"After the Lovin'" is a single by Engelbert Humperdinck, Produced by Joel Diamond for Silver Blue Productions, composed by Ritchie Adams with lyrics by Alan Bernstein. The single was a U.S. top-ten hit in late 1976/early 1977, reaching number eight on the Billboard Hot 100 and number five on the Cash Box Top 100.[1] It became a RIAA gold record.[2] It is ranked as the 61st biggest U.S. hit of 1977.[3] The song also reached number 40 on the country singles chart (which, despite spending much of his early career recording country songs, was his first appearance in the country top 40 charts) and spent two weeks atop the easy listening chart.[4]

"After the Lovin'" reached number seven on the Canadian chart ranking 80th for the year 1977. It hit number one on Canada's Adult Contemporary list.[5]

In New Zealand, the song spent two weeks at number one,[6] ranking 10th for the year 1977 in that country.[7]

The song failed, however, to chart in the UK, despite Humperdinck's earlier successes.
