Welcome to Music Friday when we bring you fun songs with jewelry, gemstones or precious metals in the title or lyrics. Today we have country music trio Lady Antebellum singing “Love’s Lookin’ Good on You” from their 2008 chart-topping self-titled album.
The premise of the song is that a woman in love undergoes a beautiful and undeniable transformation. She beams with confidence, her eyes are twice as bright and she looks like a million bucks.
Lady Antebellum sings, “How your sweet smile has a way of / Lighting up the room / Yeah you shine like diamonds / In everything you do / Oh love, love, love is looking good/ Good, good on you.”
“Love’s Lookin’ Good on You” is the sixth track on the group’s inaugural album Lady Antebellum, which released in April of 2008 and made its debut at #1 on the Billboard Top Country Albums chart. It was also a crossover success, as it reached #4 on the Billboard Top 200 albums chart.
The multi-Grammy-award-winning Lady Antebellum is composed of the multitalented trio of Hillary Scott (lead and background vocals), Charles Kelley (lead and background vocals, guitar) and Dave Haywood (background vocals, guitar, piano, mandolin). The group got its start in Nashville in 2006 and signed with Capitol Records a year later.
Since then, the group has released five albums and 16 singles, nine of which reached #1 on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart.
Lady Antebellum scored Grammys in 2012 for Song of the Year and Record of the Year, and another in 2013 for Best Country Album. The trio is credited with selling more than 12.5 million digital singles and 10 million albums in the U.S.
Check out the awesome 2008 live performance of Lady Antebellum singing “Love’s Lookin’ Good on You.” The studio session was sponsored by radio station 96.9 "The Kat" in Charlotte, N.C. And, as always, the lyrics are below if you’d like to sing along.
"Love's Lookin' Good on You"
Written by Victoria Lynn Shaw, Jason Deere and Matt Lopez. Performed by Lady Antebellum.
Oh baby, baby something's just a little bit different
In your eyes tonight,
Why they look twice as bright.
Oh baby, baby something's changed,
That I can't quite put my finger on,
Well I've been racking my brain,
Wait just a minute,
Well hold on now,
Well I'll get it.
Love, love, love is looking good,
Good, good on you,
Can you feel it
Oh everybody sees it.
How your sweet smile has a way of,
Lighting up the room,
Yeah you shine like diamonds,
In everything you do.
Oh love, love, love is looking good,
Good, good on you.
Oh baby, baby,
Isn't it funny,
How we don't need any money,
Just a little love to look like a million bucks
Oh baby, baby,
Kinda makes you think that the stars were in sync on the night we met.
There'll probably be a red carpet everywhere you go,
Throw it on out hey don't you know.
I knew right away from the very first kiss,
That it just doesn't get much better than this.
We fit just like a favorite pair of jeans.
We just keep coming back for more,
Like two kids in a candy store.
And now I know what everybody means when they say.
I'm telling you mighty, mighty good babe.
Love, love, love is looking,
Good, good, good on you,
Love is looking good on you.
Love, love, love is looking
Good, good, good on you
