Love Song

Album: Earth To The Dandy Warhols (2008)

Songfacts®:

  • Many Dandy Warhols songs are about specific people, but this one is not. When we asked lead signer Courtney Taylor-Taylor if it was about a specific person, he answered by stating: "'Love Song' is about love songs." (Here's our full Dandy Warhols interview.)
  • This features guest guitarists Mark Knopfler (Dire Straits) and Mike Campbell (Tom Petty). Vocalist Courtney Taylor-Taylor told Sentimentalist Magazine how he hooked up with the duo on this song: "I e-mailed Mark and texted Mike. We've played with Tom Petty a couple times so I knew Mike from then on. I just wanted Mark because his recordings were so important in my group of friends when I was around college age."
  • This song contains the phrase "blister in the sun," which was lifted from The Violet Femmes song "Blister In The Sun." Lead singer Courtney Taylor-Taylor told us that "Blister in the Sun" is one of his favorite love songs of all time.
