"Love Is" is the debut single by Canadian singer/songwriter Alannah Myles, released in Canada in 1989. In the rest of the world (except Australia), it was released as the follow-up to her worldwide hit "Black Velvet" in 1990.
In 1990, the song was nominated for the Juno Award for Single of the Year, losing to Myles' own "Black Velvet".
Myles filmed two music videos, both directed by Canadian photographer and film director Deborah Samuel, one for the Canadian release and the other in 1990 for the international release.
The original 1989 video opens with a shot of Myles' legs while walking onstage and she then performs the song at a concert with her band.
The 1990 videoclip sees Myles and her band performing the song in a studio. That footage is intercut with black & white scenes of men and women flirting in a bar, and scenes of Myles horseback riding in a desert, followed by an ostrich and a kangaroo. The desert scenes were filmed in Joshua Tree National Park, California.
