"Under the Moon of Love" was a single by Curtis Lee.

The song was written by Tommy Boyce and Curtis Lee, and produced by Phil Spector for Curtis Lee in 1961. It was released on Dunes Records #45-2008, with the "B" side "Beverly Jean". It was a minor hit in the U.S. reaching #46 on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart.[1]

In 1975 Mud covered the song for their album Use Your Imagination which reached No. 33 in the UK Albums Chart. It was also the B-side of their 1976 single, "Beating Around The Bush", which failed to chart.

In 1976 the song was revived by rock and roll revival act Showaddywaddy, and became a major hit in the UK. The Mike Hurst-produced version went on to spend three weeks at the top of the UK Singles Chart in December that year,[2] and has since sold over a million copies in the UK.[3]
