"No Other Love" is a show tune from the 1953 Rodgers and Hammerstein musical Me and Juliet.[1][2]

Richard Rodgers originally composed this tune (with the title "Beneath the Southern Cross") for the NBC television series Victory at Sea (1952/1953). When Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein II collaborated on Me and Juliet, Rodgers took his old melody and set it to new words by Hammerstein, producing the song "No Other Love".[1] The song has a tango rhythm (referred to by Rodgers as a "languid tango" in his autobiography, Musical Stages).

The 1953 song should not be confused with "No Other Love", a song of 1950. The melody for the 1950 song was taken from Étude in E major, Op. 10, No. 3 by Frédéric Chopin.
