‘Love Hurts’ – Nazareth

NEXT

You must have heard this song in many commercials, TV shows, and films in the past. The lyrics are very honest, which explains its popularity. The track is passionate, raw, and jaded all at the same time. You can just tell that the singer knew what it was like to be in love. Dan McCafferty lent the rock song gritty vocals, although there are folks who think that his stage presence was not all that. Perhaps this is the reason Nazareth failed to make another hit song after “Love Hurts” reached the top of the charts.
