"Love Touch" is a song performed by Rod Stewart. The song was written by Holly Knight and Mike Chapman (The Best and Love Is A Battlefield). It was released as a single in 1986 and peaked at number six on the Billboard Hot 100. The song was featured in the Robert Redford romantic comedy, Legal Eagles, where it is played over the end credits. It was often subtitled "Theme from Legal Eagles." It also appears on Stewart's album, Every Beat of My Heart. The song is a plea from someone who has been fighting with his lover, but is apologizing and asking for another chance to "be good".

Although it is among Stewart's most successful songs, he rarely performs Love Touch in concert. Stewart holds a low opinion of the song's lyrics, calling it "one of the silliest songs I've ever recorded," in the liner notes of Encore: The Very Best of Rod Stewart Volume 2.
