Whitesnake - Fool For Your Loving

"Fool for Your Loving" is a song recorded by English rock band Whitesnake. Originally released on their 1980 album Ready an' Willing, it was re-recorded for their 1989 album Slip of the Tongue.

The song was Co-written by David Coverdale, Bernie Marsden and Micky Moody and was inspired by the breakup of Coverdale's first marriage.

In Firecracker magazine, Coverdale said:

"You can look at my first marriage and see "Fool for Your Loving" and "Don't Break My Heart Again." A lot of those were fueled by songs about a relationship that once was very positive but sadly was unfolding into not positive."

The song was originally written for blues legend B. B. King.
