  • Lyrics
  • During a concert recorded for the BBC Radio programme The Friday Rock Show, front man Jack Russell said "House Of Broken Love" is a song about the very next address on lonely street.
    It appears though to have had a more direct - and for White, painful - inspiration. It was written after his first divorce. Lead guitarist Mark Kendall had also gone through a break up; the two men were sitting together when their manager walked in and asked, "What is this, the house of broken love?"
  • The band performed the song on the American Music Awards in January 1990, and it was released the same year backed by "Bitches And Other Women". In December 2009, a picture disc of the single turned up on Ebay for $39.99. >>
