"April Love" is a popular song with music by Sammy Fain and lyrics by Paul Francis Webster. It was written as the theme song for a 1957 film of the same name starring Pat Boone and Shirley Jones and directed by Henry Levin.

Helped by the release of the film, "April Love" became a number-one hit in the United States for Pat Boone,[1] and spent twenty-six weeks in the Billboard Hot 100 charts (it spent 6 weeks at number 1). In 1958, it was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Music, Original Song but lost out to “All the Way”.[2]
