Springfield re-recorded the song the same year in London and released the song as the B-side of “Give Me Time”. Claudine Longet recorded the song on her 1967 album of the same title. Lainie Kazan also recorded “The Look of Love” (arranged by Pat Williams) on her 1967 album “Love is Lainie”.

Sergio Mendes’ hit rendition on the Sergio Mendes & Brasil ’66 album “Look Around”, reached #4 on the pop charts after their performance in the Academy Awards telecast in March 1968. The lead vocal on this single was handled by Janis Hansen, not Lani Hall, a rarity in the early Brasil ’66 canon. In 1969, soul group The Delfonics also covered the song on their album “La La Means I Love You”.

During 1970, Isaac Hayes covered the song for his 1970 album “…To Be Continued”. While Hayes used the same lyrics, his cover includes a unique instrumental which has been heavily sampled on R&B and hip-hop records.
