Love Theme from Spartacus

Alfred Bierstadt / Sunset in the Yosemite Valley (1868)
Terry Callier / Love Theme from Spartacus

I think one of the most beautiful songs ever written is “Love Theme from Spartacus” composed by Alex North. I’ve never heard the lyrics until today. It seems so appropriate for our times. Here, the song is interpreted by jazz guitarist Terry Callier.


Lyrics / Love Theme from Spartacus

can it be, do you hear
a new freedom song is ringing

no more dark, no more fear
there’s a new day that is free

something simple is the key
only love will set us free

its so far, its so near
almost close, almost here
