"Cold Love" is the second single from the Donna Summer album The Wanderer. It was a modest Pop hit, peaking at #33 in the US Pop Singles chart,[1] However, it did receive a Grammy nomination for Best Female Rock Vocal Performance.

Vocally, this song contrasts with the just previous "The Wanderer" single release - it is very reminiscent of her 1979 "Hot Stuff" - power belt and hard rock approach. This style was currently in vogue in the early 80's and used by female vocalists in groups like Heart and in Pat Benatar's "Hit Me with Your Best Shot".
