"That's the Way Love Is" is a 1963 R&B single by blues singer Bobby Bland. The single was the last of three entries to hit number one on the R&B charts. "That's the Way Love Is" also made the Top 40.[1] The B-side of "That's the Way Love Is", entitled "Call On Me", was also on the charts at the same time. The B-side was more successful on the pop singles chart, peaking at number twenty-two, and on the soul singles chart "Call On Me" made it to number six. Bobby Bland's "That's the Way Love Is" is a different song than the 1969 top ten pop/soul single by Marvin Gaye ("That's the Way Love Is").
