Whether I am in or out of love, I know it exists and knowing this, gives one hope.
Whether its the love for your family and friends or love of the romantic variety, we all need it.
Here are three of my favorites.
Please share your favorite love song or songs... if you so feel like celebrating love... it is Spring!😊

My favorite duet of all time,

And...

a reply to: OtherSideOfTheCoin That was very lovely! Made me feel sadly sentimental for slow dancing.. perfect for a wedding! My BF has two left feet that don't ever do the simple side to side step.😢

One of many of this band's romantic songs. All to my knowledge have some romance or sexuality to them and all are poetic.

a reply to: Tiamat384 A bit dark... vampiric? (is vampiric a word?... spelling?) It is interesting when love, which I find to be a cheery thing can also be dark and or mysterious. The darkest love song I really like would be,

It's not that dark of a song, but it could easily be misconstrued into creepy. This video is from a movie I like, Legend, and the song is played at the ending credits.
Oh yeah, how is your writing going? And thank you for posting a song!

If this isn't a love song I don't know what is.

Hmm yes the band's songs are all dark with romantic and sexual elements. In another song of theirs the words go: "Her hands on me, it's ecstasy, it's heavenly, it's god I see". That is a clear reference to sex and orgasm. Some of the best lyrics(I won't post the song). The song is "The Light at the End of the World" by the same band:
Small a speck in the wide blue sea.
'Tis the last of all the land.
A dweller upon our lonesome isle, the last lonely man

On weary nights under stars
he'd ofter lay and gaze.
Up towards the moon and stars,
The sun's dying haze.

Time and again Orion's light
filled our man with joy.
Within the belt he'd see his love
remembering her voice.

Such is life upon the isle
of torment and woe.
One day good, one day bad,
And some days even hope.

The light at the end of the world
burns bright for mile and mile
Yet tends the man its golden glow
in misery all the while.

For fifty years he stands and waits atop the light alone.
Looking down upon his isle the Gods have made his home

A deity felt sympathy
and threw our man a light
- 'Your woman you may see
again for a single night'.

- 'I'll tend the light for one more night
with the woman whom I love',
screamed the man with tearful eyes
to the deity above.

And so it was that very night
his lover did return.
To his arms and to their bed
together they did turn.

In deepest love and lust for life
entwined they did fall.
Lost within each other's arms they danced

Her hair, long and black,
The dark beauty of her eyes.
Olive skin and warm embrace,
her memory never dies.

Agony, like none before,
was suffered by our man.

Anger raged and misery too
like nothing ever before.

His sacrifice was not so great,
he insists upon the world.
Again he would crime, again he would pay,
for one moment with the girl

Long was the night filled with love.
For them the world was done.
Awoke he did to brightest light,
his woman and life had gone.

To his feet he leapt, to the sea he looked.
To the lighthouse on the stone.
The price is paid and from now on
he lives forever alone.

Fifty years have passed since then
and not a soul has he seen.
but his woman lives with him still
in every single dream.

Tis sad to hear how young love has died
to know that alone someone has cried.
but memories are ours to keep.
To live them again, in our sleep.

My writing is well. I've written a story in the Shed, 8 parts and will be working on another one there soon enough. I also wanted to enter the contest and maybe another short story. I did add on a tiny amount to that story, but not much. I need to rewrite the new part.

Warren Zevon's
Searching For A Heart



Darkness in the morning. Shadows on the land.
Certain individuals aren't sticking to the plan.

And I'm searching for a heart. Searching everyone.
They say love conquers all. You cant start it like a car. You can't stop it with a gun

Leaving in the evening. Traveling at night.
Staying inconspicuous. I'm staying out of sight.

And I'm searching for a heart. Searching everyone.
They say love conquers all. You can't start it like a car, you can't stop it with a gun

They tell me love requires a little standing in line, and I've been waiting for you, lover, for a long, long time.
I've been pacing the floor, I've been watching the door. Meanwhile I'll keep searching for a heart.

I've been searching high and low for you. Trying to track you down.
Certain individuals have finally come around.

And I'm searching for a heart. Searching everyone.
They say love conquers all. You can't start it like a car, you can't stop it with a gun


A couple other good love songs:

a reply to: denybedoomed The perfect song for a grey, mildly sprinkling spring day, sitting on a porch, drinking tea... beautiful yet bittersweet leaving me with that melancholy love feeling.

Yes, vampiric is a word. I've seen it in print but it gets a red line under it for some reason. Odd.

That's a good song from an excellent movie. Darkness was bad ass and Tim Curry did such a wonderful job it's hard to imagine him playing Dr. Frankenfurter.

Here are a couple I like:



ETA: I found a dictionary page that has the word "vampiric". Here The spell check is stupid.

a reply to: ColeYounger Thank you for contributing ColeYounger! The first one is a tad dark yet contemplative. That might be one of my favorite Doors songs... haven't heard it for awhile now, thank you! We all need to hear Stand by Me... it's a classic!
