Howard Jones had 10 top 40 hits between 1983 and 1986 with 6 breaking into the top 10 and a host of other hits including:
- What Is Love
- Pearl In The Shell
- New Song
- Things Can Only Get Better
- Always Asking Questions
- No One Is To Blame
Speaking on the hit single What Is Love, Howard says the messages in his hit song have not changed: “I feel the same as I did then, which is that for a relationship to work, to be really in love with somebody, you have to know who you are.
And they have to know who they are. And then you kind of face the world together, rather than you clutching to the apron strings of the other person for their support. This is my philosophy about that, really. You can't be dependent on another person. You have to know yourself so that you can then stand on your own. Only then can you have a great relationship with somebody. So that's really what that song is indicating.”
