“Don’t Fall in Love (I Said)” was the lead single from the album Minx in 1985 on Portrait Records. It was a top 40 chart success in the UK and Ireland.
- The song was written by Toyah Willcox and Simon Darlow, and produced by Christopher Neil. The lyrics of the track tell about love from a cynical point of view.
- It was Toyah’s first single as a solo artist, released in April 1985, over a year and 5 months after the Toyah band’s final single “The Vow”. “Don’t Fall in Love” spent a total of 6 weeks on the UK Singles Chart, peaking at number 22. It also reached number 17 in Ireland.
- The B-sides from the 7″ and 12″ vinyl, together with the extended mix of the title song, appeared on the 2005 CD reissue of Minx.
- The song’s music video was directed by Terence Donovan who also took photographs for the single as well as the Minx album covers. The clip pictures Willcox strutting through Wimbledon Common in London at night, wearing a latex dress.
