|Writer(s)||G. Clifton Bingham|
|Composer(s)||James Lynam Molloy|
Love's Old Sweet Song is a Victorian parlour song published in 1884 by composer James Lynam Molloy and lyricist G. Clifton Bingham. The first line of the chorus is "Just A Song At Twilight", and it is sometimes misidentified as such.
The song was recorded in 1923 for a two-reel short film made in the DeForest Phonofilm sound-on-film process. It also appeared as the theme in the orchestral score in John Barrymore's 1926 picture The Sea Beast.
The song is mentioned in the chorus of Moonlight Bay, a popular song written in 1912.
