"I'll Never Stop Loving You" is a popular music song, with music written by Nicholas Brodzsky and lyrics by Sammy Cahn for the 1955 film Love Me or Leave Me. The song was published in 1955.

The recording by Doris Day was released as Columbia Records (Love Me or Leave Me (Doris Day album)) as catalog number 40505.[1] It first reached the Billboard magazine charts on July 23, 1955. On the Disk Jockey chart, it peaked at #13; on the Best Seller chart, at #15; on the composite chart of the top 100 songs, it reached #93 (a misleading figure, because the top-100 list was started by Billboard after the peak of the song's popularity).[2]

The song was nominated for the 1955 Academy Award for Best Original Song but lost to "Love Is a Many-Splendored Thing" from the film of the same name.

British singer David Whitfield recorded a cover version in 1956. 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.
