The project was initially titled Daisy Miller to disguise the artists working on the track (there was a lot of media speculation about Prince and Madonna working together and possibly being linked romantically).
"We were friends and talked about working together, so I went to Minneapolis to write some stuff with him, but the only thing I really dug was 'Love Song' We ended up writing it long-distance, because I had to be in L.A. and he couldn't leave Minneapolis, and quite frankly I couldn't stand Minneapolis. When I went there, it was like 20 degrees below zero, and it was really desolate. I was miserable and I couldn't write or work under those circumstances", Madonna recalled. Madonna and her musicians worked on the track later in 1988, and Prince added additional overdubs in mid-November 1988 at Paisley Park.
Although Prince also contributed to Like A Prayer, Keep It Together and Act Of Contrition, Love Song was the only collaboration with Madonna for which he was credited.
