Everlasting Love featured in Sir Kenneth Branagh’s 2021 film, Belfast, is a classic song that, in 1968, catapulted the Love Affair to fame and for the next three years the group were almost as popular, in Britain, as the Beatles. This never before told ‘behind the screams’ story of the youngest group to have a No. 1 hit, may be fun and fascinating, but it is also a serious piece of pop music history, appealing to everyone who loved, or lived in the swinging 60s.
