“(Can’t Live Without Your) Love and Affection” is a song by American hard rock band Nelson. It was released in 1990 on Geffen Records and backed with “Will You Love Me”. The song was based on a crush on Cindy Crawford. The music video features model and actress Judie Aronson who first appears on the cover of a magazine called “Vague”, a play on Vogue. The song itself is known for its technical drumming involving syncopation and double bass, and virtuoso guitar soloing.
The production on the single and its B-side, “Will You Love Me”, was done by David Thoener and Marc Tanner. It also appears as the first track on Nelson’s album, After the Rain. The song is used in X-Men: Pryde of the X-Men. American boyband Natural covered the song for their 2002 album Keep It Natural.
