Love Resurrection

Album: Alf (1985)
Charted: 10 82

Songfacts®:

  • This was the first track on Alison Moyet's first solo album, co-written by Steve Jolley, Tony Swain and the lady herself, it runs to 3 minutes 52 seconds, and was released on the Columbia label backed by "Baby I Do".
    In 1979, the Barclay James Harvest song "Loving Is Easy" was banned from the BBC Top Of The Pops programme because of what appeared to be vague sexual innuendos; in 1984, "Love Resurrection" faced no such problems, even though it includes two thinly veiled references to sexual activity:
    "...a warm injection
    Is all I need to calm the pain"
    And "...I want you to grow in my hand".
    Although "Love Resurrection" did well in the UK singles chart, Americans were not so impressed; it entered the Billboard Chart at #89 week ending July 5, 1985, and peaked at #82. >>
