about

Is It Love. I have three studio versions of this song, the first one was recorded at Blue Wave studios while I was a member of K.T. Rouge and the third version was recorded at Mushroom Studios. This second take, recorded at Inside Trak studios has always been my fave. The demo that secured us a FACTOR grant. There are countless live board tapes of this one as well. Having survived after K.T. Rouge was no longer. Dizzy had heard it many times, having joined K.T. Rouge before we disbanded. Thanks to he and Richard Kowalk, K.T’s former manager, this song managed to see the light of day once again. The old resurrection shuffle. Such a sweet thing … xoRJ

lyrics

She worked late at the office
So she had a hard day
At night she would moonlight
Havin’ no fun
Just tucking her money away

She’d dream of excitement
After paying the rent
So she’d go to the bank
And she’d take out some money
But somehow it never got spent

Is it love
That holds it together
Is it love
That softens her heart
Is it love - I gotta know
When you turn out the light and whisper goodnight
Is it love

Her future is changing
Her skies are not sordid and grey
At night she still moonlights
She’s havin’ no fun
But she’s tucking her money away

I feel kinda’ special…
When she brings me my coffee for free
‘Cause I work at the bank
And she works at the restaurant
At midnight she’s waiting for me

Is it love
That holds it together
Is it love
That softens her heart
Is it love - I gotta know
When you turn out the light and whisper goodnight
Is it love

Is it love -

Is it love
That holds it together
Is it love
That softens her heart

Is it love
That holds it together
Is it love
That softens her heart

Is it love - Aah is it love
Oh Is it love - Aah is it love
Must be love ..

We didn't get to test drive "Friday Night" the way we wanted to. Mr./Ms. Universe stepped in. 2020's Covid Cutie. And our upcoming seventh release "Piece Of Your Ghost" has been delayed. Expect it in mid to late February of 2021. I'll see what I can do about a single release. Something in mind ... hmmm ... xoRJ ... more
