“Love On Your Side” is a 1983 song by the British pop group Thompson Twins. It was released as the second single from the band’s third studio album, Quick Step and Side Kick, which was renamed Side Kicks in the U.S. (1983).
In 1982, after the commercial failure of their second album Set, the Thompson Twins collaborated with producer Alex Sadkin to record Quick Step and Side Kick. Sadkin produced the album including “Love On Your Side”.
The original lyrics were written by Alannah Currie, but was later altered to that of a male perspective, as Currie wasn’t the lead singer.
It was the band’s first top ten hit, reaching no. 9 in the UK, as well as no. 45 in the US.
