"That's Old Fashioned (That's the Way Love Should Be)" as written by Bernie Baum, Florence Kaye and Bill Giant....
We hold hands in the movie show
So they say that we're old fashioned
Or we stroll beneath the silvery moon,
And we carve our initials in the old oak tree
That's old fashioned, that's the way love should be

We enjoy sitting side by side
In the booth in the ice cream parlor
Where we play the nickelodeon, ah-ah-ah-ahn
And we dance when we hear our favorite melody
That's old fashioned, that's the way love should be

It's a modern changing world
Everything is moving fast
But when it comes to love I like
What they did in the past

I'm the kind who loves only one
So the boys say I'm old fashioned
Let them laugh, honey I don't mi-i-i-i-ind
I've made plans for a wedding day for you and me
That's old fashioned, that's the way love should be

    General CommentThis is my view on love. Relationships should be developed slowly. Today, people just jump into bed together as soon as they meet and it kills the spirit of romance. I guess I'm just an old soul and a hopeless romantic.

    General CommentAmazing song. Great melody and use of horns in the studio production.

    The song has no pretentious hidden symbolism, and no profanity. The message is as timeless as Romeo and Juliet.

    Yet how prophetic the song really was. Fifty years ago, pre-texting, tweeting and e-mail, two people communicating and falling in love, and this is all that matters.

    Probably the best Everly Brothers single. Ironically, this was their last big hit as the Warner Brother years were the brothers beginning of the waning of their popularity. But what beauty in the simplicity.
