Any song that starts with these two lines is destined to be a classic:

I am not in love
But I’m open to persuasion

Love & Affection was released in 1976, click here to visit the Wikipedia page.

In my opinion Joan Armatrading is one the most under-rated artists of all time. She’s had hits but she’s a long way from being a household name. Love & Affection is quite simply a beautiful song from the superb album Joan Armatrading. If you haven’t heard the whole album do yourself a favour and give it a listen, or 100 listens, you won’t regret it.

Meanwhile, just sit back and listen to genius at work.
