The demo and the final version, both are great.

I love '90s house, so I have no reason to not love this :lol:

A very powerful song.

YES.

Still need to get used to the altered sound after the chorus. But it's out of question that it is, in any way, AMAZING.

Living For Love > This planet!!!

Sorry I can't. "Living for laaaarrrrrrrvve" It's all I hear and I find it irritating. It's the only one of the 6 I don't like.

Yes I know! I'm a terrible fan! I don't know what I'm talking about.

I like this song but I repeat I don't think that it could be a strong first single. For sure is her best first single since the last 5 years :)

First you love me and I let you in
Made me feel like I was born again
You empowered me, you made me strong
Built me up and I can do no wrong
I let down my guard, I fell into your arms
Forgot who I was, I didn't hear the alarms
Now I'm down on my knees, alone in the dark
I was blind to your game
You fired a shot in my heart

Took me to heaven and let me fall down
Now that it's over
I'm gonna carry on
Lifted me up, and watched me stumble
After the heartache, I'm gonna carry on
Living for love
Living for love
I'm not giving up
I'm gonna carry on
Living for love
I'm Living for love
Not gonna stop
Love's gonna lift me up

Love's gonna lift me up

I could get caught up in bitterness
But I'm not dwelling on this crazy mess
I found freedom in the ugly truth
I deserve the best and it's not you
I picked up my pound, put it back in my head
I can forgive, but I will never forget

Took me to heaven and let me fall down
Now that it's over
I'm gonna carry on
Lifted me up, and watched me stumble
After the heartache, I'm gonna carry on
Living for love
Living for love
I'm not giving up
I'm gonna carry on
Living for love
I'm Living for love
Not gonna stop
Love's gonna lift me up

Love's gonna lift me up

Love, love lift me
Love, love lift me
God forgive me
I'm gonna carry on
Love, love lift me
Love, love lift me
God forgive me
Love's gonna lift me up
Love, love lift me
Love, love lift me
God forgive me
Love's gonna lift me up
Up, up, up
Don't leave me out, out, out
Love's gonna lift me up

Living for love
Living for love
I'm not giving up
I'm gonna carry on
Living for love
I'm Living for love
Not gonna stop
Love's gonna lift me up

Come on, come on, come on
I need you to
Lift me up up up
Come on
Lift me up lord

I dont like it very much. I feel it like outdated and very mainstream. Although the voice is great I would have picked up Devil as first single.

Well... thats usually the point of a lead single lol

It's definitely an "anthem" song, but it's not strong enough to be a hit. The melody is not gonna get people hooked on it.

No it's not. Frozen, Music and Hung Up were huge number one songs - and they were not mainstream for their time at all.

She should have the balls to release REBEL HEART as the lead single or JOAN OF ARC. Enough of playing safe... she has to make a statement!

Agreed:) She went the "safe" way with Give me all your Love and that went nowhere.

At the end of the day, getting a hit will never be easy. As long as the songs read well for a concert (which these do), i'll be happy.

I think the pound listed in the lyrics above might actually be crown.

great lyrics and great song (even if something is missing from a first listening, don't know what)

It hasn't been confirmed Living For Love is the first single though. The lead single was supposed to be released on Feb 14th. And now we know that new music will be released on Feb 9th and that is likely to be the real first single according to the original schedule.

I wonder if anyone else thinks the melody of LFL is identical to Nothing Fails? I can sing it on top of it. And both have gospelly choirs

Did anyone else notice the very last seconds of the song are cut off at the end? It ends abruptly and jumps right to Devil Pray. Hope they fix that.

Other than that, I've listened to this final version a couple of times now and can OFFICIALLY confirm it is just as good as the demo. Which means it is a song of LIFE!!!

But in the UK iTunes LFL is scheduled separately for this Monday and it says it's a single.
