Real Love

Album: Wild Life (1992)
Charted: 69

Songfacts®:

  • This song featured a very popular (or in some eyes, a very unpopular) Shannen Doherty, who was featured in the hit TV show Beverly Hills, 90210. It's rumored that Shannen needed extra money to pay for expenses that got out of control. Another rumor is that the lead singer of Slaughter liked Doherty on the show so much so that he invited her to be in their video. >>

  • Stephanie from AlbuquerqueOkay Mark could u ever tell the truth... U did not write these lyrics... Not even close.
  • Jason from Denver, CoYou have got to be kidding me! This is the only song you could find by Slaughter? C'MON man! What about Fly to the angels or Up all night, sleep all day? By the way Joshua,Chapel Hill, NC. Slaughter And Motley Crue sound NOTHING alike!
  • Shelly Dyke from Wichita, KsSlaughter is one of the best bands around. In The Heat Of The Moment and On My Own are very good songs. Check them out.
  • Tom from Cleveland, OhMark Slaughter contibuted the track "We Wish You A Merry Xmas and A Headbanging New Year" a 2008 Eagle Records Christmas compilation... The track also featured Doug Aldrich, Chris Wyse and Ray Luzier...
  • Joshua from Chapel Hill, NcIt's hard to tell Motley Crue, and Slaughter a part.
