Book Of Love by The Monotones

The members of the Monotones:

*Lead Singer: Charles Patrick (born September 11, 1938)
*First Tenor: Warren Davis (born March 1, 1939)
*Second Tenor: George Malone (January 5, 1940 -- October 5, 2007)
*Bass Singer: John Franklin Smith (May 17, 1939 -- November 26, 2000)
*Second Bass Singer: John Ryanes (November 16, 1940 -- May 30, 1972)
*Baritone: Warren Ryanes (December 14, 1937 -- June 16, 1982)

Hailing from Newark NJ. (pronounced Nork!)

Book Of Love peaked at #5 on the Billboard Pop charts in 1958

There was a clip in "green and white" on youtube that had more cutaways to the audience than anything. They also edited out a verse. So, I made it true black and white, and edited the bits together to make a whole performance. The original lofi audio was from the TV studio and had claps mixed in, so I flew in the original track and compressed it a little. I made this because there were no real videos of this great band performing this great tune. The song was inspired by a Pepsodent toothpaste commercial. "You'll wonder where the yellow went, when you brush your teeth with Pepsodent". http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iPsoxmXjtfc

I do not own the rights to any of this, just a fan.
(Frank O' The Mountain 2011)

A copy recently surfaced with the Full Dick Clark intro and the missing verse. Time for another edit! Charles and Warren, bless you guys for the great tune!

I know who wrote the book of love. it was Yahweh our Heavenly Father and
his Holy and powerful Son Jesus Christ of Nazareth. They started writing
the book of love before the world was. Before our Heavenly Father laid the
foundations of the earth. Before He put the Sun and the moon in their place
in the sky.

They wrote it even before he put the oceans in their place and the
boundaries thereof. They wrote this awesome book of love for us all, long
before he made us. And without a shadow of a doubt they finished the book
of love, when Jesus Christ our Lord hung on the cross and gave his life for
each and everyone of us here on planet Earth.

Thank you so much father Yahweh and thank you so much Jesus my Lord and
King. I want to thank each and everyone of you that is following Jesus
Christ our Lord on his Google Plus + page.

This is Mikey Mike coming at you from Asheboro North Carolina. And may
Jesus Christ our Lord bless all of you in all aspects of life. I asked if
of course in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, Amen.

Enjoy the song, by the monotones. I give all the glory to my Lord and
Savior Jesus Christ of Nazareth because it's him that setting up this
Google+ page not I. but I am without a doubt honored and touched deeply in
my heart. That Jesus has chosen me to oversee his Google+ page. I love you
all with a Godly love see you next time on Google+.

Ironic how elements of songs form. From Wikipedia it states:

The "boom" part of the song was a result of a kid kicking a ball against
the garage while they were rehearsing. It sounded good, so they added it to
the song

Book Of Love by The Monotones What's in chapter five?

Автор hershenso ( назад)
I love this song. I was once at a workshop with Harville Hendrix who leads
all these relationship workshops and has writtne some very well known books
including Getting the Love You Want. I went up to him in the lunch line and
I told him about the song and I said I guess you wrote the book. And if you
look it at broadly it does kind of fit in with his message.
Finally, I am blown away that this was inspired by the Pepsodent
commercial. Never would have guessed in a million years.
