"Four Letter Word" is the fourth single from the Kim Wilde album Close. It was released at the end of 1988, the year that had seen Wilde release a best-selling album, have four international hits (including the chart-topping "You Came") and support Michael Jackson on the European leg of his world tour. The song marked the first occasion in Wilde's then eight-year career where she released a straight ballad as a single. It also marked her last release of a song written by her father and brother (who had written the majority of her early hits together, including "Kids in America"). It became her third consecutive UK Top 10 single from "Close", reaching number 6. Additionally it also peaked within the top 10 in Belgium, Denmark, the Netherlands and Ireland.
