• My Love For Love Songs

    Recently, I've come to terms with myself and the fact that I can't get enough of a good love song. I'm a hopeless romantic. It doesn't help that I don't have much of a love life, at least one with full-frontal nudity.

    Basically, I like to fantasize that, someday, I'll be able to listen to one of these songs and think to myself, "This is how I feel about a certain person". That's only a half-truth, though - I do think that sometimes, when I'm in love with one of the many people I will never make it with.

    I should clarify this first: I'm talking about songs that deal with love. None necessarily ones that speak of a love/relationship that's not flawed. Ones with sort of a more human approach to the whole messy matter. To be extremely specific, I like songs where the lyrics express how enamoured he/she is with someone. Ones that are sentimental in the most horrid ways are good too.

    This is one of the reasons I adore Billy Bragg and Neil Finn/Crowded House so much. …
