It Must Be Love - Labi Siffre

The first time I felt compelled to collect music was after listening to Madness in 1981. I treasured my first childhood 45s, 'Our House' and 'It Must Be Love'. I may have even slept with them, very delicately. No stuffed animals for this kid! It wasn't until decades later that I discovered Labi Siffre's version from 1971. There's no ska horns, runaway funeral processions, big birds or killer whales, but I love the original ballad just the same. Enjoy.

Notice Labi's cameo towards the end of the video?
