I Love You (Cole Porter song)

"I Love You" is a song written by Cole Porter in 1944 for his stage musical Mexican Hayride. It was popularized by Bing Crosby in the same year. The lyrics of the chorus are satirically and deliberately banal, the verse apologizing for the use of lyrical cliches.

Versions have also been recorded by Frank Sinatra, Jo Stafford, Bill Evans, and John Coltrane. It has become a popular jazz standard tune.

Barbra Streisand performed several lines in her "Color Me Barbra Medley" from the TV special and album "Color Me Barbra".
