1968 - This Guy's in Love With You

Here's a sweet song to lift your spirits, from Burt Bacharach and Hal David.

"This Guy's in Love With You" was a number one hit for Herb Alpert, who was bests known as a trumpeter who led the Tijuana Brass. I was surprised to learn (as part of my scanty research on this song) that Mr. Alpert - known at the beginning of his career as Dore Alpert - started out as a vocalist.

The song is a simple declaration of love, and it has stood the test of time. Whether it will continue to stand following this rendition for SixtySongs remains to be seen.


That's it for now - there's a follow-up SixtySong for 1968 coming soon. As I say in the video, be safe and be healthy.
