WATCH: Nazareth – “Love Hurts” 1975

“Love Hurts” by Nazareth was somewhat of an anthem for those of us who grew up in the 70’s. A great slow song to dance to, but painful lyrics to listen to, a great combo for raging teen angst. Here’s more about the song from Wikipedia:

The song was introduced in December 1960 as an album track on A Date with The Everly Brothers, but was never released as a single (A-side or B-side) by the Everlys.  The most successful recording of the song was by hard rock band Nazareth, who took the song to the U.S. Top 10 in 1975 and hit number one in Norway and the Netherlands. In the UK the most successful version of the song was by former Traffic member Jim Capaldi, who took it to number four in the charts in November 1975 during an 11-week run. The song was also covered by Cher in 1975 for her album Stars. Cher re-recorded the song in 1991 for her album of the same name. Joan Jett included a version of the song on her 1990 album, The Hit List, a covers compilation.
