Love Song (4:14)

Cover of Little Voice

From Little Voice and 91 other releases

Love Song is the first single released from Sara Bareilles’s 2007 album Little Voice. It was written in response to her record label Epic requesting that she write a marketable love song. The song was also featured in a Rhapsody commercial along with “Bottle It Up”, and in commercials for the TV show The Return of Jezebel James and the movies Made of Honor and Suburban Girl.

Many radio stations cut out the bridge of the song, shortening the track to 3:54 instead of the album length of 4:21.

On July 12, 2008, “Love Song” was named the 9th best song of the past decade on Rick Dees and the Weekly Top 40.

Featured initially as the free iTunes song of the week on June 16, 2007, the song debuted a few months later at #100 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100. After her appearance in a Rhapsody TV commercial, in which she performs the song, “Love Song” rocketed from #72 to #16 on the Hot 100 and #32 to #5 on the Hot Digital Songs chart. It has gone on to sell more than 1.3 million copies.

The song surfaced on the iTunes Top 100 around October 2007, hovering between the top 50 and 60. The song’s inclusion in the Rhapsody commercial boosted its popularity, resulting in 74,000 digital sales and a leap from #57 to #4 over the course of a few days. On Christmas Day 2007, the song was #2 on the iTunes chart, reaching the #1 spot on the iTunes Pop 100.

In the first week of 2008, the song cracked the Billboard Hot 100, jumping to #9, where it stayed for four non-consecutive weeks before peaking at #4. The single was recently certified 2x Platinum by the RIAA.
