5.0 out of 5 stars The Look of Love (1982), 23 Mar. 2015
By 
This review is from: The Look Of Love (Part 1) (MP3 Download)
The Look of Love (1982) is the third single from New Wave band ABC and is their highest charting UK record. It was released as both a 7" and 12" single and reached #4; it is taken from their #1 album The Lexicon of Love (1982). The song is made up of four parts, titled The Look of Love Part One, Part Two, Part Three, and Part Four.

Produced by Trevor Horn, it is a New Wave pop song, and like all the tracks on The Lexicon of Love, it has a catchy tune, the lyrics dealing with love and relationships. Later they would change music styles, experimenting with a more raw and guitar-driven sound on Beauty Stab (1983), Sophisti-Pop and Soul on Alphabet City (1987), and Dance and House music on UP (1989). They would never lose their New Wave, Synth-Pop sound entirely, though.

The Look of Love is also included on the albums Absolutely (1990) The Look of Live (1990), and Look of Love: The Very Best of ABC (2001). The video is available on the VHS and DVD versions of Absolutely (1990). In 1982, NME ranked the single #5 in their Singles of the Year awards, and Sounds ranked it at #18. It peaked at #18 in the U.S. and #1 in Canada, reaching the top twenty in several other countries.

*There is also a 1990 remix intended to promote the ABC greatest hits album, Absolutely, and uses part of the melody from Computer Love (1982) by German Electronic band Kraftwerk

What a classic 80s song this is, always turn the volume up when I play it and sing along, brings back great memories as well.

How could you not like it? The 80s style will go on forever and groups like ABC were what made it happen.
