"You Made Me Love You (I Didn't Want to Do It)" is a popular song from 1913 composed by James V. Monaco with lyrics by Joseph McCarthy. It was introduced by Al Jolson in the Broadway revue, The Honeymoon Express (1913), and used in the 1973 revival of the musical, Irene.

One of the earliest singers to record the song was Al Jolson. His rendition was recorded on June 4, 1913. It was released as Columbia A-1374 and was an international hit.[1] In Britain, Columbia had to order 25,000 copies from the U.S. to satisfy unprecedented demand for a gramophone record.[2] Another successful recording in 1913 was by William J. Halley. Al Jolson recorded the song again on March 20, 1946, and it was released as Decca 23613. Jolson also performed the song for the soundtrack of the 1946 film, The Jolson Story.[3]

In 1937, Roger Edens wrote additional lyrics to the song for Judy Garland. The new lyrics cast Garland in the role of a teenage fan of Clark Gable. Garland sang the song to Gable at a birthday party thrown for him by Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer (MGM). MGM executives were so charmed by her rendition that she and the song were added to the film, Broadway Melody of 1938. Garland recorded the "Gable" version on September 24, 1937. It was released as Decca 1463. MGM released the song as a b-side in 1939, opposite Garland's recording of "Over the Rainbow" from The Wizard of Oz.[4]
