I'm in Love
Fabian Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Strange, dear, but true, dear
When I'm close to you, dear
The stars fill the sky
So in love with you am I

Even without you
My arms fold about you
You know, darling, why
So in love with you am I

In love with the night mysterious
The night when you first were there

In love with my joy delirious
When I knew that you could care

So taunt me, and hurt me
Deceive me, desert me
I'm yours, 'til I die
So in love
So in love
So in love with you, my love, am I

In love with the night mysterious
The night when you first were there

In love with my joy delirious
When I knew that you could care

So taunt me, and hurt me
Deceive me, desert me
I'm yours, 'til I die
So in love (so in love)




So in love (so in love)
So in love with you, my love, am I

"Hey kid can you sing?"
"No"
"Good! Come with me"

Fabian admitted that he could not sing and Chancellor Records fixed his voice so that he could sing and make records - This side and the flip side, "Shivaree", proves the raw voice of Fabian before his fix-up.

@MyMy-zi7yv

Personally, I've defended Fabian many times simply for the fact I liked the songs he sang. His not so great singing was perfect for the songs he sang, but truth is he still couldn't sing very well even after these recordings that you say was raw and that Chancellor fixed. In fact, Paul McCartney was absolutely cruel talking about Frankie Avalon and Fabian about their singing. Now I personally heard this interview so I'm not telling you what I read or what somebody told me. I heard and seen the video on youTube maybe 7 to 10 years ago. But a couple of years ago I looked for the interview to let a McCartney fan hear it and it is no where to be found. My only conclusion is, is that McCartney got so much flack about his mean spirited verbal assault on their talent that he probably bought out the owners of that interview and took it off youTube or anywhere else. It was so disgusting how he was degrading Avalon and Fabian. Truth is Avalon could sing and the dude was talented as he played the trumpet very well. The only thing I can think of a giant of an entertainer like McCartney talking down to these guys is the fact he was jealous that they probably, especially Fabian, made it more on their looks than anything else. As if that is something new in entertainment!!!!
