Performed occasionally in shows:


For Love is the sixth track on Jill Jones's first and only Paisley Park Records album Jill Jones, and, roughly four months after the album's release, For Love was released as the album's third and final single. Although Jill Jones was credited as a co-writer, the song was written solely by Prince.

Basic tracking took place on 30 May 1985 at Sunset Sound in Hollywood, California (the day after Drawers (later released as Little Rock), Killin' At The Soda Shop, Married Man and Zebra With The Blonde Hair, three days before Living Doll).

A jam version of the song was also part of the "Everybody's Jam" played at Sunset Sound in Hollywood, California on 5 January 1986

Around the time of the For Love single release, Prince and Jill Jones recorded what could be considered a companion track, 4 Lust, for her planned second album, but the album was never finished and the track remains unreleased.
