Groovy Kind of Love

A Groovy Kind of Love” was written by Toni Wine and Carole Bayer Sager. The music is heavily based on the Rondo movement of Muzio Clementi’s Sonatina in G major, op. 36 no. 5. The song title was an early use of the then-new slang word “groovy”. Wine and Bayer-Sager reportedly wrote the song in 20 minutes.

The Mindbenders, a British rock group, took the song to #2 on both the UK and US charts in 1966. Phil Collins, in 1988, took the song to #1.

My instrumental arrangement is in the 1960s style.
