Subject: 1950: The Year in Music

Written By: Philip Eno on 03/04/15 at 1:36 am

"No Other Love" is a popular song from 1950, recorded by Jo Stafford with the Paul Weston orchestra backing her (released by Capitol Records as catalogue number 105), reached #10 on the Billboard charts in 1950. The piano artistry of George Greeley is also credited on the recording. The words were written by Bob Russell. The music is credited to Paul Weston (Jo Stafford's husband) but is actually derived from Frédéric Chopin's Étude No. 3 in E, Op. 10, and is practically identical to that of the song "Tristesse," a 1939 hit for French singer-actor Tino Rossi.

It should not be confused with "No Other Love", written and composed by Broadway team Rodgers and Hammerstein.
