For today’s look back at love songs, we have the decade of the 60s. There are so many good songs from this time period, and I remember lots of them, as this was my teen years. We listened to the radio all the time, bought the long playing LPs and the single song 45s to play on our stereos and record players. We had our favorite bands, and read about them in our teen magazines, cutting out photos to tape on our bedroom walls.

Herman’s Hermits was one of my favorite bands of the time, so I chose this song for today.

Thanks, Bee, for giving us a good reason to listen to some old favorite songs, and share them here. 🙂

“There’s a Kind of Hush”, by Herman’s Hermits, was released in 1967, from their album, “There’s a Kind of Hush All Over the World”. It was written by Geoff Stephens and Les Reed,

There’s a kind of hush all over the world tonight.
All over the world you can hear the sounds of lovers in love.
You know what I mean.
Just the two of us and nobody else in sight.
There’s nobody else and I’m feeling good just holding you tight.

So listen very carefully.
Closer now and you will see what I mean.
It isn’t a dream.
The only sound that you will hear
Is when I whisper in your ear
I love you forever and ever.

There’s a kind of hush all over the world tonight.
All over the world you can hear the sounds of lovers in love.
La-la-la-la-la-la-la
La-la-la-la-la-la-la-la
La-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la
La-la-la-la-la

So listen very carefully.
Closer now and you will see what I mean.
It isn’t a dream.
The only sound that you will hear
Is when I whisper in your ear
I love you forever and ever

There’s a kind of hush all over the world tonight.
All over the world people just like us are fallin’ in love.
Yeah, they’re fallin’ in love.
Hush, they’re fallin’ in love.
Hush.

You know what irritates me? When I look for the written out lyrics, and they don’t completely follow the words being sung. This is one of those kind, but the closest I could find. Then again, this video was taken from a live performance somewhere, so maybe they changed it up for that.
