♫ Could It Be I’m Falling In Love ♫

This song, released in 1972, was written by Melvin Steals and Mervin Steals, who according to Chancellor of Soul, were two songwriter brothers working for The Spinners’ label, Atlantic Records, who were sometimes credited as “Mystro and Lyric.” If The Spinners sound a little more like Motown than New York, that’s because they used to be signed with Motown Records. The self-titled Spinners album was their first produced on their shiny new Atlantic contract. They were even known as “The Motown Spinners” before, but changed their name to “The Detroit Spinners” after moving to Atlantic.

For a band which peaked in the mid-’70s, The Spinners certainly seem to have staying power. They still tour today, are a feature of oldies’ stations and nostalgia concerts, were inducted into The Vocal Group Hall of Fame in 1999, and as recently as 2006, appeared in a July episode of The Late Show With David Letterman.

Could It Be I’m Falling In Love
The Spinners

Since I met you I’ve begun to feel so strange
Every time I speak your name (that’s funny)
You say that you are so helpless too
That you don’t know what to do

Each night I pray there will never come a day
When you up and take your love away
Say you feel the same way too and I wonder what
It is I feel for you

Could it be I’m falling in love (with you baby)
Could it be I’m falling in love (ooh)
Could it be I’m falling in love
With you, with you with you, with you

I don’t need all those things that used to bring me joy
You made me such a happy boy
And honey you’ll always be the only one for me
Meeting you was my destiny
You can be sure I will never let you down
When you need me I will be around
And darling you’ll always be the only one for me
Heaven made you specially

Could it be I’m falling in love

  1. Ooh I had forgotten this one (silly me)!
    One of the better groups to come out of the 1970s….(you just gotta see them tearing out with ‘Rubber Band Man’ on Soul Train…best piece of stage business…like ever!).
    Definately ‘Coming Down Out of The Tower’ music.

    • In that case, I’ll make sure Joyful includes this one in the music she’s installing in your tower today! Somebody else suggested Robber Band Man, but I haven’t yet gotten around to listening to it … I will, though!

      • I wondered what the tippy-toe sounds and little tinkling giggles were…then I remembered it was Thursday and Joyful was renovating the tower.
        The flowers are lovely, the ravens are a bit put out because they have to share the towers with lots of persistently cheerful song birds.
        And the weather’s changed?
        How did Joyful manage that?

    • One of the few who are still around from that era. I do miss the music of the 50s, 60s, and even 70s. Today’s music does nothing but give me a headache. Oh wait … my parents used to say the same when I listened to the Beatles!
