“Looking For Love” is a 1986 Italo-Disco song by American singer and photographer Tom Hooker. Hooker was born Thomas Beecher Hooker on November 18, 1957, in Greenwich, Connecticut. Hooker, was brought to Europe when he was six months old. At the age of ten, he started his musical career as a drummer. At 13, he created his first band. At 15, he first appeared in public at a concert as a drummer/singer. He studied languages in Switzerland.

In 1980, he moved to Italy, where he was discovered by Italian producers. He had his first major success in 1986 with “Looking for Love”. Hooker also co-wrote and sang lead vocals on the first two Den Harrow albums, and co-wrote many subsequent Den Harrow songs under the name T. Beecher.
