Live versions[edit]

With original lead vocalist Joseph Williams having left the group not long after the song's recording, lead vocal duties on the song were passed on to Tony Spinner in 2002. Before that many touring members had sung the song on Toto's live concerts. [4] For their live album, Falling in Between Live and final concerts, Toto performed a semi jazz version of the song. In 2010 when Toto reunited for the Mike Porcaro honor Tour, Joseph Williams was a part of the band again. The song has been played at many live concerts since then. In 2014 Toto released a live album, 35th anniversary tour. Stop Loving you was among the songs on the album. This live version is featuring new keyboard work from Steve Porcaro in the solo part of the song.
