Its lyricist, Richard Adlerand its composer, Robert Allenwere both best known for collaborations with other partners. The music Allen composed, aside from this song, was usually for collaborations with Al Stillmanand Adler wrote the lyrics after the death of his usual composing partner, Jerry Ross. The song's genesis was a comment made to Adler by his lawyer: "You know what Shakespeare said: 'All the world loves a lover.
Doris Day and Adler knew each other through Day's having starred in the film version of The Pajama Game whose songs Adler and Ross had written originally for the stage musical version of The Pajama Gameand Day had mentioned to Adler that she was looking for a new novelty song to record and Allen on a visit to Los Angeles presented "Everybody Loves a Lover" for consideration by Day, her husband-manager Marty Melcherand Mitch Millerwho headed Columbia Recordsfor which company Day recorded.
Although Day, Melcher and Miller all saw the song's potential as a hit for Day, Melcher made Day's recording of "Everybody Loves a Lover" conditional on the song's copyright being granted to Artists Music, the publishing firm he owned with Day — a condition to which Allen was not agreeable. However, after a few days, Melcher phoned Allen to say that Day would record the song without her and Melcher acquiring its publishing rights.
On the Disk Jockey chart, it peaked at 6; on the Best Seller chart, at 17; and on the Hot composite chart, it reached The two segments end on the same word, "Pollyanna", sung in harmony. The song was Day's last big charting hit in the US, although she would hit 4 in in the UK with the title song of her then-current movie Move Over, Darling.
Besides concurrent covers for the UK market by both the Undertakers and Cliff Bennettthe Shirelles' version of "Everybody Loves a Lover" was also the template for the Sandie Shaw version recorded for her Sandie album, and also the Peaches and Herb version recorded for their album For Your Love. Also a live performance by Beryl Marsden of "Everybody Loves a Lover" with the Shirelles' version's arrangement was recorded at the Cavern Club in June and released on the multi-artist album At The Cavern released Checkmates, Ltd.
