The Five Keys The Glory of Love

The Five Keys The Glory of Love

Doo Wop Groups

Ah, love. It’s complicated, isn’t it? The song, which was written by Billy Hill and recorded by Benny Goodman recorded in 1936, is a pop and jazz standard. The version by The Five Keys, a Rhythm and Blues and doo wop group, went to #1 on the R&B chart in 1951. There have been many covers, including those by Billy Cotton and his Orchestra, Peggy Lee, Dean Martin, The Velvetones, Big Bill Broonzy, Otis Redding, Tom Rush, Jimmy Durante, Eddy Arnold, Bette Midler, and Paul McCartney, just to name a few.

The Five Keys formed in Newport News, Virginia, in the late 1940s, and there were numerous personnel changes over the years. Group members on this record were Rudy West (with his beautiful lead vocal), Bernie West, Ripley Ingram, Raphael Ingram, and Maryland Pierce.

Here are the lyrics to “The Glory of Love” by The Five Keys:

“You’ve got to give a little, take a little
And let your poor heart break a little
That’s the story of, that’s the glory of love

You’ve got to laugh a little, cry a little
And let the clouds roll by a little
That’s the story of, that’s the glory of love

As long as there’s the two of us
We’ve got the world and all its charms
But when the world is through with us
We’ve got each other’s arms

You’ve got to win a little, lose a little
And always have the, the blues a little
That’s the story of, that’s the glory of love

(As long as there’s the two of us)
(We’ve got the world and all its charms)
And when the world is through with us
We’ll have each other’s arms

You’ve got to win a little, lose a little
And always have the, the blues a little
That’s the story of, that’s the glory of love
…the glory of love”
