EVERY UK NUMBER ONE SONG: ‘Long Live Love’ – Sandie Shaw

What was the number one song in the UK on 27th May 1965?

Sandie finds herself at number one again with Long Live Love, which was number one for 3 weeks.

Long Live Love is a simple, gentle tune and incredibly optimistic. I think with just a couple of listens it would be the kind of tune that could turn into an ear worm. It’s a nice tune and catchy, but not Sandie’s best.

Lyrics

Venus must have heard my plea
She has sent someone along for me
I have waited a long long time
For somebody to call mine
And at last he’s come along
Baby oh nothing can go wrong
We meet every night at eight
And I don’t get home till late
I say to myself each day
Baby oh long long live love
Mmm
True love must be the greatest thing
I know now why singers sing
Of the moon and stars above
How I love to be in love
We meet every night at eight
And I don’t get home till late
I say to myself each day
Baby oh long long live love
Now of one thing I’m more than sure
Since love come I don’t want more
Than to kiss him every night
Makes everything alright
We meet every night at eight
And I don’t get home till late
I say to myself each day
Baby oh long long live love
Mmm
We meet every night at eight
And I don’t get home till late
I say to myself each day
Baby oh long long live love
Mmm
Long long live love
