Hi everyone.

I did a search and this did not really come up so I apologise if it has been done before.

But I was listening a new complilation given to me recently and it got me wondering what people think is the worlds' greatest love song.

Years ago I think I would have had a different list to the one I am going to post here. Maybe cos my music tastes have changed very slightly.

I found it difficult to think where to start but my list would include

Aerosmith "don't want to miss a thing"
Maroon5 " She will be loved"
Spandu Ballet "Through the barricardes"
Enrigue Englasis "Hero"
Kelly Clarkson "Because of you"

and unchained melody but the version I have on this tape is just not as good as the original

Over to you guys. What makes your top love song?

TnT;)

"Amazed" - Lonestar


One that people other than Aussies may not have heard of - google for "If I Could" by a group called 1927.

Lyrics:

If I could paint
I’d paint a portrait of you
The sunlight in your eyes
A masterpiece of truth
And a single tear like a silent prayer
That’s shining so much brighter
Than a diamond ever dared
If I could do anything at all
I’d do it for you

If I could write
I’d write a book for you
A tale of hidden treasures with an I.O.U.
But a million words wouldn’t say a thing
That won’t be said in three words
Where love’s the central theme
If I could do anything at all
I’d do it for you

Hey darling can’t you see
What you mean to me
Anything I could do I’d do it for you
Hey darling don’t you know
Just how far I’d go
Anything I could do I’d do it for you

Sometimes I feel so second rate
Seems loving you was my greatest mistake
I know I’m insecure and love don’t keep a score
But I wish I could give you more

If I could play
I’d play up a storm for you
A raging sea of passion that you never knew
Every whispered sound would touch your heart
And maybe for a moment
I could be your favourite star

If I could do anything at all
If I could I’d give you more
If I could do anything at all
I’d do it for you?

Maybe slightly off theme (but not much!!) - also consider Everything I Own by David Gates.

He wrote the song after his father died. You could consider the words/sentiment for a lover etc as well as a relative :O

Um, what about The Cure "Love song"


Amen, my # 1 as well.


Followed by:

- "The Rain King," Counting Crowes, live MTV unplugged version (available in I-Tunes store). Heard this only once in the late eighties driving across the desert in California; was able to find it last fall on the internet. God bless the internet.

- "Honesty" + "Just the Way You Are," Billy Joel, cheesy but so am I.

- "Sentimental Over You," Mel Torme aka the Velvet Fog.

- "She Thinks my Tractor's Sexy," Kenny Chesney (forgive me, I live in Alabama).

I don't know if this qualifies as a love song, but I think it's the sexiest song ever: "Music of the Night" from "Phantom of the Opera."

Nothing Else Matters - Metallica

Amen!

So close, no matter how far
couldn't be much more from the heart
forever trust in who we are
And nothing else matters

never opened myself this way
life is ours, we live it our way
oh these words i dont just sing (say?)
and nothing else matters

trust i seek, and i find in you
every day for us something new
open mind for a different view
and nothing else matters...

The Blacksmith, by the late, great Jake Thackray - wordsmith extraordinaire. A tender song about a couple who are not quite how one usually imagines a pair of young lovers. We cannot all be Helen of Troy or Adonis; I accept that my feet are ever so slightly too narrow, for instance.


THE BLACKSMITH

He was a blacksmith by trade.
He used to live on his own.
She was a little old maid.
She was all gristle and bone.
Just a crone that you might not have fancied yourself.
She was not born to attract.
She was lined up for the shelf,
If it were not for the fact the blacksmith loved her well,
He loved her like hell,
He used to grunt and sigh, fit to die,
But from afar, for he was shy, as blacksmiths often are.

She made a meagre livelihood
From her home-made toffee that she’d sell
Up and down the neighbourhood
To a butterscotch and caramel clientele.
Optimistically, she used to think
That she’d get a husband yet.
She was far too modest to wink,
Too proud to be cocquette, you bet,
Cos she’d got a squint, she was skinny, she was skint.
It never seemed that she so palpably, bizarre, banal
Could ever be a femme fatale.

