Song of the Day Feb 3
February 3, 2024
Ahhh February. This month I’m focusing on Love Songs from the 70s.
Today our song is: When You’re in Love With a Beautiful Woman
Wikipedia tells us this about the song:
"When You're in Love with a Beautiful Woman" is an internationally successful single by Dr. Hook. It was recorded at Muscle Shoals Sound Studio, Alabama.
Written by Even Stevens, who followed producer Ron Haffkine into the studio bathroom to pitch him the song, "When You're in Love with a Beautiful Woman" which first appeared on the band's 1978 album Pleasure and Pain. Riding the disco wave in 1979 it belatedly became an international hit, reaching number six on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart in the USA and doing even better in the UK where it spent three weeks at number one in the UK Singles Chart in November 1979. The song was subsequently added to the band's 1979 album Sometimes You Win.
