1989 Simply Red – It’s Only Love (US:#57 UK:#13)

“It’s Only Love Doing Its Thing” is a track featured on Barry White’s album The Man. British soul band Simply Red later covered the song, under the shortened title “It’s Only Love”, as the lead single for their third studio album, A New Flame. The Simply Red cover had its greatest success by charting at number one in Italy. The song later features in several greatest-hits albums and a ballad collection of the same name, and it remains a live favorite.
