Barbara George's 'I Know (You Don't Love Me No More)' smacks of 60′s summer fever. Despite the obvious heartbreak indicated within the title, the bouncy rhythm and somewhat cheerful melodies provide a distinct paradox. Perhaps it represents the acceptance that love is no longer in the air, or maybe just expresses the hope of moving on.
George's voice is melodic, emotional and above all powerful. The repetition of the main lyric serves to create a great crescendo, as her voice intensifies with each phrase.
This song is not only sweet and jangly, it also subtly conveys an amorous sentiment as embedded between the summery vibes.
