"There Is No Love Between Us Anymore" is a song by Pop Will Eat Itself released on 7" and 12" vinyl in 1988, as the second single from the 1987 album Box Frenzy. A 8-track CD version featuring a small collection of non-album tracks was later released in 1991. It is a mainly instrumental track, with the only non-sampled lyrics being the title of the song. It samples the songs "When I Fall In Love" by Nat King Cole, and "You've Lost That Loving Feeling" by The Righteous Brothers on 12" version. A sample of a woman saying the words "loves me, loves me not" is particularly prominent throughout the song, and these lyrics are revisited in 1989 in the song "Wise Up! Sucker", except sung by Clint Mansell this time.

The versions found on the single are all different to the one appearing on the album. The album version is most similar to the 7" version, which also appears on the CD single, with the only difference being an added intro sampling Nat King's "When I Fall In Love". The Specially Extended Dance Mix is remixed by UK producer Robert Gordon, who worked closely with the band for a large portion of their career. The b-side, "Picnic In The Sky", is a rework of a song originally composed in 1986 in the style distinctive of the band's other music of that era. "Hit The Hi-Tech Groove", the b-side on the remix 12", appears in the same version on Box Frenzy. "...On The Razor's Edge..." is a remix of the album track "Grebo Guru", and "Kiss That Girl" is exclusive to the "There Is No Love Between Us Anymore" single (although it later appeared on Box Frenzy reissues).

"There Is No Love Between Us Anymore" showed a marked increase in sales for the band, with the single reaching 66 on the UK singles chart.[1] A music video was recorded featuring shots of a couple's relationship, with only very brief views of the band, consisting of extreme close-ups from several angles. It appears on the video album Unspoilt By Progress, along with a snippet of the band performing the song live while Graham Crabb was still playing drums for the group.
