"Warm Love" is a hit song written by Northern Irish singer-songwriter Van Morrison.

The song was included on his 1973 album Hard Nose the Highway. It was a Top Forty single hit when released in April 1973.[1] Jackie De Shannon sang back-up vocals.


ZigZag's review called it "a second cousin to 'Crazy Love' and almost as good."[1] It was a popular concert performance tune for Morrison during the seventies.

Stephen Holden in his Rolling Stone review of the Hard Nose the Highway songs said, "Next is the ingratiatingly melodic 'Warm Love', which embodies in all its details a sensuous appreciation of life and music."[2]

Van Morrison said:

"It is just a boy and girl song, walking on the beach. It's a young song. I can't really add to that, except to note that this is a musical love affair, with the girl bringing her guitar."[3]

Other releases

"Warm Love" was one of the songs included on Morrison's 1974 acclaimed live album, It's Too Late To Stop Now.
