The Eagles’ Hit Version
Paul Carrack wrote this song along with Jim Capaldi (ex Traffic), and Peter Vale. It was originally intended for a band that Carrack, Timothy B. Schmidt, and Don Felder were organizing. The project never came to fruition. When the Eagles reunited for their “Hell Freezes Over” album and tour, the band performed and recorded “Love Will Keep Us Alive.” While the song was never released as a single in the U.S., it received considerable adult contemporary airplay where it charted at #1. The song never charted on Billboard’s Hot 100.
