Some love songs are worth reclaiming from their emotional past lives.
I haven't been this scared in a long time. And I'm so unprepared, so here's your Valentine: bouquet of clumsy words, a simple melody - this world's an ugly place, but you're so beautiful to me.
Danced to this one last night when my friend's band covered it. Love.
Tiger Army - Cupid's Victim
Social Distortion - Let It Be Me
One of my most perfect love songs.
Keep hearing this on the radio on the way to work. Not my usual style, but I'm into it.
Richard Thompson – 1952 Vincent Black Lightning…
This is the only song I ever went to a radio station website to track down when I caught the tail end while driving. I still tear up every time I hear the damn thing.
Also note the reactions of the other performers. Popularity (or Notoriety) is mostly marketing and luck, respect from your peers is earned. Witness Warren Zevon who was never really awarded the popularity or commercial success he deserved, yet his final album included guest appearances by Bruce Springsteen, Don Henley, Jackson Browne, Timothy B. Schmit, Joe Walsh, David Lindley, Billy Bob Thornton, Emmylou Harris, Tom Petty, and Dwight Yoakam.
Dedicated to @damnitall, obviously
for the people who put fun in dysfunctional relationships.
Being Irish I always thought this was a beautiful love song.
A woman commits herself totally to man who her parents hate and he offers her the world.
Mad Manoush takes the traditional Irish folk music and does a great mash up that flips it over.
Not sure why I hadn't thought of this one before. I guess I kind of forgot about it for a while.
Definitely one of my favorites.
This would be great for karoke.