Time has no time to spare,
And the years passed by as they must.
Spinstership, but with despair,
And the blacksmith sweated with lust, fit to bust,
Until one day she went into the church,
Her simple heart to unclose.
“Lord, don’t leave me in the lurch,
Don’t turn up Your nose, God knows,
I’m not much cop, but me legs go up to the top,
Oh, tell me why You’ve passed me by,
And if You can, Dear Lord on high, get me a man.”

She, she was in for a shock,
For high in the tower, like a bird,
The smith was mending the clock,
And he had overheard every word.
He nearly fell off his perch with delight,
But, stout fellow, he kept his head.
He didn’t snigger as a lot of men might,
But, in the tones of Jehovah instead, he said,
“You’re not bereft, there’s a good lad left,
He’s nothing flash, but still, reliable, staunch and true.
Dear daughter, will, will a blacksmith do?”

The spinster’s eyes opened wide
When she heard the Almighty One.
In a trembling voice, she replied,
“Lord, any man is better than none!”
Whereupon the joyous blacksmith went home at the trot,
Dressed up to kill in a tick.
Went and asked her if she’d have him or not,
And she said "Yes!" damned quick
Because she knew her state, it’s daft to wait
When love is overdue to miss your cue.
Delay or demur, in answer to a little cri de coeur.

This is as much a romance
As all of the others that you get,
And not so much a song and a dance
As Romeo and Juliet, nor as wet,
Because their love didn’t go to their heads,
No call to go berserk.
The spinster went up to bed, and the blacksmith went to work, don’t smirk.
Such loves are few, they were happy, they were true,
They knew their hearts desires, as love requires,
With no deceits, he used his fires to boil up her sweets.


Jake Thackray.

Also by Beth, 'Sand and Water', possibly one of the most emotionally charged songs ever written.

Love songs are too personal to bother quoting, but judging by the responses here a lot of people have some VERY strange ideas about what constitutes a love song; I mean, Hurricane, ffs??????

Farmer1, I have never heard the song you quoted, and I'm not sure I'll look it up, because I can't see how music could make it any better. Gorgeous, simply gorgeous. Rarely does the printed word affect me like that.

Minnie effing Riperton? I have to confess, Capt G. that that particular song ranks waaaay up near the top of my all time hate list, along with (if for different reasons from) I've Never Been to Me by Charlene.

Never mind, I'm sure you have good taste in something else. :8

I do though have impecable taste in red wine and Irish Whiskey, even if i do say so myself. :ok:

7th Feb 2006, 11:07
Hmmm. I believe it was actually a 4 octave range, Capt.G, an unusual attribute to be sure. There was a lady coyly named Yma Sumac back in the 60's who had the same range and sold records on the strength of it. To me those records were the musical equivalent of the Bearded Lady, as was the MR song you mentioned.

"Look, everybody, I've got a 4 octave range! I'm sorry my record company chose a song with dumb lyrics and an even dumber tune to publicise it, but hey, I'm probably going to have only one hit, so let's make it as memorable as possible". Yep, it was memorable all right; I just wish I could forget it. :yuk:

I'll concede on the wine and whisky/ey; I have no taste whatsoever for quality; just a demand for quantity. :ok:

The search is interesting. I attempted to download Mr Thackray's version of The Blacksmith and finished up with that annoying prat who says "I did not have sex with that woman, Miss Lewinsky." So I searched without mentioning an artist, and came up with the usual suspects for a traditional folk song; Loreena McKennit, Pentangle, Maddy Prior, Steeleye Span etc. But no, that song started:

A blacksmith courted me, nine months or better......

Different song, and I'm rather glad. I have no idea how the Jack Thackray song sounds, but I imagine it as rather more modern. Time will tell.

I still think the lyrics are beautiful, and could only have been written by well, someone nice:O . The JB romeos could certainly learn a thing or two from it.

Edited to add: Capt, you name the time, I'll organise Laguna Quays!

