"Be My Love" is a popular song with lyrics by Sammy Cahn and music by Nicholas Brodzsky. It was published in 1950 and featured in the 1950 movie The Toast of New Orleans, where it was sung by Kathryn Grayson and Mario Lanza. The Lanza recording of the song (released by RCA Victor Records as catalog number 20-1561) was a million-seller and a Billboard #1 charting hit. Ray Anthony's cover version made the top 30 and a 1967 remake by Mel Carter was played primarily by easy listening stations. Luis Mariano, a great Spanish tenor, sang it in French.

Andy Williams released a version of the song on his 1964 album, The Academy Award-Winning "Call Me Irresponsible" and Other Hit Songs from the Movies. Broadway singer Jason Danieley also covered the song on his 2008 record, Jason Danieley and the Frontier Heroes. Also Vytautas Juozapaitis, a soloist of Lithuanian National Opera and Ballet Theatre recorded a Lithuanian version entitled "Atminimu Bangos" on his debut album Negaliu Nemyleti (Can't Help Falling In Love) released in 2004.
