Love In Any Language

Album: Morning Like This (1986)

Songfacts®:

  • This audience-friendly anthem was written by John Mohr and John Mays.
  • Patti was in love with this track as soon as she heard it. She explained in CCM Magazine presents 100 Greatest Songs In Christian Music: "It was already completed when it was played for me and I just loved it. I've never really been an artist that says, 'Let's water this message down,' and this one seemed very universal to me. It was also nearing the time that the Gulf War was about to begin, and it felt powerful to sing a song that said love doesn't have any boundaries - love is just love, it doesn't matter where you live."
