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 love this song, but I think if they sang about the chapters of this book
again this time they would also sing about prologue that says "Turn off the
internet and go out to find your love". :)

I grew up listening to, and admiring this song and group. Charlie was my
neighbor for a time ending about a year or so ago. He is still kicking and
still singing(not out to any crowds at this time). He is extremely humble
and insists that he does not deserve the credit for the royalty that I
believe him to be, he gives all of the credit to his "brothers"(the other
group members). Unfortunately, the record companies have been and continue
to be the only ones truly profiting from the Monotones talent. Please send
Charlie your good energy, good wishes and prayers for good health. He
currently lives in Florida.

My troupe used this song in one of our songs during transitions when we
performed our mainstage production, "Almost Maine" in the Tampa theatre!!!
Performed over a thousand people, best experience and it was the most
amazing as all of us were dancing behind the wings!! xD The whole audience
was jamming to this song, so I'm glad we shared this song as well to

Hey Frank ! Tremendous job, and great respect for the men and their music
!I concur... thanks for the great classic tune, burned into my memory..
Now check this out.. we were "pre-teens" when they came out.. we heard it
in the burbs, and a few year later we were in the streets marching for
civil rights. Now THAT is the impact these men had on "white kids", it
was posititive, it was about LOVE.. which is the common language and
emotion that unites us all as humans. So I say... this wasn't merely a
song from 'Joisey"... this was a pivotal unifiying cultural force.Bless
Charles and Warren.. indeed !
