The song was written by Michelle Grainger, Tony Hayes, and Steve Wadey. In 1966, it went to #4 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100, #2 in the U.K., #3 in Australia, and #1 in Canada. The single sold more than two million copies in Spain. The rock band Los Bravos formed in Madrid, Spain, in 1965, and were the first Spanish rock group to have an international hit single. They were Miguel Vicens Danus (bass), Tony Martinez (guitar), Manuel Fernández (organ), and Pablo Gomez ( drums) with German-born Michael Kogel as the lead singer. They had been signed with a Spanish division of Decca Records and then went to England to work with British producer, arranger, composer Ivor Raymonde. Raymonde has worked with Marty Wilde, Billy Fury, and Dave Berry. A dance remix of the song was released in 1986.

Here are the lyrics to “Black is Black” by Los Bravos:

Black is black
I want my baby back
It’s gray, it’s gray
Since she went away, Ooh-Ooh
What can I do
‘Cause I-I-I-I-I’m feelin’ blue

If I had my way
She’d be back today
But she don’t intend
To see me again, Ooh-Ooh
What can I do
‘Cause I-I-I-I-I’m feelin’ blue

I can’t choose
It’s too much to lose
My love’s too strong
Wow! Maybe if she
would come back to me
Then it can’t go wrong

Bad is bad
That I feel so sad
It’s time, it’s time
That I found peace of mind, Ooh-Ooh
What can I do
‘Cause I-I-I-I-I’m feelin’ blue

I can’t choose
It’s too much to lose
My love’s too strong
Wow! Maybe if she
would come back to me
Then it can’t go wrong

Black is black
I want my baby back
It’s gray, it’s gray
Since she went away, Ooh-Ooh
What can I do ‘
Cause I-I-I-I-I’m feelin’ blue
‘Cause I-I-I-I-I’m feelin’ blue
