Live versionsEdit

With original lead vocalist Joseph Williams having left the group not long after the song's recording, lead vocal duties on the song were passed on to Tony Spinner in 2002. Before that many touring members had sung the song on Toto's live concerts. [4] For their live album, Falling in Between Live and final concerts, Toto performed a semi jazz version of the song.

Since Williams' return in 2010, "Stop Loving You" has since appeared on 35th Anniversary Tour and 40 Trips Around the Sun, two live albums released in 2014 and 2018 respectively.[5][6]
