About Mighty Love

"Mighty Love" is a 1973 song recorded by the American R&B vocal group The Spinners (known as "Detroit Spinners" in the UK). The song was co-written by Joseph B. Jefferson, Bruce Hawes and Charles Simmons and was produced by Thom Bell. Recorded at Philly's Sigma Sound Studios, the house band MFSB provided the backing. Bobbie Smith and Philippé Wynne rotate lead vocals during the first half of the song, with Wynne taking over completely for the final two and half minutes. During live performances by the Spinners, the song was often used to showcase Wynne's exceptional ad-lib ability. When it was released as the lead single from the album of the same name, the song was split into two parts and "Mighty Love – Pt.1" became another hit for the group, holding the number one spot on the US R&B Singles chart for two weeks in March 1974 while also reaching number twenty on the Pop Singles chart. Todd Rundgren, Lisa Stansfield and Phil Perry are among those who have covered the song. The song appears in Richard Pryor's 1986 film, Jo Jo Dancer, Your Life Is Calling.

Once there was a boy and girl
Boy said "I love you so"
Girl said "I'll never leave you"
They grew older and left each other
'Cause that's the way love goes
That's the way love goes
Then there's a time
Seems like you'll never find
Someone willing to love you
Keep on lookin', you'll soon discover

A mighty love
Will sometimes make you weep and moan
A mighty love
You'll sit all day by the telephone
'Cause you're all alone
You need a mighty love
Hey, hey

Some say that you're sure to find
True love and peace of mind
At the end of a rainbow
There's no sign in the sky to follow
'Cause that's the way love goes
Baby, that's the way love goes
And so there's a rhyme
That says life will soon be fine
Love is just what you make it
Keep on lovin', you'll soon discover

A mighty love
Will sometimes make a weak man strong
A mighty love
Will sometimes make a rich man weep
And knock him off his feet to have a mighty love

Mighty, mighty, mighty, mighty
Mighty, mighty love jones comin' down on me baby yeah
Hey, hey
I can feel the world getting' brighter, brighter with your lovin'
You see baby
With a mighty love you can sometimes turn the world around
With a mighty love you can, you can turn the world around sometimes
Yes you can, uh
Hey baby
Makes music have a happy, ha-ha-happy sound
Makes you move, makes you groove
You got the feelin' head is reelin'
Come on
Ha-ha, I gon' gon' gon' gon' get your lovin'
Hey baby, hey hey
Got to love, got to love ya, got to love ya, got to love ya, treat ya
You got to lo-o-o-o-ve, baby
I knew it when I first met ya that you had a mighty love baby
I'm gonna wait on ya, gonna wait on ya, gonna wait on ya, baby