Capt.Grumpy
7th Feb 2006, 11:45
Binos, would that be a song by Loreena Mckennitt

A blacksmith courted me nine long months and better,
He stole my heart away, wrote to me a letter,
His hammer all in his hand he looked so brave and clever,
And if I was with my love, I would live forever.

My love's gone across those fields with his cheeks like roses,
My love's gone across those fields gathering sweet posies,
I fear the scorching suns will shine and spoil his beauty,
And if I was with my love, I would do my duty.

Strange news is come from abroad, strange news is carried,
Strange news is come to tell that my love is married,
There is no truth in man, nor in father nor in brother,
And since I have lost my love, I will seek no other.

Binos, sounds good to me, am on leave at the moment off south for a while, might try for about April/ May, Lagoona nice, looks great from the air.

Jake Thackray's songs hardly sound modern, they hail from the seventies and simply consist of Jake playing his guitar and singing.

The Blacksmith and the Toffeemaker wasn't his only contribution to chanson d'amour. Here is anothr love song, of sorts:

Lah Di Dah

Now we're agreed that we're in love
We'll have to face the lah-di-dah,
The eyewash, all of the fancy pantomime.
(I love you very much.)
I'll try love, I'll bill and coo
With your gruesome Aunty Susan
I'll stay calm, I'll play it cool;
I'll let your tetchy uncles
Get my back up, cross my heart.
And I shan't get shirty when they say I look peculiar.

I'll be nice to your mother,
I'll come all over lah-di-dah,
Although she always gets up me nose.
(I love you very much.)
And so I'll Smile and I'll acquiesce
When she invites me to caress
Her scabby cat;
I'll sit still while she knits
And witters, cross my heart,
And I shan't lay a finger on the crabby old batface.

I'll be polite to your daddy,
Frightfully lah-di-dah,
Although he always bores me to my boots.
(I love you very much.)
And so I won't boo and hiss
When he starts to reminisce
I won't drop off, I won't flare up;
The runs he used to score
And how he won the war, cross my heart,
But I'll have to grit my teeth when he goes on about his rupture.

I'll behave at the wedding breakfast
I'll be lah-di-dah
So help me! Hearty toasts and crummy jokes!
(I love you very much.)
So help me, I'll force a laugh
For the flicking photographs
So have no fear, I won't turn tail;
I won't run amuck when the females chuck
Confetti in my ears
And cross my heart, love, I'll keep off the pale ale.

When we're off on our own
No more lah-di-bloody-dah
I promise We just won't have the time
We won't have time for such,
Such fancy pantomimes.
(I'll love you far too much.)

Now, if a person can put up with in-laws like that, it MUST be love...

On a more conventional note than Jake Thackray, one from My Fair Lady, I believe.


SHOW ME

Don’t talk of stars burning above,
If you’re in love, show me.
Tell me no dreams filled with desire,
If you’re on fire, show me.
Here we are together in the middle of the night,
Don’t talk of spring, just hold me tight.
Anyone who’s ever been in love will tell you that
This is no time for a chat.

Haven’t your lips longed for my touch?
Don’t say how much, show me – show me.
Don’t talk of love, lasting through time,
Make me no undying vow, show me now!

Corey's Coming - Harry Chapin.

Old John Joseph was a man with two first names
They left him in the railroad yard when they took away the trains
Only one run a week comes on roaring down that line
So all he's got to worry 'bout is time.

I come by in the evening to hear 'bout where he's been
He says - Come on sit down Kid, where shall I begin?
He starts telling me the stories of the glories of his past
But he always saves the story of his Corey for the last.

And he says - My Corey's coming. No more sad stories coming
My midnight-moonlight-morning-glory's coming aren't you girl?
And like I told you, when she holds you
She enfolds you in her world.

I was quite surprised to find out all the places that he knew
And so I asked the townfolk if his stories were true
They said - Old John was born here, he's lived here all his life
He's never had a woman, let alone a wife.

