Can You Name This 80s Song?

I hope someone can give me the song title and artist. It's been driving me insane...

"L is for the love you give me
O is for the only one
V means you're very special
E is for every time we love..."

(I was thinking maybe the song title is "L-O-V-E" but can't find it anywhere.)

Not sure of the song, but those are quotes from something called the "Love Alphabet".

Well, I thought the song was "L Is For Lover" by Al Jarreau - it was published in 1986 under the album "L Is For Lover". Which music genre does this song belong to? Pop? Rock? Easy Listening? Jazz?

Male vocalist? Female vocalist? Both?

Check Nat King Cole or Natalie Cole for "L-O-V-E" The lyrics are very similar to what you specified.

For a minute there, I was very hopeful. I really thought "L Is for Lover" by Al Jarreau was it. Then I went to Amazon.com and listened to the song sample. It wasn't. :( I haven't listened to Nat King Cole or Natlie Cole's version of the song, because I really don't think that's it--just because of their genre. The song I'm thinking of is definitely 80s pop; it was a good 80s dance song, too. But more pop, for sure. I was very young when this song was popular, so I'm guessing it was early- to mid-80s. And I'm pretty sure it was by one of those artists who were a "one-hit wonder." I could be wrong, but I don't think so. In fact, I'm almost positive that if I heard/saw the name of the group (I just remembered something: It was a band name, not an individual's name), I would definitely recognize it.

*sigh*

Anyone else? I'll pay you if you lead me to the song. lol ;)

Are the lyrics you posted the exact lyrics from the song?
As best as I remember them, yes. I'm pretty sure they are the exact lyrics. And I think I remember another (partial) line after the chorus:

"L is for the love you give me
O is for the only one
V means you're very special
E is for every time we make loooooove

Don't you know that love's not eeeeaaaasy..."

And that's all I remember! :(

Not even close to the song that the OP was asking about, but then the OP got the correct response (L.O.V.E. by Erotic Exotic) nearly 10 years ago.
But good try, eh?
