“There are more love songs than anything else.
If songs could make you do something we’d all love one another.”
Do you have a favorite love song? I am pretty sure you do. Love songs can stir the soul in many ways.
I remember way back my mother always listening to nothing but love songs. This was every Saturday around noon. My sister and I had our chores to help her clean the house and she would put on those eight track tapes (yeah I did say way back) and hear nothing but songs of love. What was interesting to see was that she could be sad or happy and she still played those sentimental tunes. I used to wonder why and think to myself, here we go again, but funny thing was that at times throughout different periods of days I found myself singing these songs. My sister and I would sing along with our mom and many times my mom would take one of us and dance around the room. Memories of times like these are to treasure. I know I do.
Love songs are very popular for so many reasons. It can have a meaning to one person and a totally different meaning to another. There are people that can be sad and still listen to sad love songs. There are those tunes that just seem to melt your heart away and there are those that make you feel mighty and powerful. Like pictures can sometimes help you tell someone how you feel, so does music, and especially love songs.
When I was a teen (yes way back), I remember a moment where I wanted to anxiously tell someone that I was attracted to how I felt. No matter how I tried I just froze. I remember listening to a song that soon became one of my favorites to listen to. I went out and bought a 45 rpm record of it. It was perfect. Here is part of the lyric:
Yeah, I know it’s kinda strange, but every time I’m near you
I just run out of things to say, I know you’d understand
‘Cause every time I try to tell you, the words just came out wrong
So I’ll have to say I love you, in a song
Okay if you are not familiar with the lyric it’s a song by Jim Croce (may he rest in peace). You know it’s true though. Sometimes it’s hard to tell someone how you feel and there is always that perfect song you find that can do it for you and more so when the subject is love. Love songs can make you cry and still feel happy. They can make you like feel already in love but you might not have anyone in mind at all. You love life and you can find a love song that can express that emotion too.
It’s a powerful thing music. A love song can bring people together. It can bring up memories that reside in your heart and silently put a smile on your face. Listening to some can give you goosebumps and make it seem like the world is just perfect everywhere. It can also make you very sad and bring on loneliness. But overall it can make you want to dance around the room and make you want to shout out to the world, hey everyone I’m in love! So tell me what are some of your favorite love songs?
