1982 -- first Furs song to chart in the US! -- https://kexp.org/50 Todd Rundgren played marimba on this song! Furs frontman Richard Butler told Creem in 1983: "[Love My Way] it's basically addressed to people who are fucked up about their sexuality, and says 'Don't worry about it.' It was originally written for gay people."

In a 2012 interview, singer Jim Kerr recalled the production of the album as a wonderful time during the late spring and early summer of 1982 in which "everything we tried worked", adding: "There were no arguments. We were in love with what we were doing, playing it, listening to it. You don't get many periods in your life when it all goes your way."

Joan Jett was touring England as a member of an all teenage girl group called The Runaways when she discovered this song. She wanted to record it with The Runaways, but the other members didn't like the song and made the mistake of passing it up. In 1979, Jett recorded it with Paul Cook and Steve Jones of The Sex Pistols and released it as a B-side. Finally, in 1981, Jett recorded the song with her band The Blackhearts, resulting in a monster hit.
