|Rod Stewart singles chronology|
"Love Touch" is a song performed by Rod Stewart and written by Holly Knight and Mike Chapman. It was released as a single in 1986 and peaked at #6 on the Billboard Hot 100. The song was featured in the end credits of the Robert Redford romantic comedy, Legal Eagles, hence it's often listed with the subtitle "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.
