“You’ve Made Me So Very Happy” – Blood, Sweat & Tears

I’ve lost at love before
got mad and closed the door
but you said try, just once more

I chose you for the one
now I’m havin’ so much fun
you treated me so kind
I’m about to lose my mind

You made me so very happy
I’m so glad you
came into my life

The others were untrue
but when it came to lovin’ you
I’d spend my whole life with you
’cause you came and you took control
you touched my very soul
you always showed me that
lovin’ you is where it’s at
You made me so very happy
I’m so glad you
came into my life

I love you so much it seems
You’re even in my dreams
I can hear you
yeah I can hear you calling me
I’m so in love with you
all I ever want to do is
thank you baby
thank you baby

You made me so very happy
you made me so very happy baby
I’m so glad you came
into my life

Every day of my life
I wanna thank you
You made me so very happy
Oh, I wanna spend my life with you
thank you baby
thank you baby

Blood, Sweat & Tears is the second album by the band Blood, Sweat & Tears, released in 1968. It was a huge commercial success, rising to the top of the U.S. charts for seven weeks and yielding three successive Top 5 singles. It received a Grammy Award for Album of the Year in 1970 and has been certified quadruple platinum by the RIAA with sales of more than four million units in the U.S.

Bandleader Al Kooper and two other members had left left Blood, Sweat & Tears after their first album. Bobby Colomby and Steve Katz searched for a replacement singer and selected David Clayton-Thomas. Three more musicians joined to bring the band to nine members. Columbia assigned James William Guercio (who was simultaneously working with new band Chicago) to produce a new album.

The song selection was much more pop-oriented than the first album, with more compositions from outside the band. It was recorded at the then state of the art CBS Studios in New York City. The studio had just taken delivery of one of the first of the model MM-1000 16-track tape recorders, built by Ampex. The new technology allowed for far more flexibility in overdubbing and mixing than the 4- and 8-track tape recorders which were standard in 1968. The album was among the very first 16-track recordings released to the public.[citation needed]

The album was selected for the 2006 book 1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die.
