Labi Siffre wrote "It Must Be Love" but his version is absent from the Shadow, today

I always say ‘two versions of a song’ an 98% of the time, the original is one of the two we play, but not today. Carla of ‘Tosa suggested “It Must Be Love” which was a hit for Labi Siffre in the UK in 1971, then ten years later, a hit for British band Madness and then was recently done by Paolo Nutini. The latter two versions are the ones we’ll play today.

“It Must Be Love” – Madness version

And Paolo Nutini’s version.
