It matters not in the least whom we love


Explanation:
Or: it doesn't matter in the least whom we love
In a song title, you might also use "who" instead of the more grammatically correct "whom"

it doesn't matter who we love


Explanation:
This is also a line from a song by Zarah Leander (well I don't know who actually wrote it but she sang it). The title of this song is "Nur nicht aus Liebe weinen", and it tells of how love is full of lies and will always end, with an interesting mixture of deep melancholy (in the verses) and "never-mind-ness" in the chorus. I think she sang it in the thirties.
"it is of no importance who we love, and who will break our heart one day, we are driven by fate and the end is always in sight. ...

Chorus: Just don't cry for love because there's not just that one (man) on the earth - there are so many men on the planet, and I'll love whoever pleases me! And that's why today I want to be yours, you are to swear me love and faithfulness, and even if I feel it is a lie - I'm lying too, and am yours".
