"Is This Love" is a power ballad by Whitesnake from their self-titled album released in 1987. Written by lead singer David Coverdale and guitarist John Sykes, the song was rumored to have been originally intended for Tina Turner. It was recently listed 87th on VH1's 100 Greatest Love Songs and 10th on their list of Greatest Power Ballads. The song became one of the biggest hits in 1987, and it further defined Whitesnake as one of the premiere rock groups of the 1980s. It reached number 9 in the UK Singles Chart and number 2 in the US singles chart, making it their second-biggest US hit after Here I Go Again which hit number 1. This is a rare occurrence of the original heavier track charted higher than the power ballad. The single was reissued in 1994 on cd and cassette, with the songs "Sweet Lady Luck" and "Now You're Gone" as b-sides. This version reached No.25 on the UK Singles Chart. The music video featured David Coverdale's future wife Tawny Kitaen, who had appeared in the band's earlier video for "Here I Go Again". The Audio Thieves featuring Uniting Nations covered this song in their 2006 album Dance Cover. Also in 2006 Thomas Anders covered the song for his album Songs Forever.

Is This Love - Whitesnake

(Coverdale/Sykes)

I should have known better
Than to let you go alone,
It's times like these
I can't make it on my own
Wasted days, and sleepless nights
And I can't wait to see you again

I find I spend my time
Waiting on your call,
How can I tell you, baby
My back's against the wall
I need you by my side
To tell me it's alright,
Cause I don't think I can take anymore

Is this love that I'm feeling,
Is this the love, that I've been searching for
Is this love or am I dreaming,
This must be love,
Cause it's really got a hold on me,
A hold on me...

I can't stop the feeling
I've been this way before
But, with you I've found the key
To open any door
I can feel my love for you
Growing stronger day by day,
An' I can't wait to see you again
So I can hold you in my arms

Is this love that I'm feeling,
Is this the love, that I've been searching for
Is this love or am I dreaming,
This must be love,
Cause it's really got a hold on me,
A hold on me...

Is this love that I'm feeling,
Is this the love, that I've been searching for...
Is this love or am I dreaming,
Is this the love, that I've been searching for...
