Never Ending Song of Love

"Never Ending Song of Love" is a song written by Delaney Bramlett, and, according to some sources, by his wife Bonnie Bramlett.[1] It was originally recorded with his band, Delaney & Bonnie & Friends, in 1971 on the album Motel Shot. Released as a single by Atco Records the same year, "Never Ending Song of Love" became Delaney & Bonnie's greatest hit on the pop charts, reaching a peak of #13 on the Billboard Hot 100[2] and number eight Easy Listening.[3] It reached #16 in Australia.

"Never Ending Song of Love" has been prominently covered several times. A cover version by The New Seekers was a major hit in the British Isles in 1971. It spent a few weeks at no. 2 in the UK charts, reached no. 1 in the Irish charts, and was the title track on Never Ending Song of Love (album).

On the country music charts, at least three versions have become hits: Dickey Lee recorded a version at the same time as Delaney & Bonnie's original, which reached #8 on Billboard's country charts. Eleven years later, the Osmond Brothers had a minor hit with the song, which reached #43 on the country charts in 1982. Crystal Gayle's last U.S. chart hit was a cover of the song, which reached #72 on the country chart in 1990. As of 2008, it had been covered by over 100 artists.[4]
