"Everlasting Love" is the title of a popular song originally written and recorded by the British singer-songwriter Howard Jones.

Released as the first single from Jones' 1989 album Cross That Line, "Everlasting Love" reached #12 in the United States on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in the early summer of that year,[1] and also peaked at #19 on the Modern Rock Tracks chart,[2] the first of only two singles to appear there. It also spent two weeks at #1 on the US adult contemporary chart, the singer's second chart-topper on this tally (following "No One Is to Blame" from 1986).[3] In his native UK, where Jones had enjoyed numerous pop hits, "Everlasting Love" failed to have as much of an impact as earlier singles, and it stalled at #62 on the UK Singles Chart.[4] The song was co-produced by ex-Tears for Fears band member Ian Stanley.

This was the first of Howard Jones' singles to be released on CD.
