"Love Your Body" is a song by French singer Amanda Lear released in 1983 by Ariola Records.

Song information[edit]

"Love Your Body" was the third non-album single released by Amanda Lear. It was written by Peter Lüdermann, Alf Schwegeler and Amanda Lear. The track displayed a hi-NRG synthpop sound and lyrically referred to the aerobics craze of the early 1980s. That was one of Amanda's five singles of Ariola-days without Anthony Monn contributing production credits. It was also her last single recorded in Munich and released by German division of Ariola Records.[1] The B-side of the single was "Darkness and Light", another non-album song. Despite Lear promoting both tracks on Italian and German television, the single failed to chart there but peaked at 29 in Belgium.

Music video[edit]

The music video for the track was directed by Valerio Lazarov. It pictures Amanda in a tribal outfit performing aerobic routines with the 2 male dancers. The clip was shot on the chroma key technique.
