Chanson D'Amour

"Chanson D'Amour" ("Song of Love") is a popular song written by Wayne Shanklin.

In 1958, two competing versions of the song became popular. One was by Art and Dotty Todd. The other was by The Fontane Sisters. Both became popular in April of that year.

In 1966, the song experienced a resurgence in popularity when it was released as a single by The Lettermen. This version became an adult contemporary hit in the United States.

Produced by Richard Perry, "Chanson D'Amour" became a massive hit in Europe for the retro styled jazz vocal group The Manhattan Transfer. It spent three weeks at number one on the UK Singles Chart in March 1977. This version also hit the top 20 of Billboard's Easy Listening survey.

The song was featured in the series finale of the long-running British sitcom Are You Being Served.
