Love Is Strong by The Rolling Stones

Album: Voodoo LoungeReleased: 1994Charted:
  • This was the first Stones single bass player Bill Wyman did not play on. Darryl Jones, who had played with Miles Davis and Sting, took over on bass when Wyman quit.
  • The video was directed by David Fincher, whose films include Se7en and The Social Network. The clip contains stunning visual effects, which were done at the Digital Domain studio and supervised by Fred Raimondi. Done in black-and-white, we see the band as giants stomping through New York City like Godzilla going through Tokyo - an image that was used in much of the promotional material for the Voodoo Lounge tour.

    In later years, the size-disparity effect would become commonplace, but it was no easy feat in 1994, when such attempts usually ended up looking like the Beastie Boys clip for "Intergalactic." Using advanced compositing techniques, Fincher and Raimondi were able to place the human figures in the setting with an uncanny realism, using camera moves to keep it interesting. The video won the MTV award for Best Special Effects.
  • R&B producer Teddy Riley cut four mixes of this song for a CD sampler.
  • This was the first single from Voodoo Lounge. The album won the first ever Grammy for Best Rock Album. It was the first album The Stones recorded without Bill Wyman, a founding member of the band. It was also the Stones' first release on Virgin Records. >>

My love for the Stones, is strong...The whole Voodoo album was a great show that they still have a lot of rockin left in their old bones.Tank - Goldsboro, Nc
Is this song really that recent? Wow, I only heard it on Forty Licks. It's really one of my favorites. Why is it always the ugliest people that make the sexiest music??Marissa - Akron, Oh
Great song. It reminds me of the Cramps' HUMAN FLY.Susan - Toronto, Canada
though the Stones albums post '81 (or even '78) don't have the multitude of classics that the old ones do, there's always that one (maybe two) real classic. Voodoo Lounge has "Love Is Strong."Patrick - Greenville, Sc
"Love is Stong" by the Stones and "Wicked as It Seems" , by Keith Richards are basically the same song riffs. Check it outPaul - Kahului, Hi
Lamest music videos ever? Nah, Mellencamp had that sown up. This is one of the Stones best clips! It won video of the year, too. The theme of the video has been copied many times since.Craig - Melbourne, Australia
This is such a great song. It's got that raw groove that's been missing since the days of Exile on Main Street, but it's still completely different. Great weaving and blending of all the different instruments, and Mick's vocals are so dark and threatening. I love it.Sam - Shanghai, China
i saw the video on beavis and buttheadJosh - Las Vegas, Nv
Actually, Angelina Jolie is not in this video. She is, however, in the video for the Stones' song "Anybody Seen My Baby?"Jacquie - Sparks, Nv
Best rocker from Voodoo Lounge(Out of Tears is the best song); still not the comeback we fans are waiting for.

How come the best band of all time makes some of the lamest music videos ever?

Angelina Jolie played in video of this song.Mr. Chimp - Brno, Czech Republic
