Limahl – Only For Love (US 12″)

Posted by DjPaulT on 20th March 2017

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1983

“Only For Love” is the debut single by former Kajagoogoo singer Limahl, following being fired from the group by his bandmates in 1983. The song was featured in the first UK version of Now That’s What I Call Music, and later included on Limahl’s 1984 debut solo album, Don’t Suppose. The song became his first UK Top 20 hit, peaking at No. 16 on the UK Singles Chart. It remains his second most popular single in the UK as a solo act (the first being “The Neverending Story”). The song also reached No. 5 in Switzerland, No. 9 in Austria and No. 51 in the U.S..

Limahl performed the song with Beth Anderson on the TV show American Bandstand on March 9, 1985.

The song also played a part in the singer meeting producer Giorgio Moroder, while he was performing the song at a rock festival in Tokyo the following year. Moroder would help Limahl reach greater international success later in his career.
