"The Look Of Love" as written by Jeff Barry and Ellie Greenwich....
When your world is full of strange arrangements
And gravity won't pull you through
You know you're missing out on something
Well that something depends on you

All I'm saying
It takes a lot to love you
All I'm doing
You know it's true
All I mean now
There's one thing yes one thing that turns this gray sky to blue

That's the look, that's the look
The look of love
That's the look, that's the look
The look of love
That's the look, that's the look
The look of love

When your girl has left you out on the pavement (goodbye)
Then your dreams fall apart at the seams
Your reason for living's your reason for leaving
Don't ask me what it means

Who got the look
I don't know the answer to that question
Where's the look
If I knew I would tell you
What's the look
Look for your information
Yes there's one thing, the one thing that still holds true
What's that

That's the look, that's the look
The look of love
That's the look, that's the look
The look of love
That's the look, that's the look
The look of love

If you judge a book by the cover
Then you judge the look by the lover
I hope you'll soon recover
Me I go from one extreme to another

And all my friends just might ask me
They say, "Martin, maybe one day you'll find true love"
And I say, "Maybe there must be a solution to
The one thing, the one thing we can't find"

That's the look, that's the look
Sisters and brothers
That's the look, that's the look
Should help each other
That's the look, that's the look
Oh oh oh
Heavens above
That's the look, that's the look
Hip hip hooray aye
That's the look, that's the look
Yippie aiy yippee yaye
That's the look, that's the look
Be lucky in love
Look of love

    General CommentYes, it's about singer Martin Fry's quest for the right partner. I thought that he was saying, Marty, instead of Martin

    General CommentMy kid thinks the chorus is singing;"Pass the milk,pass the milk".And I can't say that I do not sing that now too.

    General CommentI cant beleive no one has posted. Anyway....
    I think that this song is about finding the right person for you.
    Who got the look
    I don't know the answer to that question
    Where's the look
    If I knew I would tell you
    What's the look
    Look for your information
    Yes there's one thing, the one thing that still holds true
    What's that
    he cant tell what the look of love is because its different for everyone.

    If you judge a book by the cover
    Then you judge the look by the lover
    I hope you'll soon recover
    Me I go from one extreme to another

    that says it all! ^_^

    General CommentOff of my favorite college album (followed by Stray Cat's first album, The Clash's first album, and Thriller). Just heard this song today on my drive back into town. It's wonderful, but definitely has that 80's new wave-ish sound. Just a song about looking for love and how it can come in strange places and with strange people:)

    General CommentI love this song. It's a classic 80's arrangement that reminds me of "Don't You Want Me Baby". Great lyrics, too. Although I think the singer has one particular person in mind that he wants that look from. He says, "It takes a lot to love you" as if he's talking about a difficult relationship partner. That's just my take.
