On 26 January, 1980, “She’s in Love With You” by Suzi Quatro peaked at #41.
There isn’t much I can say about “She’s in Love With You“; it’s a pretty straightforward power pop song that Suzi Quatro delivers well… she’s a decent rocker and a decent singer, not so polished as to sound fake but polished enough that she’s listenable. The lyrics take a sidestep from the traditional love song. You see, this one is told from the point of view of the girl’s friend. Lyrics that would sound pathetic and demeaning sung in the first person are an earnest, friendly warning when sung in the third person. Beyond that, there’s not all that much here to surprise or amaze. I’m pleasantly surprised, but not excited by it. Perhaps the most surprising thing is that “She’s in Love With You” nearly cracked the top 40. Whatever, it’s a nice song to hear once or twice, but it’s not particularly memorable.
