(I Love You) for Sentimental Reasons" is a popular song written by Ivory "Deek" Watson, founding member of the Ink Spots, and William "Pat" Best, founding member of the Four Tunes. Best later said that Watson had nothing to do with the creation of the song, but Watson maintained in his late 1960s autobiography that he and Best wrote the song together, lyrics and music respectively.

Not yet including "Nat" in his professional name, King Cole and his jazz trio enjoyed their first 'pop' best-seller with this memorable 1946-47 ballad. The song itself spent 7 weeks atop Your Hit Parade and spawned several other successful recorded versions: Dinah Shore, Ella Fitzgerald, Eddy Howard and Charlie Spivak are also posted
