Track Description
Available in:
"The Trouble with Love Is" is the fourth and final single from pop rock singer Kelly Clarkson's debut album, Thankful. It was co-written by Clarkson, Evan Rogers, and Carl Sturken and co-produced by Rogers and Sturken. A bluesy number, it has Clarkson explaining how love can be wonderful but also what the trouble with love is.

Clarkson had been pressing for other singles choices from the album, especially "You Thought Wrong", but following the underperformance of rock-tinged single "Low" and the success of "A Moment Like This", her label felt she needed to return to ballads. However, this strategy was unsuccessful as "The Trouble with Love Is" had slight R&B/soul influences that were unsuitable for airplay of ballads at the time. (Adult Contemporary radio and Hot Adult Contemporary radio usually stay away from ballads of this genre.) A role as the love theme for the film Love Actually failed to generate interest.

Song received same favourable reviews and it was compared to Mariah Carey and Beyonce songs.

"The Trouble with Love Is" was able to chart on the Adult Top 40, Top 40 Tracks, and the Top 40 Mainstream, but failed to do so on the Billboard Hot 100 or the Hot 100 Airplay. The song was released as a double A-side in the United Kingdom with *"Low", and not surprisingly it also flopped, peaking at number thirty-five. In contrast, the single performed very well in Australia, peaking at number eleven in the ARIA Singles Chart and achieved gold status. It was also used in the credit sequence of the movie Love Actually.
