"Better Love Next Time" is a song by Dr. Hook, released as a single in the fall of 1979. It was the first of three singles from their LP Sometimes You Win. The lyrics involve the singer comforting and encouraging a grieving and despondent friend who has lost a love, with the reassurance that "better love" will be found in the future.
In the United States, the single reached #12 on the Billboard Hot 100 and spent 19 weeks on the chart. It also reached #3 on the Adult Contemporary chart. It was less of a hit in Canada, but reached the Top 10 in the United Kingdom (#8) and New Zealand (#7). "Better Love Next Time" is ranked as the 49th biggest American hit of 1980.
