In Case You're in Love is the fourth studio album by American pop duo Sonny & Cher, released in 1967 by Atco Records.

Album information[edit]

The song "Little Man" was the first single released from the album, and was perhaps their most successful single in Europe, peaking at #1 in five European countries. It is, however, to be noted that it never topped the UK chart as it peaked at number 4 there. The song was less successful in the US, where it reached #21. The next single released was the minor hit "Living for You" and the third single was the huge hit "The Beat Goes On". It became their third top ten song in the US, peaking at #6.

The album is largely a collection of cover songs including "Stand by Me" (originally by Ben E. King) and "We'll Sing in the Sunshine"). In the album there are also two songs performed by Bono, "Misty Roses" and "Cheryl's Goin' Home". Both are now available in the 1999 bonus track of the solo Bono album Inner Views.