And very soon you'll find out as you check around
That no one named Corey's ever lived in this town
So I chided the old man 'bout the truth that I had heard
He smiled and said - Reality is only just a word.

I came by one evening but he did not hear my shout
I looked in the window and saw the fire was out
When he would not wake up I forced in the door
And found that Old John Joseph would tell stories no more.

The scene at the graveyard, three of us were there
Me and the gravedigger heard the parson's prayer
He said - We need not grieve for this man,
For we know that God cares!

They put the cold dirt over him and left me on my own
And when at last I looked up I saw I was not alone
So I said - If you're a relative, he had a peaceful end.
She said - My name is Corey - you can say I'm just a friend.

Corey's coming, no more sad stories coming
My midnight-moonlight-morning-glory's coming aren't you girl?
And like I told you, when she holds you
She enfolds you in her world.

So that's the old man's story, I'm glad you came tonight
A busted down old railroad yard sure makes a lonely sight
You may wonder why a young man would work out here alone
Well the job pays enough to keep some flesh on my bones.

And I confess I get to missing the old man a bit
And there's one other reason I guess I should admit -

Can't you see my Corey's coming, no more sad stories coming
My midnight-moonlight-morning-glory's coming aren't you girl?
And like he told me, when she holds me
She enfolds me in her world.

He was small and baggy trousered, he was nondescript and shy,
But in his breast there burned a sacred flame.


For women melted and surrendered when they looked into his eyes
(Little Billy Kershaw was the name, by the way,
He worked as a country ploughman, so they say.)

;)

At the risk of turning this into a Jake thread for the benefit of just Farmer, me and perhaps Binos, may I also suggest Jake's 'To Do With You', which was presumably written in honour of his long suffering missus:

There may be better-cooking, better-looking women,
Better-slung and better at buns than you.
And if I were a man for simple things,
Like flawless skin and bigger dinners,
My dearest, I might have no more to do with you

I won't reproduce the rest to save bandwidth...

BALIX no worries I can't believe it has gone to three pages since I was on last night.

There have been some songs mentioned I had forgotten about completely and one Eric Clapton which bought back some amazing memories of a wonderful 30th birthday spent in a beautiful city over looking the moon light river with an pianist playing in the corner!

BALIX,

Now that's a new one for me. Still the same old Jake. Napster, here I come, hopefully to buy something priceless for 79p. But you're right, of course, let's think of lesser mortals.

Like:

THE LAST FAREWELL

There's a ship lies rigged and ready in the harbour.
Tomorrow for Old England she sails,
Far away from your land of endless sunshine
To my land full of rainy skies and gales.
And I shall be aboard that ship tomorrow,
Though my heart is full of tears at this farewell,
For you are beautiful, and I have loved you dearly,
More dearly than the spoken word can tell.

The Hollies "I'm alive" was the top song & the Sound of Music was the top album. At least Bill Hailey was born on the same day!

Lionel Richie – “Three times a Lady”

Thanks for the times
That you've given me
The memories are all in my mind
And now that we've come
To the end of our rainbow
There's something
I must say out loud
You're once, twice
Three times a lady
Yes you're once twice
Three times a lady

And i love you
When we are together
The moments i cherish
With every beat of my heart
To touch you to hold you
To feel you to need you
There's nothing to keep us apart
You're once twice
Three times a lady
And i love you
I love you

To my special Lady ;)

I did a similar thread several years ago and most people came back with a similar group of songs only one has been mentioned here. It is strange how tastes have changed and Messers Blunt and Grey are everywhere. Although Ipersonally like the Go Go Dolls - Iris, I could never discribe it as one of the greats. I do love Gerry and The Pacemakers - "You Will Never Walk Alone" when I return home - it is a real symbol of a city and the love for your brother.

My three have got to be - because I always think of a certain woman who is very special to me when I play these songs, (very rarely as they are kept in a special place in my heart).
Desree' - Kissing You
Roberta Flack - The first time I ever saw your face
The Beatles - Something (Frank Sinatra once said it was the most bueatiful song he had ever heard)
