"True Love" is a popular song written by Cole Porter and was published in 1956. The song was introduced by Bing Crosby and Grace Kelly in the musical film High Society. [1] The Crosby–Kelly version was also a popular recorded version of the song, peaking at #5.

Kelly's contribution on the record is relatively minor, duetting with Bing on only the final chorus. Nonetheless, the single is co-credited to her and became her only gold record and 21st gold record for Bing Crosby.

True Love is the name of C.K. Dexter Haven's yacht, on which he and Tracy Lord honeymooned off the coast of Maine. They are fictional characters in the play The Philadelphia Story, on which the musical is based.

Other recordings

A version of the song by Jane Powell out at the same time as the Crosby–Kelly version was also popular. Elvis Presley cut a version of it that was featured on his successful album "Loving You" from 1957. Ricky Nelson included a version of the song on his 1957 debut album "Ricky". The Everly Brothers recorded a version for their 1962 album Instant Party without any commercial success though [2]. In 1961, Patsy Cline covered the song on her second studio album, Patsy Cline Showcase. [3] Other versions to achieve success include Jack Jones, 1965, as the closing tune for "There's Love and There's Love and There's Love", an album of romance classics arranged by Nelson Riddle; Richard Chamberlain's 1963 single, a 1976 version by George Harrison on his album Thirty Three & 1/3, a 1988 version by Shakin' Stevens, a 1993 duet by Elton John and Kiki Dee and the song has also featured on a number of albums cut by Connie Francis.
