"Love Goes Down" is the fifth single from British songwriter and rapper Plan B's second studio album, The Defamation of Strickland Banks. The single was released on December 3, 2010.[1] HiveMag said of the song: "It’s delightfully soulful and gentle, especially in contrast with some of Plan B’s earlier records. It’s a nice wind-down song. It’s peaceful; it’s relaxing and perfect for this time of year. Yes it may be different and maybe we shouldn’t like it, but the vintage sounding, Motown-like track just seems to work. It’s different but I admire artists that experiment with their sound and adapt to new sounds."[2]

Music video[edit]

The music video for "Love Goes Down" was directed by Daniel Wolfe. It features Strickland Banks performing the song on a television programme. The video also uses clips of Banks' day to day life and ends with the television programme cutting the song before it finishes, leaving Banks furious as he knocks the microphone stand to the floor and walks off and is arrested by the police.[3]
