"Love and Understanding" is a rock song by American singer-actress Cher from her 20th studio album, Love Hurts. Written by Diane Warren, produced by Warren & Guy Roche, it was released as the album's lead single in 1991 for the European and North American market. The B-Side "Trail Of Broken Hearts" appears on the soundtrack to the Tom Cruise film Days of Thunder and is not available on any Cher album.
Allmusic's Joseph McCombs highlighted the song and called it "pleasantly melodic." Entertainment Weekly editor Jim Farber called it "socially conscious in a way only Hollywood could conceive, tailor-made for one of those publicity-seeking charity functions."
