Edie Adams sang this
on the final episode of The Lucy-Desi Comedy Hour
, which was a continuation of the sitcom I Love Lucy
. On the 1960 episode ("Lucy Meets The Mustache"), Adams and her real-life husband, comedian Ernie Kovacs, move next door to the Ricardos, and chaos ensues. Adams was unaware that the series' stars, Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz, were having marital problems when she chose the love song for her appearance on the show. Things were tense on set, as the couple wasn't speaking to each other. When Adams started singing about everlasting love during rehearsal, she noticed everyone was crying. "I had just inadvertently picked maybe the most inappropriate song for that day," she recalled on the PBS documentary Finding Lucy
. The day after filming the episode, Lucy filed for divorce.
