Love Song is the third track on Madonna’s fourth album Like A Prayer. The track was co-written, co-performed and co-produced by Prince.

Basic tracking took place on 13 March 1988, at Paisley Park Studios in Chanhassen, Minnesota.

The project was initially titled Daisy Miller to disguise the artists working on the track (there was a lot of media speculation about Prince and Madonna working together and possibly being linked romantically).

Madonna and her musicians worked on the track later in 1988 (between late September and early November), and Prince added additional overdubs in mid-November 1988 at Paisley Park.
