Something in the Way She Moves by The Beatles. It's not only for the memories. It's got a timeless magic to it that makes me imagine it playing out in
Hey, That's No Way to Say Goodbye by Roberta Flack. It's a guilty secret of mine. I was head over heels in lust and love with someone while I was in a
long-term relationship. I still think about her sometimes and this song brings it back. It was double-bad because I had stronger feelings for her than
I did for my partner. We were close friends, she was out of my league and I felt like a turd for wanting to be unfaithful to the woman I also loved.
Yes, I would have done the dirty in a flat second. People, eh? We're a bunch of bastards sometimes. lol
Flack's voice is so mellifluous, the lyrics are beautiful and her backing band were all top session players.
Before I could admit I loved Karen Carpenter, It was the eighties and being a metal head I had a image to uphold.
I had a first true love, and this was our song.
It still effects me when I hear it today. HOWEVER, I recently found a FB account of this original love and THANK THE GODS ABOVE we broke up 35 years
I showed my wife of 26 years and all she could do was smile, you know, that, "I told you so smile", and walk away with a little extra swing in her
hips. I love my wife! And thank GOD that 'first' love got away.

I think the best love songs have personal stories. It's not how great the song itself may or may not be, but it's the story.
The Van Halen song I posted is one of those. It was the anthem of the summer after my husband and I met. We truly did sort of have love at first
sight, and I went home while he stayed at school. We visited every weekend, and often that song would come on the radio when one or the other of us
was driving to or from.
It sort of become the anthem of that time in our lives.
