Boy George as Jesus Loves You. This was a "collective project " that George launched in the Fall of 1989 for his new label More Protein. The music that was released during this time was not intended to be aimed at the music charts because it was released through an underground record label. Little did Virgin Records know that some of the singles would cross over to the mainstream Top 40 charts.
Generations of love was released in the USA and was a Top 20 dance tune on the Billboard Hot 100 Dance Tracks at number #11 for 16 weeks it was on the dance club play chart.
Everything Starts With An E reached the UK top 20 at number 15
Bow Down Mister hits the UK Top 40 at #27 for 10 weeks on the chart. It also went to the Top 5 in Austria and #2.
Generations of Love was re-issued in 1991 and went to the UK Top 40 at #35.
It was such a pleasure for George to be back on the charts during this time. Still to this day this type of dance music remains, in my opinion, his most sophisticated work. At heart, it was a sort of "world dance" project, made in a good period for George, as he'd discovered Hare Krishna and seemed calm, though it was also the high point of song writing. George finally returned back to his fantastic song writing when he released his 2013 album "This is what I do"
Jesus Loves You (The Singles Reviews)
After The Love
After the love - was their debut single. It was released on October 23, 1989. I remember reading a review in Melody Maker that said "After The Love" by "Jesus Loves You" is a song with so much lush, that when you play it, rain would pour from your ceiling".
Generations Of Love
Generations Of Love was the second release from Jesus Loves You. Released on June 4, 1990 (UK & Europe) Generations of Love was a political statement, smooth and bass heavy, with a warm, sweet accordion rib boned through it. We the staff at BoyGeorgeFever.Com love this!
Generations Of Love - (Review From Melody Maker)
Generations Of Love - is a deep blue master piece of a song,it feels like a mantra mesmeric and generous built on shuffling rhythms and repetitious ,funky dubbed out bass. It hangs in a room the way smoke does, absorbing attention like a dream, occupying rather than diverting. There’s an indefinable warmth to this record. They key to success is the almost tangible presence of Boy George. He's in excellent voice here-George just seems to go on getting better with age. - lamenting the state of the world, from generalities to specifics and you know he means every word of it. There more intensity in this performance that any other in the course of his recorded career. "Can you feel it -my generations of love" he ask" and when he singing it , yes you can. Generations of love is a force that's impossible to resist, Why even try?
Billboard Magazine (USA) "If the vocals sound familiar, they should—since the track is actually the latest from former pop darling Boy George. Brilliantly conceived deep house jam has already set U.K. dance floors on fire. Similar results can be expected here.
Generations Of Love - (Review From The Face Magazine) A truly superb record - under the guise of Jesus Loves You which should put him back at the top of the tree, Mixed by Paul Oakenfold & toasting by Mc Kinky, this is a slinky seduction of a song. It's deliciously understated & shows off the breathy vocals of the BOY to rare perfection. Candidate for Single Of The Year, no less.
Still to this very day Generations of Love has been remixed over 68 times. It was just re-released in 2017 by Phunk Investigation featuring remixes by Christian Poow. In 2018 we also had the unreleased remixes from Bruce Forest that wee released on a 12' single.
