"Love Changes (Everything)" is a 1987 single by British pop duo Climie Fisher, which gained international success in its re-release in 1988. The song was later covered and released by house music duo, Musikk.

Songwriters Climie, Morgan and Fisher received the 1988 Ivor Novello award for Best Song Musically and Lyrically.[1]

Original version[edit]

Climie Fisher wrote the song thinking that Rod Stewart could sing it, but Stewart turned it down and they released the song in 1987.[2] Initially it received poor sales and airplay, reaching #67 in the UK and #30 in The Netherlands. After the success of the hip-hop version of "Rise to the Occasion", the song was re-released with a slight remix by Bob Clearmountain in 1988 and reached #2 in the UK. It was kept off the top spot by the Pet Shop Boys song "Heart".[3]

"Love Changes (Everything)" also reached #2 in South Africa, #7 in Germany, #8 in Switzerland, #15 in Austria, #23 in Australia, #23 in the US Hot 100 and #16 on the U.S. Dance Music/Club Play Singles and #12 on the Adult Contemporary chart.

Allmusic journalist Michael Sutton described Climie Fisher's version of the song as having "a chorus that adheres to the brain like glue. In limited doses it's as tasty as a chocolate sundae."[4]
