"My Love" is a 1965 single release by Petula Clark which in early 1966 became an international hit, reaching #1 in the US.

Clark's regular songwriter and producer Tony Hatch wrote "My Love" while flying from London to Los Angeles, where he had a scheduled recording session with Clark. "My Love" was recorded at Western Studios and featured the backing of the Wrecking Crew.

Released in December 1965, "My Love" became Clark's second single to reach #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 in February 1966 making Clark the first British female to have two US #1 hits. Also a #1 hit in Canada, "My Love" returned Clark to the UK Top Ten for the first time since "Downtown" two years previous with a March 1966 peak of #4. "My Love" became a certified Gold record for US sales of one million units and in the UK the single earned a Silver disc for sales of 200,000 units. "My Love" also provided Clark with a hit in Australia (#4), New Zealand (#6), Rhodesia (#1) and South Africa (#6) and reached #13 in both the Netherlands and the Dutch speaking region of Belgium. In Germany "My Love" became a hit first in its original English version (#13) and then again when rendered in German as "Verzeih' die dummen Tränen" (Forgive the foolish tears) (#21). Translated recordings by Clark also made "My Love" a hit in France and Italy, respectively as "Mon amour" (#12) and "L'amore e il vento" (Love is the wind) (#24).
