"Love Drunk" is the first and lead single taken from Boys Like Girls' sophomore album of the same name. It is their highest charting single to date, placing at number 22 on the Billboard Hot 100, one spot above The Great Escape.

Song information

The song premiered on MySpace and was released via iTunes on June 30, 2009. The song was sent to mainstream radios in United Statesmarker on July 7, 2009.

The song has reached number 9 on the MTV Weekend Countdown (week of August 9), and number 34 on American Top 40 with Ryan Seacrest (week of August 8) and number 35 on Rick Dees Weekly Top 40 (week of August 8).

Critical Reception

"Love Drunk" gained mixed reviews on its release. Some critics enjoyed the track, including "About.com's" Top 40 Reviews, which claimed the song had "glorious" elements. However, many critics and fans alike criticized the song's unmistakeable similarity to The Killers' single "Somebody Told Me", which featured a chorus extremely like that of "Love Drunk".

Music video

The music video began shooting on June 29, 2009, and features actress and singer Ashley Tisdale. "Ashley was awesome -- she played the lead girl," Martin Johnson says. "We did this faux arcade set-up with the band as [carnival] guys. She makes all the guys in the arcade fall for her and then it has a surprise ending."

The music video has been set for a August 3 release date on MTV, but the video is available to watch now on YouTube and other video streaming sites.
