“Love Hurts” is the name of a song, written and composed by Boudleaux Bryant and Felice Bryant. First recorded by The Everly Brothers in July 1960, as an album track on “A Date with The Everly Brothers”.

The first hit version of the song was by Roy Orbison, who earned Australian radio play, hitting the Top Five of that country’s singles charts in 1961. The most successful recording of the song was by hard rock band Nazareth, who took the song to the U.S. Top 10 in 1975 and hit number one in Norway and the Netherlands. In the UK the most successful version of the song was by former Traffic member Jim Capaldi, who took it to number four in the charts in November 1975 during a 11-week run. The song was also covered by Cher in 1975 for her album Stars. Cher re-recorded the song in 1991 for her album of the same name. Source: Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

See “Love Hurts” by Nazareth, live in Brazil, on YouTube and see how the vocalist looks like Bilbo Baggins from the Lord of the Rings… Yes, it is a great song but time does not forgive anyone…:

LOVE HURTS
Music and lyrics by Boudleaux Bryant and Felice Bryant

Love hurts,
Love scars,
Love wounds and marks
Any heart not tough or strong enough
To take a lot of pain, take a lot of pain
Love is like a cloud, it holds a lot of rain
Love hurts,
Ooo-oo love hurts

I’m young,
I know,
But even so
I know a thing or two, I learned from you
I really learned a lot, really learned a lot
Love is like a flame It burns you when it’s hot
Love hurts,
Ooo-oo love hurts

Some fools think
Of happiness, blissfulness, togetherness
Some fools fool themselves, I guess
They’re not foolin’ me
I know it isn’t true I know it isn’t true
Love is just a lie made to make you blue
Love hurts,
Ooo-oo love hurts

I know it isn’t true
I know it isn’t true
Love is just a lie made to make you blue
Love hurts,
Ooo-oo love hurts
Ooo-oo, love hurts, Ooo-oo
