"Cheap Love" is a song written and recorded by Del Shannon for his 1983 album Drop Down and Get Me. The song was later recorded by country singer Juice Newton for her 1985 album Old Flame.
By 1985, Newton's stardom as a country pop singer had waned and her 1985 album, Old Flame, took her in an emphatically country music direction with great success as its first two singles, "You Make Me Want to Make You Mine" and "Hurt", both reached of which topped the BillboardHot Country Singles chart. After a third single release, "Old Flame", reached number five on the same chart, RCA elected to release "Cheap Love" as a fourth single from the album in August 1986. The single peaked at number nine on the Billboard Hot Country Singles chart.
"Cheap Love" was later covered by Marty Stuart, under the name "Sweet Love", for his 1996 album Honky Tonkin's What I Do Best. Stuart's version was released as the final single from the album in August 1997.
