Love Makes the World Go 'Round

Passion makes the world go round.
Love just makes it a safer place.

- Ice T
(b. 16 Feb 1958)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,   

   Today's theme is brought to you by my Magic Shower, which has been annoying me with this song all this week. It's not even one of my favorites! SHEESH!!!

BONUS #1 -

BONUS #2 - Love Makes the World Go Round - Anna Maria Alberghetti

BONUS #3 - Love Makes the World Go Round - The Everly Brothers


"Love Makes the World Go 'Round" is a popular song written by Bob Merrill for the 1961 musical 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".[1]

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.

Al Hirt released a version on his 1965 album, The Best of Al Hirt.[2]

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.

Julie DaMario's 12 Circular Knitting Patterns for Practice - "If you're a beginning knitter, making the switch from straight needles to circulars can be a little daunting. However, it's important to remember the many benefits of using circular knitting needles. Knitting with circular needles allows you to hold more stitches. This is necessary when working on larger-scale projects such as knit blanket patterns or knit sweater patterns. Holding more stitches on your needles makes for a seamless product that's easier to manage!"


The Easiest Loaf of Bread You'll Ever Bake

Rustic White Bread - "Using this simple recipe will provide beginning bakers the basic skills needed for making bread. Shaping the bread into a free-form round is easier than forming it into a traditional loaf."

Love Makes the World Go 'Round

Words and Music by
Bob Merrill
(17 May 1921 – 17 Feb 1998) for Carnival!

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.
