Secret love - José

'Secret love' was written in 1953 by the American songwriting duo of Sammy Fain and Paul Francis Webster. Its first performance was in the film 'Calamity Jane' by Doris Day. It received an Academy Award for Best Original Song. The song was released on record as well, reaching number 1 in the USA and the UK singles chart.

The song was covered in 1982 by ex-Luv' member José, who released it as her third solo single in September 1982. This upbeat, modern-sounding version reached number 11 in the Dutch Top 40.
