Remember Love

Album: The Oakland Zone (2003)

Songfacts®:

  • This is a ballad written by Tower of Power founding member and sax player Emilio Castillo. He told us, "That's kind of a true story about my life in marriage. I find that you're in the 'in love' part of the relationship and then you make the commitment, you get married and the 'in love' part wears off. You're no longer 'in love,' you still love the person but it's no longer the 'she hung the moon' thing. Then you have kids and life gets complicated, your every waking hour is based on those children, so I just said, 'Remember love. Remember what it was like when we were 'in love' - put your high heels on, put on that red dress, we're going out tonight. We're going to get a baby-sitter, we're going to kick it up the way we used to.'

    People my age who have been married a long time are saying, 'Remember love, let's get back to that 'in love' thing.'" (Check out our interview with Emilio Castillo. You can learn much more at his website, towerofpower.com.)
