Wow, from Goo Goo Dolls to Sinatra....admirable.


So what's your, how can I say this, Anti-Love song...u know, the one at the heat of the moment when you are just through with it all...

For example, this is mine. Bayside - They're Not Horses, They're Unicorns
www.youtube.com...

You're pulling out your teeth
And I'm the Novocaine you pump in your cheek.

That’s why I'm still around,
You've got blood running down your chin.
But you suffered peacefully (suffered peacefully)

She was a termite
Eating away at my roots.
I was just a lost soul
Who needed a home
I was filling a void with you

And I can't, can't wait
Till you've see see seen
What death and disgust
Have done to me
And I spent three years wishing
For two things,
that one day you'd break
And I'd get to see
How all the choices you've made
Would drive you insane
I wish we never met

As angry as I sound
That’s just the way I cover up, the way I feel.
I've been that way for years and years
Slave to broken hearts and sex appeal

She was a termite
Eating away at my roots.
I was just a lost soul
Who needed a home
I was filling a void with you

And I can't, can't wait
Till you've see see seen
What death and disgust
Have done to me
And I spent three years wishing
For two things,
that one day you'd break
And I'd get to see
How all the choices you've made
Would drive you insane
I wish we never met

She was a termite
Eating away at my roots.
I was just a lost soul
Who needed a home
I was filling a void with you

And I can't, can't wait
Till you've see see seen
What death and disgust
Have done to me
And I spent three years wishing
For two things,
that one day you'd break
And I'd get to see
How all the choices you've made
Would drive you insane
I wish we never met

Oh, in honour of the redhead thread( I should thank caitlinfae for bringing up the memories), here's a couple that involve me and the fiery topped and temperamented ladies of my past.


That movie can still make me cry.



Edited cause I pasted the same link twice. :doh:

They're a little old I guess but there still classics.

And I'll add another I guess since I'm editin'.

I've never heard those two sing together, but definitely both very talented individuals.

Just wondering by your spelling and location, are you fluent in French as well?

hmmm favorite love song...

thats a tuff one, but I'll name a few I enjoy:

John Lennon- Love
(although I'm NOT a fan of Yoko)


Righteous Brothers - Unchained Melody


and I know this one isnt a love song, hell, it doesnt even have words, but it comes from a movie about love and transcending time, so if you've seen the movie, you'll appreciate it:

The Fountain Soundtrack- Death is the Road to Awe


But there are so many good love songs, new and old, I suppose some of them are better or worse depending on the situation your in at the time...
Coldplay has some good ones though

Odessy!!!! I haven't seen you in ages, I was startin' to miss ya!

Agreed, I am NOT a fan of her either... gah...makes me want to pull my hair out.

I love the version of Unchained Melody by Sarah Mclachlan. She does a very nice rendition of it. I always thought that if I was going to get married, I walk down the aisle to that song. Actually there are LOTS of songs she does that I like...



Posession:




Coldplay has some good ones though


Agreed. The Scientist is one of my favorite songs... I really want to see Coldplay - they're playing at the Pemberton Music Festival outside Vancouver BC at the end of the Month...Would LOVE to go... Green Eyes is a really great song too.



Edited to add: Wish you were Here - Pink Floyd!

Hmm...

"Say Goodbye" - Theory of a Deadman



She said "Don't leave this up to me to say that I don't love you anyway"
Just leave it up to me to say goodbye
Because these good times will never last
Keep a hand on the wheel and a foot on the gas
We thought it would last forever
I wish you'd just remember

No
Will anything change your mind?
(She said)
A one way ticket was a pretty good sign
(And I said)
Well how can you leave it all?
(And she said)
There ain't much to leave behind
Just say goodbye
So say goodbye
Say goodbye
So say goodbye
Just say goodbye
So say goodbye
Say goodbye

Next time I'll take it slow
And as for you I'll never know
At least next time I'll try to understand
So please don't leave this up to me to say that you don't love me anyway
I'll just leave it up to you to say goodbye
Cuz these good times will never last
Keep a hand on the wheel and a foot on the gas
We thought it would last forever
In case you don't remember

No
Will anything change your mind?
(She said)
A one way ticket was a pretty good sign
(And I said)
Well how can you leave it all?
(And she said)
There ain't much to leave behind
Just say goodbye
So say goodbye
Say goodbye
So say goodbye
Just say goodbye
So say goodbye
Say goodbye

Just say goodbye
Just say goodbye
Just say goodbye

Well, these good times will never last
Keep a handle on the wheel and your foot on the gas
We thought it would last forever
In case you can't remember

No
Will anything change your mind?
(She said)
A one way ticket was a pretty good sign
(And I said)
No
(And she said)
No
(And I said)
No
(And she said)
No

Just say goodbye
So say goodbye
Say goodbye
So say goodbye
Just say goodbye
So say goodbye
Say goodbye

"Stars and Boulevards" by Augustana is pretty good too...

Ill contribute. Ill start with my favorite love song. Kind of how I feel about the future girl of my life. Im sure my idea of what she will be like and who she actually is wont be the same. It will take me by complete surprise, like it should. (its not an official video, just the first I found)
www.youtube.com...


