About This Song
“I’m Through With Love” was written in 1931 by Fud Livingston, Matty Melneck, and Gus Kahn.

About This Version
Tony Bennett and Ralph Sharon recorded “I’m Through With Love” in 1959 for their album Tony Sings For Two, which was recorded with just Bennett and Sharon on piano. In spite of opposition from Mitch Miller, which likely resulted in the album not being released until 1961, Tony Sings For Two was a triumph.
“I’m Through With Love,” as well as Tony Sings For Two, is available from iTunes.
