Coz I Luv You – Slade

Australian Charts:
Coz I Luv You entered the Kent charts on 27 December 1971 and peaked at #7. It was #50 on the Top 100 of 1972.

From the Slade album ‘Sladest’.

“Coz I Luv You” features electric violin played by Jimmy Lea. The song was written after producer Chas Chandler insisted the band write an original song to follow-up their first single, Bobby Marchan’s “Get Down and Get with It”. One evening, Lea turned up Noddy Holder’s home with his violin and an idea for a song after hearing “Nine By Nine” by the John Dummer Blues Band. The pair wrote the song in half an hour and began the successful songwriting partnership of Holder/Lea, which would go on to write the bulk of Slade’s material.

The record’s title was misspelt as ‘Coz I Luv You.’ Noddy Holder said: “We thought ‘Because I Love You’ was a wet title for a song so we used the spelling hat would be on toilet walls in the Midlands and that made it more hard-hitting. When it went to #1, it gave us an enormous amount of confidence in our writing abilities. We had the courage of our convictions that we could keep on doing it.”
