"Love, Truth and Honesty" is a song by English girl group Bananarama from their first greatest hits album, Greatest Hits Collection (1988). It was released on 12 September 1988 as the album's lead single. The song was co-written and produced by the Stock Aitken Waterman (SAW) trio and was the last single Bananarama would write with them.
It is the only Bananarama track to give a songwriting credit to new member Jacquie O'Sullivan. The single peaked at number 23 on the UK Singles Chart, while reaching number one in Finland, as well as the top 20 in Ireland and New Zealand, the top 30 in Switzerland and the top 40 in Australia. In the United States, "Love, Truth and Honesty" peaked at number 89 on the Billboard Hot 100, marking the group's last appearance on the chart to date.
The music video, directed by Big TV!, features the trio performing in front of mirrors and neon lights as a well-groomed man looks on. The three members of the band are shown alternately in elegant evening gowns—something of a departure from their usual look—as well as more casual black outfits.
