Love Me for a Reason is the twelfth studio album by The Osmonds, released in 1974. The album peaked at No. 47 on the Billboard Top LPs chart.
The Osmonds had already hinted at unforeseen depths when they crowned their most successful year yet with the conceptual The Plan and, it has to be said, scared off a considerable portion of their fan base in so doing. Undeterred, however, they continued driving into more musically sober pastures with Love Me for a Reason, an album of considerably more grown-up emotions and thoughts than any they had unleashed in the past.
Love Me for a Reason is the twelfth studio album by The Osmonds, released in 1974. Two singles were released from the album: the title track "Love Me for a Reason" and "Having a Party". After a string of three albums in which the Osmonds performed their own material and focused on rock music, Love Me for a Reason consisted of the work of professional songwriters; the title track in particular was aimed at the easy listening market, continuing a string of easy listening hits for the quintet.

Undeterred, however, they continued driving into more musically sober pastures with Love Me for a Reason, an album of considerably more grown-up emotions and thoughts than any they had unleashed in the past. Of course, the title track is a pop classic, and is joined here by a handful of additional performances that manage to convey the intended sense of maturity at the same time as sounding like an awful lot of fun - "Having a Party," "I Can't Get Next to You," and (bet you never expected to see a title like this. on an Osmonds record) "Ballin' the Jack.
