‘More Love’ by Kim Carnes – Classic Hit or Miss
“More Love” has been covered by several performers — among them Paul Young, Barbara McNair, and Mica Paris. A 1976 version by Teena Marie.
The most successful recording of “More Love” was a 1980 version by Kim Carnes, included on her album Romance Dance. Carnes’s remake of “More Love” peaked at number 10 on the Billboard Hot 100 , and at number six on Billboard’s Adult Contemporary chart. A Spanish language version of the song, “Más Amor”, was also released in some territories in Latin America. The single was the first Top 10 U.S. solo hit for Carnes, formerly of The New Christy Minstrels. Despite “More Love’s” success, the follow-up single, “Cry Like a Baby”, would miss the Top 40, peaking at number 44.
This song would be Carnes’ biggest solo hit until Bette Davis Eyes.
