"Slave to Love" is the first single released from former Roxy Music singer Bryan Ferry's 1985 release, "Boys And Girls", and is one of his most popular solo hits. It was featured on the Adrian Lyne movie "Nine 1/2 Weeks" where the entire song was played in one of the scenes.

Featuring an elegant vocal by Ferry, the song is a romantic love ballad and, as such, is featured on the "Slave to Love: Best of the Ballads" compilation in 2000, which was named for the song, as was one of his biggest ballad releases.
