"Love Will Find a Way" is a song by the progressive rock band Yes, from their 1987 album Big Generator. It was released as the first single from that album, reaching number 30 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in late 1987.[1] It also topped the U.S. Mainstream Rock chart, holding onto the number one spot for three weeks.[1]

History[edit]

Yes guitarist and singer Trevor Rabin originally wrote the song for singer Stevie Nicks to perform;[2] however, Yes drummer Alan White encouraged Rabin to let Yes record the song instead, which they did.

"Love Will Find a Way" was the fifth of six Yes singles to crack the U.S. Top 40;[1] it has been featured on several of Yes' later compilations, including the box sets Yesyears and In a Word: Yes (1969–). A video for the song is also included on Yes' Greatest Video Hits.

Alternative versions[edit]

In 2003, Trevor Rabin released a pair of albums, each of which featured a different version of "Love Will Find a Way": Live in LA features a 1989 live performance of the song, and 90124 features an early demo of the song in which Rabin sings all the vocals and plays all of the instruments.[3]
