Now That's What I Call Stuart's Favourite Music 1 - What Is Love (Howard Jones)

Note - This post was originally written in 2011 and re-edited in 2021)

A friend of mine, (Dan English) did something similar every Monday many, many years ago... Well.... Some Mondays at least (remember Musical Mondays?), so I am going to start too - I will be posting videos to songs that mean something to me.... 

Songs I love...  Songs I grew up with...  Songs that have got me through good times, and bad times.

Why am I doing this? 

The project began back in 2011 as a way to collect my favourite childhood tunes and put them in one place to share with my family and friends on my blog.

At first, I limited my list to only include music from my childhood and later teenage years, but as I get older with each passing year, I've decided that I should also include a selection from more recent times too.  Just don't expect too many of them...  I'm a child of the 70s and 80s after all.  

The other reason for doing this is because I can remind people just how great 80s music really is (compared to the chod that is in the charts today).

Anyway....... Let us begin with.......

Now That's What I Call Music 1:- Howard Jones - What Is Love

Released back in 1983 and taken from Howard's debut album, Human's Lib, it reached Number 2 in the UK Singles Charts.

I have fond memories of this song - partly because my sister was a big fan of 'HoJo' and always played his music (I could always hear it through the thin wall that separated our bedrooms - I'd be busy playing games on my Commodore 64 and she'd be blaring the likes of Howard Jones and Nik Kershaw!). I wasn't really interested in it when I was young, but as I grew up and appreciated 80s music more, this one always stands out as a classic 80s track and one of my all time favourites.
