The Look of Love

Lyrics:Hal David
Music:Burt F Bacharach

The song was publishe 1967.

The song was originally recorded by Dusty Springfield
for the Casino Royale soundtrack, receiving an Oscar nomination
and reaching the US Top 40.
Phil Ramone, the soundtrack's engineer, recorded the song separately
from the rest of the film tracks.
Springfield re-recorded the song the same year in London,
featuring a throaty saxophone solo, and released it as the B-side
of "Give Me Time".
Claudine Longet recorded the song on her 1967 album of the same title.
Lainie Kazan also recorded "The Look of Love"
(arranged by Pat Williams) on her 1967 album Love is Lainie.
Nina Simone also recorded "The Look of Love" in 1967 on her album
Silk & Soul.
Sérgio Mendes' hit rendition on the Sérgio Mendes & Brasil '66
album Look Around reached #4 on the pop charts after their performance
in the Academy Awards telecast in March 1968.
The lead vocal on this single was handled by Janis Hansen,
not Lani Hall, a rarity in the early Brasil '66 canon.
Andy Williams released a version in 1967 on his album, Love, Andy.
Soul group The Delfonics also covered the song in 1968 on their
album La La Means I Love You.

The look of love is in your eyes
A look your smile can't disguise
The look of love is saying so much more than just words could ever say
And what my heart has heard, well it takes my breath away

I can hardly wait to hold you, feel my arms around you
How long I have waited
Waited just to love you, now that I have found you

You've got the
Look of love, it's on your face
A look that time can't erase
Be mine tonight, let this be just the start of so many nights like this
Let's take a lover's vow and then seal it with a kiss

I can hardly wait to hold you, feel my arms around you
How long I have waited
Waited just to love you, now that I have found you
Don't ever go
Don't ever go
I love you so
