Song Review: Linear – “Sending All My Love”

“Sending All My Love” was released as the lead-off single from Linear’s 1990 self-titled debut album. The single was released on February 15, 1990, and it peaked at number five on the Billboard Hot 100.

I was 14 years old and in the ninth grade when this single was released. I fell in love with this fun and upbeat freestyle/pop song the very first time I heard it. There was just something about it that grabbed my interest immediately, and it became one of my favorite songs that I listened to during the spring of 1990. 25 years later, I still enjoy listening to this song as much as I did when I was a teenager. While it may sound a little dated now, it’s just so catchy that you can’t help but still enjoy it.

The music video was definitely aimed at teenagers in 1990. It featured footage of the group lip-synching the song inside a building intercut with footage of the band dancing in various locations. While I say the song itself sounds a little dated, I have to admit that the video looks even more dated than the song sounds. But the video is good for what it is, and it really worked well for this song.
