About the Song
"Lookin' for Love" is a song made famous by country music singer Johnny Lee. The song was part of the soundtrack to that year's movie, Urban Cowboy. This iconic "love song" was written by two school teachers, and was actually written about a classroom of second grade children. Johnny Lee discovered the song in a motel room in 1979, and could not believe he had not written the song himself - it was the story of his life. He added some music to the words, and took the song to his producer. The "Lookin' For Love" single went to number one in the country charts, number five in the pop charts, and became Johnny's first gold record while the "Lookin' For Love" album went on to produce four additional number one hits. Lee's movie success continued with the hit single "Pickin' Up Strangers" in the movie, "Coast to Coast," starring Robert Blake and Dyan Cannon. "Lookin' for Love" became part of American.    Download this sheet!

Music sheets - what is all about? Back in the 19th century, songs in the United States were popularized by musicians through music sheets.
