"'65 Love Affair" is a song performed by Paul Davis from his album Cool Night. Released in 1,981, the song spent a total of 20 weeks on the charts ultimately peaking at #6 for two weeks on the Billboard Hot 100 in April 1,982. The song also reached #5 on the Billboard Adult Contemporary chart, #11 on the Canadian RPM Top Singles chart, and #13 on the New Zealand Singles chart. On the Billboard Year-End Hot 100 chart, "'65 Love Affair" placed at #39, and on Cashbox's chart at #60.
This song marked Davis's second single release upon his defection from Bang Records to Arista, the first being "Cool Night". The style of "'65 Love Affair" was reminiscent of such blue-eyed soul groups as Hall & Oates, a vein that Davis had not explored before. Davis had originally titled the song "'55 Love Affair", but Arista felt that some modernization was needed to target an audience whose teenage years had occurred in the 1,960s. In addition, Arista pointed out the fact that Davis was only 7 years old in 1,955, too young for any meaningful "love affair".
