"You Look So Good in Love" is a song written by Glen Ballard, Rory Michael Bourke and Kerry Chater, and recorded by American country singer George Strait. It was released in September 1983 as the lead single from his album Right or Wrong.
The narrator is a guy looking at his ex-lover fall in love with another guy. He realizes just how happy his former girlfriend looks now that she’s fallen in true love. He feels sorry for himself that he wasn’t the one to make her happy, but part of him realizes it wasn’t meant to be.
A video — Strait's first — was issued for the song. Strait disliked the "slow-paced and romantic themed" video so he asked for it to be taken off the air, and refused to do music videos for several years afterward.
The song debuted at number 31 on the Hot Country Songs charts, Strait's highest debut for many years. In January 1984, "You Look So Good in Love" was George Strait's third No. 1 song on the chart.
