Do You Love Me – The Song
Do You Love Me is a cover song by Brian Poole and the Tremeloes. The original 1962 hit single was recorded by the Contours for Motown’s Gordy Records label. Written and produced by Motown CEO Berry Gordy Jr.. “Do You Love Me” references the 1960s dance moves the Mashed Potato and the Twist. The song is noted for the spoken recitation heard in the introduction which goes: “You broke my heart / ‘Cause I couldn’t dance / You didn’t even want me around / And now I’m back / To let you know / I can really shake ’em down.” Like many American R&B songs of the 1960s, “Do You Love Me?” was covered by a number of British Invasion groups including Brian Poole and the Tremeloes, The Dave Clark Five, and The Hollies.
The Heart – The Shape
This record has been modelled into a loving heart. The heart shape and its meaning has evolved over hundreds of years. Nowadays it means love but before the 13th and 14th centuries it was generally drawn for decorative purposes. People at that time thought of our hearts as books of memory and believed feelings for the beloved were somehow written on your heart.
