|"Love Makes the World Go 'Round" is a
song written by
Bob Merrill for the
Carnival!, which debuted on
Broadway in 1961.
Carnival!'s equivalent of "Hi-Lili, Hi-Lo", the signature song from the musical's parent film Lili, "Love Makes the World Go 'Round" is played on a concertina at the play's opening and is later sung by the characters Lili and Paul Berthalet, with the latter being concealed while his puppets apparently sing.
In scoring Carnival!, Bob Merrill had hoped to utilize French folk music as his touchstone, eschewing the conventional Tin Pan Alley style of song predominant in Broadway shows. During the development phase of Carnival!, Gower Champion and Michael Stewart – respectively set to direct the musical and write its book – would visit Merrill's apartment every morning and leave each afternoon disappointed by the lack of any evident hit song in the proposed score Merrill had played for them. When seeing out Champion and Stewart one afternoon, Merrill became irate at his visitors' attitude, telling them: "While you're waiting for this f**king elevator I can write the song I know you want" and improvising a tune reminiscent of Rodgers and Hammerstein's "Carousel Waltz". Whether or not Merrill was making a serious song pitch, Champion and Stewart's response to Merrill's impromptu composition was so positive as to demand its development into a full show tune for Carnival!, the result being "Love Makes the World Go 'Round".
Jane Morgan released a single of "Love Makes the World Go 'Round" which served as the title cut of her August 1961 album release on the Kapp label. The Everly Brothers also recorded the song for their album Instant Party, its title appearing there as "Carnival". "Love Makes the World Go 'Round" has also been recorded by Ann-Margret and Wayne Newton.

THIS DAY IN 1965:
From My Friend, Susan, of NC - 05/07/15:
|“At times there appears to be no light at the tunnel’s end, no dawn to break the night’s darkness. We feel surrounded by the pain of broken hearts, the disappointment of shattered dreams, and the despair of vanished hopes. We join in uttering the biblical plea, “Is there no balm in Gilead?” (Jeremiah 8:22). We are inclined to view our own personal misfortunes through the distorted prism of pessimism... We feel abandoned, heartbroken, alone. If you find yourself in such a situation, I plead with you to turn to our Heavenly Father in faith. He will lift you and guide you. He will not always take your afflictions from you, but He will comfort and lead you with love through whatever storm you face.” (b. 21 Aug 1927)|
Thanks so much, Susan!
From My #2 Son, Brent Harty (Hillsboro HS, IL - '90) of LA - 05/07/15:

Love Makes the World Go 'RoundWords and Music by Bob Merrill (17 May 1921 – 17 Feb 1998) for Carnival!, 1961
Love makes the world go 'round.
Love makes the world go 'round.
Somebody soon will love you,
If no one loves you now.
High in some silent sky
Love sings a silver song
Making the earth whirl softly
Love makes the world go 'round.
