Written By Bob and John Wills
Recorded by Patsy Cline February 4 1963
"Faded Love" is a Western swing song written by Bob Wills, his father John Wills, and his brother, Billy Jack Wills. The tune is considered to be an exemplar of the Western swing fiddle component of American fiddle. The melody came from an old fiddle tune Bob learned from his father, John Wills. "Faded Love" is a sentimental song about lost love. The name comes from the refrain that follows each verse:
I remember our faded love.
The song had even greater success when Patsy Cline covered the song in 1963. Her version became a hit, reaching No.7 on the U.S. Country charts and No.96 on the Billboard Hot 100.
Due to the aeroplane crash that ended Cline's life, her version was never released on a studio album. Instead, it was belatedly released on Patsy Cline's Greatest Hits, a compilation album in 1967. Cline's version was originally intended to be the title cut for a planned album and was made at what turned out to be the last recording session before her death.
