"Tru Love" featured in the 1956 MGM film "High Society," one of the most popular Hollywood musicals of the 1950s, a remake of the 1940 film "The Philadelphia Story," which itself was based on the Broadway play of the same name. Cole Porter wrote the music and lyrics to the songs featured in "High Society" and "True Love" was sung by Bing Crosby and Grace Kelly. This was Kelly's last movie appearance before she married Prince Rainier of Monaco. The recording was made on 22 January, 1956 (other sources give 9 February and 22 February, 1956, as the recording date), and was released on Capitol w750 that year. The first record release of the number, however, was by Jane Powell, also in 1956. Her recording was not made until June, but was released first, in July, on Verve V-2018. Elvis's version appeared on the soundtrack album of his second film, "Loving You."



True Love
performed by:
Bing Crosby & Grace Kelly



Suntanned, windblown
Honeymooners at last alone
Feeling far above par
Oh, how lucky we are

While I give to you and you give to me
True love, true love

So on and on it will always be
True love, true love

For you and I have a guardian angel
On high, with nothing to do
But to give to you and to give to me
Love forever true

For you and I have a guardian angel
On high, with nothin' to do
But to give to you and to give to me
Love forever true

Love forever true




True Love
performed by:
Elvis Presley



Suntanned, windblown,
honeymooners at last alone
Feeling far above par,
Oh how lucky we are

While I give to you and you give to me
True love, true love

So, on and on it will always be
True love, true love

For you and I have a guardian angel,
on high With nothing to do
But to give to you And to give to me
Love forever true

Love forever true
