Great Forgotten Songs #11 – Rod Stewart “Love Touch”

“Love Touch” is a song performed by Rod Stewart and written by Gene Black, Holly Knight and Mike Chapman. It was released as a single in 1986 and peaked at #6 on the Billboard Hot 100.


The song was featured in the end credits of the Robert Redford romantic comedy, Legal Eagles, hence it is often listed with the subtitle “Theme from Legal Eagles” (it does not appear on the film’s soundtrack album). It also appears on Stewart’s album, Every Beat of My Heart.

The song is a plea from someone who has been fighting with his lover, but is apologizing and asking for another chance to “be good.”

Although it is among Stewart’s most successful songs, he rarely performs “Love Touch” in concert. Stewart holds a low opinion of the song’s lyrics, calling it “one of the silliest songs I’ve ever recorded,” in the liner notes of Encore: The Very Best of Rod Stewart Volume 2.

I'm a Brazilian journalist who always loved Classic Rock and Heavy Metal music. That passion inspired me to create Rock and Roll Garage over 6 years ago. Music has always been a part of my life, helping me through tough times and being a support to celebrate the good ones. When I became a journalist, I knew I wanted to write about my passions. After graduating in journalism from the Pontifical Catholic University of Minas Gerais, I pursued a postgraduate degree in digital communication at the same institution. The studies and experience in the field helped me improve the website and always bring the best of classic rock to the world! MTB: 0021377/MG
