Listen to the Music!

Love Runs Deeper Than Pride, one of Jenny Burton’s most popular tunes, is a powerfully emotive song with an equally powerful message. With Valentine’s Day on the horizon, many of us are consumed with planning out the perfect day, picking out gifts and making dinner reservations. But the true meaning behind this holiday, the sharing of a life with another, can require a level of trust and openness that is difficult to risk. This song, told in the aftermath of a relationship, laments the short-sightedness of pride, and describes the path forward: choosing love by daring to submit yourself to something greater than yourself. It is found on the album The Best Of Jenny Burton – the best of the recordings from 3 decades of music making. It represents the work of not only the radiant Jenny Burton, but also the inspired work of countless other musicians, engineers, arrangers and supporters. Produced and primarily composed by Peter Link, it is also a retrospective of a great portion of his career as well. This song is also included on Songs of Love, a collection of songs themed around love in its multifaceted splendor.

The Lyrics

"A glorious explosion of sound that embraces everyone in a "Hallelujah" of harmonies ... A roller-coaster ride through R&B, pop and gospel." -Wayman Wong, New York Daily News

"How lucky to come across the beautifully sung Jenny Burton Experience. A superslick, pop-gospely entertainment, the Experience stars the sleek but fiery Burton. The nine-voice choir behind her is so pristine it sounds like it's been remixed and mastered in advance." -Michael Musto, The Village Voice

  1. Shoot!!!!!! Another one of my All-time favorites. It got me through and above a particularly discouraging and depressing day many years ago and it remains a reminder of divine Love’s power to keep me in forgiveness of myself and others daily.

    1. Yes, Ginny. It was written in the throes of a very rough breakup, and originally got me through it. Let’s hear it though, for Jenny who absolutely knocked it out of the park.

  2. I’m always humbled and proud when Watchfire Music offers one of the songs I’ve recorded with them, as the song of the week, and especially, a Peter Link song.
    “Love Runs Deeper Than Pride”, is one of our standards. In these times we’re living through, this song is still relevant, in that it examines how pride hinders healing. My grandmother used to say to me, straight out of the book of Proverbs, “That pride goth before a fall.” I’ve been hollowed out and I’ve fallen, so this song comes from personal life experience.
    It’s a mind, heart, soul searching kind of song.

    1. Thanks,Jenny, once again, for your always in depth comments. I remember your grandmother as a walking encyclopedia of proverbs! :O)
