You Brought A New Kind of Love to Me

"You Brought a New Kind of Love to Me" is a 1930 popular song. The credits list music and lyrics as written by Sammy Fain,[1]Irving Kahal, and Pierre Norman. Since Fain was primarily a music writer and Kahal a lyricist, it may be assumed that the music was by Fain and lyrics were by Kahal, with Norman's contribution uncertain.

The song was introduced in the movie The Big Pond (1930) by Maurice Chevalier[1][2] who also made a successful recording of it the same year. Other hit recordings in 1930 were by Paul Whiteman and his Orchestra (with a vocal by Bing Crosby), and the High Hatters.[3]
In Britain, the song was covered by Bob and Alf Pearson.[4]

The song has been used in other movies, including Monkey Business (1931),[2] where the Marx Brothers[2] steal Chevalier's passport and sing this song to try to prove they are Chevalier as they attempt to pass through US Customs.[5] The song is a well-known standard, recorded by many artists, though Chevalier's versions (in English and French) and Frank Sinatra's version are best known.

The song was referenced in the 1963 comedy A New Kind of Love, starring Paul Newman and Joanne Woodward, and featuring Chevalier playing himself.
