5 favorite love songs


I'd give up provolone, if you would have it so
If you'd give me a kiss please, then Swiss cheese I'd forgo

(I'd link to the lyrics, but every website I've checked just completely butchers the cheese names)


I know we're only two-bit clowns
in a one-ring circus



I know that I am like the rain
There but for the grace of you go I



What a dream I had
Pressed in organdy
Clothed in crinoline of smoky burgundy
Softer than the rain



And I want to wake up with the rain
Falling on a tin roof
While I'm safe there in your arms



I thought this was going to be a fun and easy list to compile. Then I realized I don't listen to love songs: the songs I listen to that touch on love usually wind up with someone getting jilted or winding up dead. So if you have some favorite happy love songs, feel free to share--I obviously need to update my repertoire!

Sandra Boynton's CDs have been staples of car trips with our kids for years (NY-MA-VA-VT-MO family is far flung). Our four have all the lyrics memorized and take turns singing lead and back-up - such a fun fun collection! My graduating senior wants to sing "Evermore" for her chorus solo at their last concert this May. It's a love song by a parent to a child just setting off in the world. If she pulls it off, I shall be a puddle in my seat.

Simon and Garfunkel are also favorites - I'm eager to hear your other choices. and yes, so many love songs turn bitter - maybe happy people don't spend the time to write as much?

Re: boynton
maybe happy people don't spend the time to write as much? - Quite likely. When you're happy, you don't feel the need to sit around dissecting it.
