Songfacts®:

  • This is not the first song called "Love Is Like A Violin," and it is certainly not the best. It was described by the March 1994 issue of the fanzine Nova Lepidoptera as "a straightforward love song from John's pen," meaning lead guitarist John Lees.

    The same issue of the magazine says the inner sleeve and the CD and booklet contain a verse which isn't included in the song, and does not appear to have been recorded. >>
