Book of Love was, from 1984 to 1993, a popular synthpop and dance music band, alongside Sire Records labelmates Depeche Mode and Erasure. Led by vocalist Susan Ottaviano, the band also included Ted Ottaviano (no relation to Susan), Lauren Roselli and Jade Lee.

The band was formed in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and later based out of New York City. The band gained its first exposure as the opening act on Depeche Mode’s Black Celebration tour.

Their biggest success came on the US dance charts, placing seven singles in the Billboard Hot Dance Club Play chart between 1985 and 1993. The group’s largest exposure on pop radio was with the song „Pretty Boys and Pretty Girls.“ The song, from its album Lullaby, was originally the second half of a medley with the group’s house-music version of Mike Oldfield’s „Tubular Bells,“ a 1973 instrumental that served as the eerie theme music of the classic horror film The Exorcist. Edited down to single length, „Pretty Boys and Pretty Girls“ became Book of Love’s only Hot 100 entry, peaking at number 90 in 1988.

In February, 2001 — sixteen years after its first dance chart entry — Book of Love had its first number-one hit on the US dance chart when „Boy,“ a track originally from its debut album, was remixed and re-released as the lead single from their greatest hits collection, I Touch Roses: The Best of Book of Love. Another newly remixed track, „I Touch Roses“ followed shortly thereafter, and in additional support of the greatest hits collection, a small, half-dozen venue tour visited cities spanning coast to coast.
