WATCH: Nick Lowe, “Cruel to Be Kind” – 1978

“Cruel to Be Kind” is a song by Nick Lowe, co-written by Lowe and his former Brinsley Schwarz bandmate Ian Gomm. Written by Lowe and Gomm while the pair were in Brinsley Schwarz, the song was saved on a demo until Columbia Records convinced Lowe to release it.

Here’s a performance from 1978 on Britain’s “Top of the Pops.”
