Baby, I Love Your Way


Peter Frampton

Songfacts®:  You can leave comments about the song at the bottom of the page.

This is a very romantic love ballad. Frampton is telling his girl that he loves everything about her and wants to be with her day and night. (thanks, Alec Thorp - Yorktown Heights, NY)
This went nowhere when Frampton first released it as a single in 1975. The next year, he included it on his live album, Frampton Comes Alive, and it helped the album become a huge hit. The live version was the second single released from the album, after "Show Me The Way" and before "Do You Feel Like We Do."
Lisa Bonet sings this in the 1999 movie Hi Fidelity. John Cusak's character hates the song until he hears her sing it.
In 1988, the group Will To Power had a US #1 hit with a medley of this and "Free Bird."
Big Mountain hit #6 in the US with this in 1994. Their version was on the soundtrack to Reality Bites.

An ok song that, as an oldie, is overplayed on the radio these days, along with a few other Frampton hits. Why do stations only seem to have a set playlist of the same old tunes and neglect to play so many other great old songs?

Slow ballads like this, imo, are much better than their hardrocking counterparts. Especially if you intend to make it "your song". My girl loves this song so I have to put it on when we are getting in the mood.

Great song to get a woman in the mood too. Light some candles, put this on and she's putty in yourhands. Great song in concert, but the LP version is awful compared to this. What an overall great album. He never compared to what he did on Frampton Comes one has actually.

Frampton had the uncanny ability to take a medium to slow song and make it rock. I don't know how he did it but he did.

Will To Power's version is not so good!! They misquote one of the most visually beautiful lines in the song. They say "Shadows grow so long before my eyes with the help of some fireflies..I wonder how they have the power to shine, shine, shine.." as opposed to "Moon appears to shine and light the sky" etc. etc. which makes a lot more sense! As long as they were redoing the song, they should have sung the correct words. Then, it may not have been so bad . Bottom line, why mess with PERFECTION!!!! Simone, Los Angeles, CA

On the Will To Power 1989 release "Baby I love Your Way/Freebird", I liked the female vocals that featured on the "Baby I Love Your Way" section, but the nasal male vocal on the "Freebird" section was downright irritating and I feel it spoiled what otherwise would've been a decent cover... Big Mountain's 1994 cover of "Baby I Love Your Way" was an OK cover as well

No, it wasn't. That's another Peter Frampton song but it sure as hell isn't "Baby, I love your way."

Another interesting thing to note is that this is often misrepresented as a Bob Marley song on Search engines and Peer-to-Peer software, since it has a reggae beat and Peter Framptons voice is similar to Marley's, to an extent.

Will To Power's version was less a medley and more of a blending of the two songs. It was done very well. The two different songs sound almost organic; almost as if they were meant to be together.
- Robert, Puyallup, WA
One of my favorites of all time.
- AJ, Cleveland, GA
This song is really cool on the "Live" album
- Connor, Whakatane, New Zealand
This was performed on the show "Family Guy" as a anniversary gift from Peter to Lois.

You have to to post comments.
Susanna Hoffs - "Eternal Flame"Susanna Hoffs - "Eternal Flame"
The Prince-penned "Manic Monday" was the first song The Bangles heard coming from a car radio, but "Eternal Flame" is closest to Susanna's heart, perhaps because she sang it in "various states of undress."

Was "Pearl" Eddie Vedder's grandmother, and did she really make a hallucinogenic jam? Did Journey have a contest to name the group? And what does KISS stand for anyway?

Scott was Stevie Wonder's bass player before becoming a top session player. Hits he played on include "I Will Survive," "Being With You" and "Sara Smile."

Gramm co-wrote this gorgeous ballad and delivered an inspired vocal, but the song was the beginning of the end of his time with Foreigner.
