"Symptoms of True Love" is the second single from Tracie Spencer's self-titled debut album. The single was released in 1988. It was written by German composer team Irmgard Klarmann and Felix Weber. Unlike her first single from the album (the ballad "Hide and Seek"), this song is an uptempo club/dance track. The theme of the song focuses on Spencer discovering that she is suffering from "symptoms of true love" and lists the causes.
