About To All the Girls I've Loved Before

"To All the Girls I've Loved Before" is a song written by Hal David (words) and Albert Hammond (music). It was originally recorded by Hammond in 1975 on his album 99 Miles From L. A., but is more famous for a 1984 recording by Julio Iglesias and Willie Nelson, which appeared on Iglesias's album 1100 Bel Air Place. A breakthrough for Iglesias in the English language market, the song peaked at #5 on the Billboard Hot 100 and #1 on the Canadian RPM Top Singles. "To All the Girls I've Loved Before" went to number one on the country chart, and was one of two entries on the country chart for Julio Iglesias and Willie Nelson as duo (the second was "Spanish Eyes", which peaked at #8 in late 1988). David and Hammond created the song in 1975 and registered it with the US Copyright Office on April 28 of that year. Following Bobby Vinton's recording released on October 9, 1980, the song was registered as published in the US. It was Iglesias' biggest hit in the United States and Canada, and Nelson's biggest European hit. The record also appeared on Australian, New Zealand and South African charts. The song has become Iglesias's signature English-language tune, prominently performed at his concerts since the single's release. Thanks to this song, 1100 Bel Air Place became Iglesias' worldwide best selling album. In 1984, Nelson and Iglesias were also named "Duo of the year" by the Country Music Association, and "To All the Girls I've Loved Before" was named single of the year by the Academy of Country Music

To all the girls I've loved before
Who traveled in and out my door
I'm glad they came along
I dedicate this song
To all the girls I've loved before

To all the girls I once caressed
And may I say, I've held the best
For helping me to grow, I owe a lot, I know
To all the girls I've loved before

The winds of change are always blowing
And ev'ry time I tried to stay
The winds of change continued blowing
And they just carried me a way

To all the girls who shared my life
Who now are someone else's wife
I'm glad they came along
I dedicate this song
To all the girls I've loved before

To all the girls who cared for me
Who filled my nights with ecstacy
They live within my heart
I'll always be a part
Of all the girls I've loved before

The winds of change are always blowing
And ev'ry time I tried to stay
The winds of change continued blowing
And they just carried me way

To all the girls we've loved before
Who traveled in and out our door
We're glad they came along
We dedicate this song
To all the girls we've loved before

To all the girls we've loved before
Who traveled in and out our doors
We're glad they came along
We dedicate this song
To all the girls we've loved, before