Next is the runner up. This song is just something that moves me. Brings up a certain memory of how I felt while I was with this person. I don't even bother trying to describe the raw emotion I felt, just let it stay in song form.
www.youtube.com...

Next would be the anti love song. I had another one but this tends to top it. Pretty much explains itself.
www.youtube.com...

This next video Im not even going to get into my it has so much significance to me but if you listen to it I think you will get the general idea.
www.youtube.com...

edit: because I suck so hard at trying to figure out how to post a youtube video I give up lol

You seem to be a Country Boy!


Here is another one of my favorites... (I'm a sucker for the Lifehouse songs...their lyrics, always find a way into my heart).

"Take me Away" - Lifehouse
I heard this song for the first time last year(ish), and I fell in love with it the first time. The words totally melt my heart lol.



this time what I want is you
there is no one else
who can take your place
this time you burn me with your eyes
you see past all the lies
you take it all away
I've seen it all
and it's never enough
it keeps leaving me needing you

take me away
take me away
I've got nothing left to say
just take me away

I try to make my way to you
but still I feel so lost
I don't know what else I can do
I've seen it all
and it's never enough
it keeps leaving me needing you

take me away
take me away
I've got nothing left to say
just take me away

don't give up on me yet
don't forget who I am
I know I'm not there yet
but don't let
me stay here alone

this time what I want is you
there is no one else
who can take your place
I've seen enough and it's never enough
it keeps leaving me needing you

take me away
take me away
I've got nothing left to say
just take me away

take me away
take me away
I've got nothing left to say
just take me away

It's hard to pick out just one, since I may not have the same favorite every day.
Anyway...


Daniel Lanois - Where the Hawkwind Kills (1989)


Lyrics:

Where The Hawkwind Kills


The suburb walls are closing in
I've looked at you and I've seen you
through your curtain

With a naked eye from not far,
I've shed a tear for you,
a flowing fountain

Flaming trees,
I'm lost in fields of your hair

From where the hawkwinds kill
and the blood runs thin
I'll go now, fly I will

From inside the gates of the stripping yard
I can't touch you, I can't feel for this thunder town
I want you now while my body is young,
my mind is strong away from thunder town

From where the hawkwind kills
and the dam runs deep
In this land of heaven, not so sweet

I turn my back to a godless night
I hear the mighty stranger over thunder hill

From where the hawkwinds kill
and the blood runs thin
I'll go now, fly I will...

Over the mountain I must go
To see the valley below
Thunder town...

Today couldnt have been more perfect, nor the timing of this song coming on better. I was sitting in front of the picture window of my living room in the rocking chair, eating shrimp/drinking home made iced tea, watching the lighting of the sky change as the sun went down, weather perfect as could be, windows open, and this song came on.



Couldnt have been a better moment. Made my entire day. (and yes, I consider this a love song because its the kind of love Im hoping to find. That unconditional love for your family/wife that makes life so worth it all)

I'm a also a huge fan of Coldplay - I watched their "Viva La Vida" Music Video today - I know its gonna be stuck in my head all damn day! LOVE that song.

But, its not so much a love song. I haven't heard much of the new album, but here are a few of my favorite "love-y" songs from their older albums..Not necessarily that the entire song is Love-y-ish, but there are certain lyrics in these songs, that just melt my heart lol


"Fix You"


"Swallowed in the Sea"


- Carrot

Edited: to remove one I had already posted.

www.youtube.com...

www.youtube.com...

Unfortunally seems there is no official video for this great song, so I've posted 2 youtube links, so you can make up your own mind what video suits best. I personally like the second one but the song is fading out at the end..

I've said this before, I'll say it again...


Something - The Beatles (Abbey Road)

Somewhere in her smile she knows
That I don't need no other lover
Something in her style that shows me
I don't wanna leave her now
I know I believe and how

Wait - The Beatles (Rubber Soul)

It's been a long time
Now I'm coming back home
I've been away now
Oh how I've been alone
Wait till I come back to your side
We'll forget the tears we've cried

But if your heart breaks
Don't wait, turn me away
And if your heart's strong
Hold on, I won't delay
Wait till I come back to your side
We'll forget the tears we've cried

I feel as though
You ought to know
That I've been good
As good as I can be
And if you do
I'll trust in you
And know that you
Will wait for me

If I Needed Some One - The Beatles (Rubber Soul)

If I needed someone to love
You're the one that I'd be thinking of
If I needed someone

If I had some more time to spend
That I guess I'd be with you my friend
If I needed someone
Had you come some other day
Then it might not have been like this
But you see now I'm too much in love

Carve your number on my wall
And maybe you will get a call from me
If I needed someone

I'm With You - LOVE (Four Sail)

I'll be with you, my love, if you
You say you want me, ooh
Anything you want I'll try to get it for you


I'll be with you, my love, in case
You have forgotten, ooh
And in Manhattan I'll be walkin' down Broadway with you


And if it's crowded there
You might see me anywhere
I've got time



Sorry for the long post!
