Love (3:21)

Cover of Lennon Legend

From Lennon Legend and 9 other releases

“Love” is a song by John Lennon, originally released in 1970 on his John Lennon/Plastic Ono Band album. The song first came out on Lennon’s 1970 album John Lennon/Plastic Ono Band. “Love” later appeared on the 1982 compilation The John Lennon Collection, and was released as a promotional tie-in single for the collection. The single version is a remix of the original track, which most notably differs in having the piano intro and outro (played by Phil Spector) mixed at the same volume as the rest of the song; on the original album version, these parts begin much quieter and increase in volume.

An alternate take of the song appears on the John Lennon Anthology box set.

The picture on the sleeve for 1982 release of “Love” was taken by famed photographer Annie Leibovitz on December 8, 1980 - the very day of Lennon’s murder.

Like the 1982 UK issue, the original version of the song was released as a single again in October 1998 for the Japanese market only with the Japanese edition of another compilation Lennon Legend: The Very Best of John Lennon, and gained moderate success on the Japan’s Oricon chart.
