About In the Name of Love

"In the Name of Love" is a 1982 single written and performed by The Thompson Twins, at the time a septet (Tom Bailey, Alannah Currie, Joe Leeway, John Roog, Chris Bell, Peter Dodd, and Matthew Seligman). It was the first of twelve entries on the Billboard dance chart for the group, and the first entry for the band in the lower reaches of the US and UK pop charts (peaking outside the UK top 75, and "bubbling under" the hot 100 on the US charts.) "In the Name of Love" went to number one on the dance music chart and stayed there for five weeks, and spent a total of twenty-one weeks on the chart. It peaked at number sixty-nine on the Billboard R&B chart. The song has been featured in the films Ghostbusters and Edge of Seventeen. The track was newly remixed in 1988 by Shep Pettibone and included as "In The Name Of Love '88" on the Greatest Mixes album. The single peaked at #46 in the UK, spending 3 weeks on the chart. The single fared better in America, where it peaked at #1 on the US Billboard Dance/Club Play chart.

Hey you,
I've seen your face before
It's you in the picture which hangs on my bedroom wall
Is it true? All of those things that they say about you
So tell me, tell me, tell me what am I supposed to do 

In the name of love, yeah

In the name of love 

Well it's fun to think that I'm having the time of my life
And it's true if all this around us is paradise, paradise, paradise, paradise
But now I want to be left here with nothing at all
Even the picture has fallen away from the bedroom wall
