That's The Way Love Goes - Janet Jackson
Jackson's first single for Virgin was based on a sample from a James Brown No. 1 R&B hit from 1974, "Papa Don't Take No Mess." On first listen, Jackson wasn't thrilled with Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis' track; the producers asked her to take it with her on her two-week Christmas vacation and when she returned she told them it was "the bomb."

LYRICS:
Like a moth to a flame
Burned by the fire
My love is blind
Can't you see my desire
That's the way love goes
Like a moth to a flame
Burned by the fire
My love is blind
Can't you see my desire
That's the way
Like a moth to a flame
Burned by the fire
That's the way
My love is blind
Can't you see my desire
That's the way love goes
Like a moth to a flame
Burned by the fire
That's the way love goes
My love is blind
Can't you see my desire
That's the way, that's the way love goes
Come with me don't you worry
I'm gonna make you crazy
I'll give you the time of your life
I'm gonna take you places
You've never been before
And you'll be so happy that you came
Oh I'm gonna take you there, ooh
That's the way love goes
That's the way love goes
That's the way love goes
That's the way love goes
Don't mind if I light candles
I like to watch us playin'
Baby I've got on what you like
Come closer baby closer
Reach out and feel my body
I'm gonna give you all my love
Oh sugar don't you hurry
You've got me here all night
Just close your eyes and hold on tight
Oh baby don't stop don't stop
Go deeper, baby, deeper
You feel so good I'm gonna cry
Oh I'm gonna take you there, ooh
That's the way love goes
That's the way love goes
That's the way love goes
That's the way love goes
That's the way love goes
That's the way love goes
Don't you know
Like a moth to a flame
Burned by the fire
My love is blind
Can't you see my desire
Like a moth to a flame
Burned by the fire
My love is blind
Can't you see my desire
That's the way
That's the way love goes
That's the way
That's the way love goes
That's the way love goes
That's the way love goes
That's the way love goes
That's the way love
That's the way love
That's the way love
That's the way love
That's the way love
That's the way love
That's the way love goes

The Power of Love - Celine Dion
Queens, N.Y. native Jennifer Rush was signed to CBS in Germany and found international success with her fourth single, written about her boyfriend Steven. The song kept failing in America, with low-charting versions by Rush herself and Air Supply and a slightly better showing for Laura Branigan. Finally it was a No. 1 smash for Dion.

LYRICS:
The whispers in the morning
Of lovers sleeping tight
Are rolling by like thunder now
As I look in your eyes
I hold on to your body
And feel each move you make
Your voice is warm and tender
A love that I could not forsake
'Cause I'm your lady
And you are my man
Whenever you reach for me
I'll do all that I can
Lost is how I'm feeling lying in your arms
When the world outside's too much to take
That all ends when I'm with you
Even though there may be times
It seems I'm far away
Never wonder where I am
'Cause I am always by your side
'Cause I'm your lady
And you are my man
Whenever you reach for me
I'll do all that I can
We're heading for something
Somewhere I've never been
Sometimes I am frightened
But I'm ready to learn
Of the power of love
The sound of your heart beating
Made it clear
Suddenly the feeling that I can't go on
Is light years away
'Cause I'm your lady
And you are my man
Whenever you reach for me
I'll do all that I can
We're heading for something
Somewhere I've never been
Sometimes I am frightened
But I'm ready to learn
Of the power of love
The power of love
The power of love
Sometimes I am frightened but I'm ready to learn
Of the power of love
The power of love, ooh ooh
(As I look into your eyes)
The power of love (The power of love)

The Power of Love - Huey Lewis & the News
Asked to contribute a song to the "Back to the Future" soundtrack, Lewis said he had the perfect tune: "In the Nick of Time." Negotiations went on so long, Lewis gave the song to another film, "Brewster's Millions." The "Future" folks were upset but Lewis said he had a second perfect song, "Back in Time." For another scene, Lewis came up with "The Power of Love," which became the movie's breakout hit.

