“There’s a kind of hush all over the world tonight
All over the world you can hear the sounds of lovers in love
You know what I mean
Just the two of us and nobody else in sight
There’s nobody else
and I’m feelin’ good just holdin’ you tight

So listen very carefully
Closer now and you will see what I mean
It isn’t a dream
The only sound that you will hear
Is when I whisper in your ear
“I love you forever and ever”

There’s a kind of hush all over the world tonight
All over the world you can hear
the sound of lovers in love

So listen very carefully
Closer now and you will see what I mean
It isn’t a dream
The only sound that you will hear
Is when I whisper in your ear
“I love you forever and ever”

There’s a kind of hush all over the world tonight
All over the world
people just like us are falling in love
Yeah, they’re falling in love
They’re falling in love”.

Citazioni.

There’s a Kind of Hush is a popular song written by Les Reed and Geoff Stephens. Originally recorded by Stephens’ group the New Vaudeville Band in 1967 as a neo-British music hall number, this version of the track became a hit in Australia and South Africa. However, in the rest of the world, a near-simultaneous cover was a big hit for Herman’s Hermits. The song was a charted hit again in 1976 for The Carpenters.
The song was introduced on the 1966 album Winchester Cathedral by Geoff Stephens‘ group the New Vaudeville Band; like that group’s hit “Winchester Cathedral“, “There’s a Kind of Hush” was conceived as a neo-British music hall number although it is a less overt example of that style. The first single version of “There’s a Kind of Hush” was recorded in 1966 by Gary and the Hornets, a teen/pre-teen male band from Franklin, Ohio whose version—entitled “Kind of Hush” produced by Lou Reizner—became a regional success and showed signs of breaking nationally in January 1967; the single would reach No. 4 in Cincinnati and No. 3 in Erie PA. However an expedient cover by Herman’s Hermits was released in the US in January 1967 to reach the Top 30 of the Billboard Hot 100 in three weeks and proceeded to a peak of #4—affording the group their final US Top Ten hit—with Gold certification for US sales of one million units awarded that April. The record notched two positions higher on the Silver Dollar Survey for 3–10 March 1967 on WLS, for an overall rank of #26 for 1967, and topped the Boss 30 for 8–22 March 1967 on KHJ. In the UK Herman’s Hermits‘ “There’s a Kind of Hush” would reach No. 7. The success of the Herman’s Hermits version led to the release of the original New Vaudeville Band track as a single in some territories with both of these versions charting in Australia with peaks of No. 5 (Herman’s Hermits) and No. 12 (New Vaudeville Band) and also in South Africa where the New Vaudeville Band bested the Herman’s Hermits‘ No. 9 peak by reaching No.
