The Tymes So Much in Love

The Tymes So Much in Love

Doo Wop

Some good beach music for us today;  the track even  opens with sounds of singing birds and ocean waves.  The song “So Much in Love” was written by George Williams and Bill Jackson and arranged by Roy Straigis. It went to #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1963. There have been many covers, including versions by Jay and the Americans, Art Garfunkel, and All-4-One. Timothy B. Schmit of The Eagles covered it for the film Fast Times at Ridgemont High. It’s a fine example of beach music.

The group formed in Philadelphia in 1956 originally as the Latineers and consisted of Donald Banks, Albert Berry, Norman Burnett, and George Hilliard. In 1960, they were joined by George Williams on lead vocals and became The Tymes.  There have been some personnel changes over the years, but the group continues to tour and perform today.

Here are the lyrics to “So Much in Love” by The Tymes:

“As we stroll along together
Holding hands, walking all alone
So in love are we two
That we don’t know what to do
So in love (doo, so in love)
In a world of our own (doo, so in love)

As we stroll by the sea together
Under stars twinkling high above
So in love are we two
No one else but me and you
So in love (doo, so in love)
So much in love (doo, so in love)
So in love (doo, so in love)
So much in love (doo, so in love)

We stroll along together
I tell you I need you oh so much
I love, love you my darling
Can you tell it in my touch?

When we walk down the aisle together
We will vow to be together till we die
So much love have we two
Just can’t wait to say “I do”
So in love (doo, so in love)
Are you and I (doo, you and I)
So in love (doo, so in love)
Are you and I (doo, you and I)
So in love (doo, so in love)
Are you and I (doo, you and I)”