LYRICS:
The power of love is a curious thing
Make a one man weep, make another man sing
Change a heart to a little white dove
More than a feeling, that's the power of love
Tougher than diamonds, whips like cream
Stronger and harder than a bad girls dream
Make a bad one good, mmm make a wrong right
Power of love will keep you home at night
Don't need money, don't take fame
Don't need no credit card to ride this train
It's strong and it's sudden and it's cruel sometimes
But it might just save your life
That's the power of love
That's the power of love
First time you feed it might make you sad
Next time you feed it might make you mad
But you'll be glad baby when you've found
That's the power that makes the world go round
Don't need money, don't take fame
Don't need no credit card to ride this train
It's strong and it's sudden and it's cruel sometimes
But it might just save your life
They say that all in love is fair
Yeah but you don't care
But you know what to do
When it gets hold of you
And with a little help from above
You feel the power of love
You feel the power of love
Can you feel it?
Don't take money, don't take fame
Don't need no credit card to ride this train
Tougher than diamonds and stronger than steel
You won't feel it until you feel
You feel the power, feel the power of love
That's the power, that's the power of love
You feel the power of love
You feel the power of love
You feel the power of love

This Guy's In Love With You - Herb Alpert
Alpert sang this Burt Bacharach/Hal David song to his wife on the beach in Malibu on a CBS special. The next day, the network was inundated with calls from viewers asking where they could buy the song. One day later, A&M released a single and it became the label's first No. 1.

LYRICS:
You see this guy, this guy's in love with you
Yes I'm in love who looks at you the way I do
When you smile I can tell it know each other very well
How can I show you I'm glad I got to know you 'cause
I've heard some talk they say you think I'm fine
Yes I'm in love and what I'd do to make you mine
Tell me now is it so don't let me be the last to know
My hands are shakin' don't let my heart keep breaking 'cause
I need your love, I want your love
Say you're in love and you'll be my girl, if not I'll just die
Tell me now is it so don't let me be the last to know
My hands are shakin' don't let my heart keep breaking 'cause
I need your love, I want your love
Say you're in love and you'll be my girl, if not I'll just die

To Know Him Is to Love Him - The Teddy Bears
Phil Spector was inspired to write the song by a photograph of his father's tombstone at Beth David Cemetery in New York. The inscription read: "To Know Him Was to Love Him."

LYRICS:
To know, know, know him is to love, love, love him
Just to see him smile, makes my life worthwhile
To know, know, know him is to love, love, love him
And I do (and I do, and I, and I do, and I, and I do, and I, and I do, and I)
I'd be good to him, I'd bring love to him
Everyone says there'll come a day when I'll walk alongside of him
Yes, just to know him is to love, love, love him
And I do (and I do, and I, and I do, and I, and I do, and I, and I do, and I)
Why can't he see how blind can he be?
Someday he will see that he was meant for me, oh oh, yes
To know, know, know him is to love, love, love him
Just to see him smile, makes my life worthwhile
To know, know, know him is to love, love, love him
And I do, yes I do, yes I do (and I do, and I, and I do, and I, and I do, and I, and I do, and I)

To Sir With Love - Lulu
Lulu hated the songs the producers of the film "To Sir With Love" were considering for the soundtrack. She asked her friend Mark London to write a title song she could sing. He composed the music in five minutes and the next day Don Black wrote the lyrics. "I was over the moon," says Lulu.

LYRICS:
Those schoolgirl days of telling tales and biting nails are gone
But in my mind I know they will still live on and on
But how do you thank someone who has taken you from crayons to perfume?
It isn't easy, but I'll try
If you wanted the sky I would write across the sky in letters
That would soar a thousand feet high 'To Sir, With Love'
The time has come for closing books and long last looks must end
And as I leave I know that I am leaving my best friend
A friend who taught me right from wrong and weak from strong
That's a lot to learn, but what can I give you in return?
If you wanted the moon I would try to make a start
But I would rather you let me give my heart 'To Sir, With Love'

Songwriters: Don Black / Mark London
