"Love Spreads", written in 1992, is a song by The Stone Roses, released as the first single from the album Second Coming. The record was a No. 2 hit in the UK, the highest peak for any song by the band, as well as the only Stone Roses song to chart on the Billboard Hot 100 charting at #55. This arguably makes "Love Spreads" their most commercially successful track.
Bobby Gillespie of Primal Scream hailed the song "as the greatest comeback single ever." It showcased a bolder, edgier direction for the Roses' sound, especially John Squire's Led Zeppelin tinged guitars.
Squire was responsible for writing the lyrics of the song, a scathing attack on the traditional image of Jesus. Squire portrayed the crucifixion of the Messiah with a black woman on the cross. This continued the band's theme of questioning the depiction of Christ, first used in the track "I Am The Resurrection."

Looks like myspace videos have stopped working again, even on their own site. I contacted their support and reported the problem. I'll wait until I hear back from them. I'd hate to delete all those good videos so I'd rather wait a while longer. Thanks for your patience and understanding.
