"I Love You, Samantha" is a song written by Cole Porter for the 1956 film High Society, where it was introduced by Bing Crosby.[1][2]

In the United Kingdom, an instrumental version of the song recorded by the Pete Moore Orchestra was used by presenter David Jacobs to introduce his BBC Radio 2 programme The David Jacobs Collection, which aired from 1998 to 2013.[3] Jacobs had previously used the orchestral section of the soundtrack recording to end his music programmes, fading out just before the Bing Crosby vocal began.
