Nevertheless I'm in Love with You
"Nevertheless I'm in Love with You" (sometimes referred to simply as "Nevertheless") is a popular song written by Harry Ruby with lyrics by Bert Kalmar, first published in 1931. The song was a hit for Jack Denny in 1931, and was revisited in 1950 by The Mills Brothers, Paul Weston, Ray Anthony, Ralph Flanagan, Frankie Laine and Frank Sinatra, with perhaps the most compelling version being that of the McGuire Sisters.
The Mills Brothers' rendition was released by Decca Records as catalog number 27253. It first reached the Billboard magazine charts on November 3, 1950 and lasted 15 weeks on the chart, peaking at #9.
The recording by Paul Weston was released by Columbia Records as catalog number 38982. It first reached the Billboard magazine charts on October 20, 1950 and lasted 15 weeks on the chart, peaking at #9.
The recording by Ray Anthony was released by Capitol Records as catalog number 1190. It first reached the Billboard magazine charts on October 27, 1950 and lasted 14 weeks on the chart, peaking at #15. The flip side was "Harbor Lights".
The recording by Ralph Flanagan was released by RCA Victor Records as catalog number 20-3904. It first reached the Billboard magazine charts on October 6, 1950 and lasted 10 weeks on the chart, peaking at #16. The flip side was "The Red We Want Is the Red We've Got".
'Nevertheless' was featured in the movie Three Little Words (1950), a film about the songwriters.
The song appeared as a soundtrack in a drama film Lianna (1983) and was performed by Jeanne Stahl.
