This ballad was originally recorded by Lemar on his 2003 debut album, Dedicated. In 2010 the British R&B singer re-recorded the track with boy band JLS for his greatest hits compilation The Hits. Lemar explained why to Blues and Soul magazine: "When I was on tour around The Reason, JLS were my opening support act - and they obviously put on a good show, as well as bringing loads of fans with them! So I'd spoken to the guys quite a few times - we're on the same record-label, we have the same management company… Plus I'd known Marvin (Humes) a little bit before he actually formed JLS with Oritse (Williams). So we just thought 'Why not get on a TRACK together?'... So I spoke to the record-label and they suggested 'What About Love' - which was on my first album - because, though we never put it out as a single, it's a song that always goes down a storm whenever we're on tour. You know, it's like everyone's waiting for that moment - they all sing along, phones in the air... So we just decided to go into the studio together to give the song a new twist and breathe some new life into it. And we had a lotta fun doing it!"
Mike Campbell from Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers played the slide guitar on "Sixth Avenue Heartache." There is a connection here - Wallflowers lead singer Jakob's dad, Bob Dylan, played with Tom Petty in The Traveling Wilburys.
It has long been speculated that the Soundgarden song "Black Hole Sun" came from the name of a sculpture in Seattle, but according to their frontman Chris Cornell the title came from a phrase he misheard on the news. The band's name did come from a sculpture.
