Victim Of Love was Erasure's sixth single release and the third to be lifted from the synth duo's second album The Circus. Released on May 18th 1987, the song was a remix of the original album version and peaked at #7 in the UK singles chart. As always (apart from cover versions, of course!) the song was written by the band members Andy Bell and Vince Clarke.

In the video, the boys appear to be in some kind of attic - maybe a barn? It's a pretty depressing location, but the song is more uplifting, thankfully.
