This song is a classic by an english rock band taken from their 8 million selling album :o damn they were huuge in the 80's 8-)

I believe this is one of their biggest and most well known hit and possibly their signature song.

UK Single Charts; #9
Billboard Hot 100: #2

I'd say Here I Go Again is the signature track, that song is still overplayed to this day. But Is This Love is definitely up there with their most popular songs.

I think Coverdale's ego in a sense hurt the band from sustaining their massive success as he kept replacing the band every album, and I think it was largely why Slip Of The Tongue was nowhere near the hit their 1987 s/t albumw as.

Everything from 1987 is fantastic. This ballad was the perfect choice as a single. Love the song the music video and the hair
But that's the way I like it baby I don't want to live forever
