single art for A Love Bizarre |performer = Sheila E. |first released = 26 August 1985 - Romance 1600 album |album(s) = Romance 1600 |writer(s) = Sheila E. and Prince |producer(s) = Sheila E. and Prince |previous song = A Couple Of Miles |next song = A Man Called Jesus |introduction = A Love Bizarre is the third track on Sheila E.'s second album Romance 1600, and, three months after the album's release, A Love Bizarre was released as the album's second single. While Prince was heavily involved in the album, this is is the only track to be credited as "produced, written and arranged by Sheila E. and Prince" - in fact, while Sheila E. sings on the track and plays percussion, all other vocals and instruments (other than saxophone by Eddie M.) are played by Prince. In 2001, a 1986 live version by Prince and the Revolution from the Parade Tour was included (along with other live tracks from the same show) in the NPG Ahdio Show 4 download from the NPG Music Club.

Basic tracks were recorded by Prince and Sheila E. in the first week of January 1985 at the Cheshire Sound Studios, Atlanta, GA, USA, while in town for five dates on the Purple Rain Tour. The full-length track, at 12:18, was edited into sections for its single release, with the b-side, A Love Bizarre (Part II), simply an additional edited portion of the full-length track. |recording info = |- align="left" |style="border-top:1px dotted #ccc;"|Early January 1985 |style="border-top:1px dotted #ccc;"|Cheshire Sound Studios,
