"Jungle Love" is a song from The Time's third album, Ice Cream Castle. The track was one of the first songs recorded for the album, being cut in late March 1983 during Prince's 1999 tour. "Jungle Love" was also one of the first Time tracks to involve other members of the band in the creation of the song. Morris Day and Jesse Johnson both contributed to writing the song. Day provided lead vocals and Johnson played guitar on the recording. Prince played all the other instruments.
"Jungle Love" is a funk-pop offering relying mainly on bass and drums (drum machines), although there are elements of New Wave keyboards and a rock guitar solo, allowing the song to cross musical boundaries. Added to this are animalistic sound effects by Day and good-humored sexual lyrics. All this, combined with the Purple Rain momentum, propelled the song to The Time's highest position thus far on the pop charts (#20 on the Billboard Hot 100).
The song is one of The Time's signature numbers and is played at every concert to this day. Live versions of the song have been released on two DVDs, including one of the band performing the song on Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back. A live recording from 1998 was also included on the Morris Day release, It's About Time (released in 2004).
It can be heard in the movies " Bringing Down the House" (2003) and Forgetting Sarah Marshall. It also can be heard in the Everybody Loves Raymond episode "Snow Day" from the sixth season.
