Tomorrow I'll miss you
Remember I'll always be true
And then while I'm away
I'll write home every day
And I'll send all my loving to you
Ahhh, can't you just hear Lennon's guitar strumming madly away in the background?
Love songs have been a staple of the music industry forever it seems. They are part of the soundtrack of our lives. Here's another one you might recognize:
There's no way they could have made two
Girl you're my reality
But I'm lost in a-a-a a dream
You're the first, you're the last, my everything
Have you got the tune in your head? Can you hear Barry White's low, rich voice as it swims up into the higher notes? Oh yeah, I knew you would.
What is your favorite love song? Or maybe you couldn't possibly pick just one. If so, tell us a few of your favorites.
I'm especially interested in why. Do the lyrics have a special meaning for you? Did you play that song over and over in your bedroom when you were in your teens? Did you dance to it at your wedding? Was it on the car radio when you had your first kiss? Or maybe the tune just grabs you on some elemental level.
It may be quite simple but now that it's done
I hope you don't mind
I hope you don't mind that I put down in words
How wonderful life is while you're in the world
Hmmmm ... are my oldies roots showing? Careful, I feel a rendition of Crocodile Rock coming on.
So what is your song? And feel free to pop a few lyrics into your response, get everyone out there in blogland humming along.
