Moments in Love – by The Art of Noise 

This entry is part 10 of 10 in the series Valentine's Day Playlist

Goodness, where to start with Moments in Love.

To understand this, you have to be aware of something in the Eighties and Nineties called The Quiet Storm. On Thursdays or Friday nights, around 10pm or so, popular radio stations would play slow jams or love songs throughout most of the late night. Classics like the legendary “Always and Forever” by Heatwave or Janet Jackson’s “Come Back to Me”, were examples. Just about any ballad that Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis worked on would usually be there, but Moments of Love was one of the first electronic love songs to play on some of those stations.

There are a number of different versions of Moments in Love. I believe this is the original. It became something of a definitive song for the Quiet Storm. Not overplayed to the point of annoyance, but whenever it came on, people would stop and listen.
