"(Can't Live Without Your) Love and Affection" is a 1990 Billboard Hot 100 #1 hit single by Nelson. It was released in 1990 on Geffen Records and backed with "Will You Love Me". The song was based on a crush on Cindy Crawford. The music video features model and actress Judie Aronson who first appears on the cover of a magazine called "Vague", a play on Vogue. The song itself is known for its technical drumming involving syncopation and double bass, and virtuoso guitar soloing.
The production on the single and its B-side, "Will You Love Me", was done by David Thoener and Marc Tanner. It also appears as the first track on Nelson's album, After the Rain. American boyband Natural covered the song for their 2002 album Keep It Natural.
