Retro Single Review: Porter Wagoner & Dolly Parton, "Please Don't Stop Loving Me"

1974 | Peak: #1

Their only chart-topping duet served as the mid-point between five consecutive #1 singles for Parton, while earning Wagoner his first #1 single since 1962.

As their remarkable partnership was beginning to break apart, the duo wrote this song together, and it speaks just as well to the impending doom of their professional generic viagra in canada life together as “I Will Always Love You” did.

Perhaps that’s what helped make it such a powerful song, with genuine desperation captured in the lyrics.   From this point on, Wagoner’s few remaining hits would come only through his duets with Parton, while this entire era of her career would soon be overshadowed by her phenomenal success as a crossover singer and media personality.

But at least on record for just under three minutes in 1974, it sounded like they both needed each other equally.

  1. I’ve always liked this song, mostly because of the melody and jaunty tempo. Plus it was one of the first Porter-Dolly duets I ever heard. It’s almost surprising to note that, for all the success they enjoyed, this was their only #1 hit as a duo.
