Music Monday # 18: I Don’t Know Why I Love You – House of Love

I have a playlist on my iPod called "Indie Faves" and I put it on when I'm feeling slightly uninspired. I always know that some of my favourite indie alternative songs from the past 30 years will come up and I certainly wasn’t disappointed this week. 

This song came off House of Love’s epic 1990 self-titled album The House of Love.  It is pretty much an anthem and I certainly sang it with great feeling many times in the past.  I’m happy to say that I got over all of my college romances and I know quite well why it is that I love my dear husband.

House of Love - “I Don’t Know Why I Love You”
The House of Love (1990)

I don't know why I love you
Your face is a hammer in my head
I remember every word you said
I just don't know why I love you


I don't know why I care
I never even liked your hair
I feel like a cell in air
But I don't know why I love you

Television turns me on
When the summer's hot
And the spirit's long
So how can I get close to you
When you got no mercy
No, you got no mercy
No you got no...

I don't know why I love you
Your face is a foreign food
I really don't know if I should
I just don't know why I love you

I don't know why I care
I duck and I weave and I fight
I work just to treat you right
God, I don't know why I love you

Rock, rock, rock

I don't know why I love you
It might be your soul or your heart
Maybe it's the way that you speak
I don't why I love you


Television turns me on
When the summer's hot
And the spirit's long
So, how can I get close to you
When you got no mercy
No, you got mercy
No you got no...


I don't know why I love you
I don't know why I care
I don't know why I love you
I don't know why I love you
I don't know why I love you
I don't know why I love you
And I don't know why I care

These are the correct lyrics taken from the album sleeve.
