"Is This Love"
The song is taken from their self-titled album, which released in 1987.
The song was written by vocalist David Coverdale and guitarist John Sykes during the albums early writing process (which took place in the south of France), but it was long rumoured that the song had originally been written for pop artist Tina Turner. Coverdale confirmed these rumours in the booklet of Whitesnake's 20th anniversary edition, by saying:
"Before I'd left for the south of France a friend at EMI had asked me for any ideas that would work for Tina Turner. So that was where the original idea for 'Is This Love' came from."
"Is This Love" became one of the most popular Whitesnake songs. The song reached #87 on VH1's "100 Greatest Love Songs"-list and #10 on their list of "Greatest Power Ballads". -Wikipedia.com
My Thoughts: One of my favs from them, It's a classic for me...This song is great to listen to when you want to relive the memories of when Mtv actually played rock videos, It's a very powerful ballad that stands the test of time. And of course It featured David Coverdale's hot Girlfriend who was every young man's and maybe a couple ladies fantasy rock chick actress/model and Coverdale girlfriend Tawny Kitaen~
