Love Bomb

Album: Love Bomb (1975)

Songfacts®:

  • This song is a call for love and peace. Written by Lynsey de Paul and Barry Blue, the yearning strings, pulsing beat and bass propel this sedate soulful song along until the inevitable explosion of the bomb, after which Lynsey's vocals go ever higher, "reaching for the stars above."
  • The song was also covered by the US soul singer Cheryl Lynn on her album In love. Her version features more of a funk/soul arrangement. >>
