It must be love - Madness

When Madness released 'It must be love', I preferred the B-side, 'Mrs. Hutchinson' to the A-side. For some reason the radio stations played that track quite often, too, so the single was treated like a double A-side. 'It must be love' was a cover of the song by Labi Siffre. The tracks were taken from Madness's third album '7', which marked a departure from their original ska sound.

The single didn't chart in the Netherlands, but it was one of their biggest hits in the UK, reaching number 4 in the singles chart.
