"Tren de Amor" (Spanish for "Train of Love") is a song by American singer Jermaine Stewart, released in 1989 as the lead single from his album What Becomes a Legend Most. It was written by Stewart, Ian Curnow and Phil Harding, and produced by Curnow and Harding.

"Tren de Amor" managed to enter the UK top 100, reaching #97, and stayed on the chart for three weeks.[1] The song was also used in the soundtrack for the 1989 film She-Devil,[2] which starred Meryl Streep, Roseanne Barr and Ed Begley, Jr.[3]

A promotional video was filmed for the single, while Stewart also performed the song on the German TV show "Peters Pop Show", as well as the show "Eurotops", where he wore the same outfit and hairstyle as in the single's artwork photography.

The B-Side "When Sex Becomes a Religion" was exclusive to the single, written by Stewart, Arnold Hennings and Vince Lawrence.[4]

A limited edition 7" vinyl single was released which included an exclusive poster bag.[5] For the single, various remixes of "Tren de Amor" were included along with the CD single track "Got To Be Love (The Cymone Mix)" which is a remix of a track from Stewart's 1987 album Say It Again.
