"Love Makes the World Go 'Round" is a popular song written by Ollie Jones. The most popular version was recorded by Perry Como in 1958. He made two recordings that year, one on September 5 and one on September 16. The 45rpm single based on one of these was released by RCA Victor Records as catalog numbers 47-7353 (mono) and 61-7353 (stereo). It peaked at #33 on the Billboard magazine charts.

A United Kingdom release was made by RCA (78rpm, catalog number 1086) which reached #6 on the UK charts and #5 on the Belgian charts. A Japanese release in stereo was made by RCA (catalog number SX-1002). All of these were backed by "Mandolins in the Moonlight" on the flip side.

British Rockabilly trio The Jets reached number 21 in 1982 with their cover version.
