"Love Come Down" is a hit single by Evelyn King. It was produced by Morrie Brown and written by Kashif. "Love Come Down" was the first single culled from her multi-platinum, number-one R&B album, Get Loose (which charted at #27 on the Billboard 200). In the U.S., it reached number one on the R&B and dance charts and number seventeen on the Billboard Hot 100. It cracked the top 20 on the charts in several other countries.

A reggae version of the song by Jamaican singer Barry Biggs hit the top 5 in The Netherlands in 1983. The song was a UK Top 40 hit in 1994 when covered by British singer Alison Limerick. In 2013, The Saturdays released a cover of the song as a b-side to single Disco Love. In 2014, Liam Keegan is due to release a version of Love Come Down featuring vocalist Julia Schlippert.[1][2]

In 2014, "Love Come Down" has been placed on Bruce Pollock's list of The 7,500 Most Important Songs of 1944-2000.[3]
