About You Don't Know What Love Is

"You Don't Know What Love Is" is a popular song of the Great American Songbook, written by Don Raye (lyrics) and Gene de Paul (music) for the Abbott and Costello picture Keep 'Em Flying (1941), in which it was sung by Carol Bruce. The number was deleted from the film prior to release. The song was later included in Behind the Eight Ball (1942), starring the Ritz Brothers. "You Don't Know What Love Is" was again sung by Carol Bruce; it was her third and final film until the 1980s. After Miles Davis recorded an instrumental version of the song in 1954, it became a jazz standard, with Dinah Washington releasing the definitive vocal version a year later. Other noteworthy recordings were made by Billie Holiday and Sonny Rollins.
