"Love Is a Beautiful Thing" is a song written by Seth Swirsky and recorded by Al Green for his 1993 album Don't Look Back. It was released as a single that same year, and was later released on his 1995 album Your Heart's in Good Hands; it also appears on his 2002 L-O-V-E: The Essential Al Green greatest hits collection. It was Green's last charted single (#56 in the UK).
Through his own ad libs during the song, Al Green acknowledges that "Love Is a Beautiful Thing" summed him up the most: nine seconds into the song Green says "This is what I believe." Then, near the end (at 4 minutes and 43 seconds), over the music he sings the titles of six of his own biggest hit songs: "Let's Stay Together" (which he sings twice), "I'm Still in Love with You", "Call Me", "For the Good Times", "Tired of Being Alone" and "Here I Am".
