Love Is No Game is a single released by Shirley Bassey in 1988. Composed by Pino Marchese, Charles McLoughlin who later worked together on the film soundtrack of the French movie Parole de Flic,[1] the same team had previously provided the 1983 European hit "Thought I'd Ring You" (duet with Alain Delon),[2] which charted at #13 in the Dutch charts. The song is a remix of a song that was previously released in 1984, then known as "That's Right", the single was released in the wake of the recent hit single "The Rhythm Divine" a collaboration with the electro-pop group Yello, which revived Bassey's career and chart success in otherwise a rather barren period in her recording career and introduced her to a whole new generation. The song has never been included on a Shirley Bassey album or compilation, the 7" single release features. on the b-side, the original Shirley Bassey recording of "Memory", 'from the musical Cats recorded in 1984. She went on to re-record the song in 1993 for the album Sings the Songs of Andrew Lloyd Webber. Shirley Bassey did not promote this single and no video was released, the single was only released in the Netherlands, Belgium and Germany[3] where it failed to chart.
