My Love (ver. 1) by Tony Hatch - Piano Sheets and Free Sheet Music

  
About the Song
"My Love" is a song performed by Petula Clark which, like most of her hits of the era, was written by Tony Hatch. Hatch was on a flight from London to Los Angeles, where he was joining Clark to record a new album, and was putting the finishing touches on a tune entitled "The Life and Soul of the Party," which was to be included on the LP and released as a single. The American seated next to him inexplicably claimed the phrase had no meaning in the States, so Hatch quickly dashed off the lyrics to "My Love" before landing and set them to music soon after arrival. Although she detested the song on first hearing, Clark was coaxed into recording it. Unhappy with the result, she begged Warner Bros. Records not to release it, but executives there ignored her pleas. It went on to become her second US chart-topper (reaching Number One on the Billboard Hot 100 in early 1966) and made Clark the first.    Download this sheet!
About the Artist
Tony Hatch (born Anthony Peter Hatch, 30 June 1939, Pinner, Middlesex, England[1]) is an English composer, songwriter, pianist, music arranger, and producer. Allmusic journalist, Richie Unterberger, states "Hatch had success in various segments of the entertainment industry from the 1960s onwards, but he will be best remembered for his work as a producer and songwriter for several British pop and rock stars in the 1960s. As a staff producer at Pye Records, Hatch worked with The Searchers, Petula Clark, his wife Jackie Trent and on several mid 1960s singles by David Bowie, long before that singer had become famous. Hatch's productions boasted a clean and well-arranged sound that, particularly on his collaborations with Petula Clark, displayed some traces of mainstream pop and Broadway.[2] Encouraged by his musical abilities, his mother — also a pianist — enrolled him in the London Choir School in Bexley, Kent when he was ten. Instead of continuing at the Royal Academy of Music, he left school in 1955 and found a job with Robert Mellin Music in London's Tin Pan Alley. Before long, he was writing songs and making a name for himself within.
