you love me?
(I can really move, )
Do you love me?
(I’m in the groove.)
Now do you love me?
(Do you love me now that I can dance?)
Watch me, now.
(Work, work)
Ah, work it out baby.
(work, work)
Well, you’re drivin’ me crazy.
(work, work)
With just a little bit of soul, now
(work!)
Now I can mash potatoes, I can do the twist,
Tell me, baby, do you like it like this?
Tell me,
(Tell me, )
Tell me.
Do you love me?
(I can really move, )
Do you love me?
(I’m in the groove.)
Now do you love me?
(Do you love me now that I can dance?)
Watch me, now.
(Work, work)
Ah, work it out baby.
(work, work)
Well, you’re drivin’ me crazy.
(work, work)
With just a little bit of soul, now
(work!)
Now I can mash potatoes, I can do the twist,
Tell me, baby, do you like it like this?
Tell me,
(Tell me)
