About Everlasting Love

"Everlasting Love" is a song written by Buzz Cason and Mac Gayden, originally a 1967 hit for Robert Knight and since remade numerous times, most successfully by the Love Affair, as well as Town Criers, Carl Carlton, Sandra, and Gloria Estefan. The original version of "Everlasting Love" was recorded by Knight in Nashville, with Cason and Gayden aiming to produce it in a Motown style referencing the Four Tops and the Temptations. When released as a single, the song reached #13 on the US chart in 1967. Subsequently, the song has reached the US Top 40 three times, most successfully as performed by Carl Carlton, peaking at #6 in 1974, with more moderate success by the duo Rex Smith and Rachel Sweet (#32 in 1981) and Gloria Estefan (#27 in 1995). In the UK, "Everlasting Love" was covered by the Love Affair: with a standout vocal performance by Steve Ellis it achieved #1 status in January 1968. That version eclipsed the Robert Knight original, which stalled at #40, although the latter was reissued in 1974 and reached #19 in the UK. Also in 1968, a cover by the Australian group Town Criers reached #2 in the Australian charts.
