This morning I was listening to Trompe Le Monde, specifically Letter To Memphis, and thought what a lovely love inducing song and it got me thinking of SG and his love of lists and music. That’s right SG, I think about you in my spare time. But in a respectible way. I definitely don’t fanatsize about you wearing a loin cloth and swinging from a vine Tarzan style.
Anywho, this is a place where you can list your most favorite love songs that you love. But not in a rude way.
For me I would like to start by listing these lovley little gems…
Of Montreal ~ Keep Sending Me Black Fireworks
John Lennon ~ Oh Yoko!
I get angry when people blame Yoko for breaking up the Beatles. Like John Lennon couldn’t possibly be human and fall in love.April 7, 2009 at 1:59 pm #134507"girl" wrote:I definitely don’t fanatsize about you wearing a loin cloth and swinging from a vine Tarzan style.
We`d make a great couple if you`d put on your gorilla suitApril 7, 2009 at 2:03 pm #134508
Dire Straits-Tunnel Of Love
Makes me think of a girl I liked a long time ago
More to come while I think them upApril 7, 2009 at 2:09 pm #134509
Guided By Voices-Mesh Gear Fox
So around the time I first heard this,I fell for a girl.She was like Lucy from Charlie Brown in real life.Kinda snobbish but really smart and classy.April 7, 2009 at 4:51 pm #134510
Poor SG, maybe you’d feel better if you put on your loin cloth.
Buddy Holly has about a gabillion love songs to choose from. Personally my faves are as followed
Love Is Strange
I’m Gonna Love You Too
Now We’re One
You’re The One
And of course there is Hermans Hermits ~ Can’t You Feel My Heartbeat
Nirvana ~ Drain You
The Zombies ~ Going Out Of My Head
The Zombies ~ I Love You This song does funny things to me. Sometimes saying I love you is the hardest thing in the world to do.
Oh and when Cat Power does Sea Of Love. Oh, Chan Marshall, you have the most beautiful voice in the universe.April 7, 2009 at 5:40 pm #134511
Sebadoh-Brand New Love:
Lou writes such great cynical love songs
Harriet Wheeler has such a beautiful voice,this song makes me think of sunny days
Lou Reed-Coney Island Baby:
Lou`s great shout out to love,’remember the princess who lived on the hill,who loved you even though she knew you were wrong’
The Shangri La`s-What Is Love:
Betty on vocals I think,not her sister Mary.You can hear the blueprint of Kim Deal`s vocal style here.
Robert Scott writes some power love songs,this one is a real beauty
Afghan Whigs-My Curse:
Devastating!Sung by Marcy of Scrawl.I`m in tears most times I hear it.
Dinosaur Jr-Not The Same:
J`s falsetto makes all the more powerful
Carol has that vunerable yet tough grit in her voice,Peter`s guitar work is the icing on the cake
Sandy Denny-Full Moon:
A great miss you type of love song.Sandy`s death not long after makes it more sad.The clarinet solo is fitting with the tune
Rolling Stones-Lady Jane:
Told from the perspective of Henry the 8th and his many wives.
My Bloody Valentine-Cupid Come:
MBV came up with some great noisy love songs
Roxy Music-Love Is The Drug:
Bryan Ferry is mister suave.Funky dancable song
So amazingly beautiful
About someone who died.Collins rarely sounds this sincere
Anita O`Day-Stella By Starlight:
One of my favorite old songs.The melody is greater than the lyrics
Ella Fitzgerald-I Can`t Get Started:
Another great old song.About a person who has done everything in the world but can`t get the person he or she lovesApril 8, 2009 at 7:04 am #134512
Sweet little tune.I`m in love with your eyes…
Eleventh Dream Day-It`s All A Game:
Some of their tunes were not fiction.The married couple in the band had a rocky marriage.
Billie Holiday-I Wished On The Moon:
She recorded it first in 1935 then again in 1956.Simple and sweet song.
Emm Gryner-Straight To You:
Nick Cave cover.Emm gets those piano chords going.
Dinah Washington-There Is No Greater Love:
In the middle it sounds like she`s going to explode the mic
Tom Waits-Fish And Bird:
Only Tom could write a song about a bird falling in love with a whale and not come off silly
The Descendents-Silly Girl:
When they were`nt goofing around,they came up with tunes like this
Frank Sinatra-All Or Nothing At All:
Frank wants it all baby!
Julie London-So In Love:
Cole Porter wrote some damn fine love songs,Julie always delivered a sultry performance.
Eric`s Trip-My Chest Is Empty Part 2:
What a gem!They play it acoustic,add in some melodica,with Julie and Rick harmonizing sweetly

I don`t know who this country boy is but Maria sings it so wellApril 8, 2009 at 12:20 pm #134513
