Song of the Day: Engelbert Humperdinck, “After The Lovin'”

Happy 87th birthday to Arnold George Dorsey, better known as Engelbert Humperdinck. He’s considered one of the finest middle-of-the-road performers around. "After The Lovin’" was written by Ritchie Adams with lyrics by Alan Bernstein, and released by Humperdinck in October 1976. It reached #1 on the Adult Contemporary charts in the US and Canada, #8 on the Hot 100, #7 on the RPM Top Singles chart in Canada, and #1 in New Zealand.

  1. I named my teddy Engelbert Humperdinck when i was a child because I heard it and thought it was a made up name. Apparently his auntie used to live just off the high street in Bourton on the Water (so I was told when I worked down there) I assume she is long dead.


  2. I know this song. He took his name from a German composer famous for “Hansel und Gretel”. I never quite understood why as it’s not the nicest name. I mean the last name sounds like it came from an Austin Powers film. I can’t believe he is 87!
