"Do You Believe in Love" is the first top-ten hit for the American rock band Huey Lewis and the News, peaking at number seven in May 1982, off their second album Picture This. It was written by Robert John "Mutt" Lange.

History

When Lange wrote the song and submitted it to the band, it was entitled "We Both Believe In Love", but was retitled after Lewis made revisions. The unrevised version was originally recorded by British band Supercharge, on which Lange sang lead vocals, on the 1979 album Body Rhythm.

The song became the band's breakthrough hit, peaking at number seven on the Billboard Hot 100 pop singles chart.[1]

A music video for the song features the band singing into a sleeping woman's ear, followed by the next morning, singing in the kitchen. This video received heavy airplay in the early days of MTV, contributing to the breakthrough popularity of both the song and the band.

In the UK the song was released as a double A side with The Power of Love in 1985.[2]
