    Ah yes. A sweet little love song. You can’t beat them.

    Mine is the song we had played as our first dance at my wedding 17 years ago or so.

    It’s ‘I Will’ from The Beatles White Album.

    A sweet lovely little melody from Paul McCartney and was meant just as that. A lovely little love song. Lyrics are perfect and not complicated as love can indeed be. Or get. So for the day that’s in it, have a listen and enjoy!

    Zero 7 & Sia – Destiny

    A modern take on the love song. Sia longs for her lover while watching porn in a hotel. It’s sensual and heartfelt with just the right amount of sleaziness.

    “When I’m weak, I draw strength from you
    And when you’re lost I know how to change your mood
    And when I’m down you breathe life over me
    Even though we’re miles apart we are each other’s destiny”

    The Look Of Love – Dusty Springfield singing the ultimate love song by the incomparable Bacharach and David.

    “Let’s take a lovers vow and seal it with a kiss.
    I can hardly wait to hold you feel my arms around you, how long I have waited
    Waited just to love you now that I have found you, don’t ever go.”

    But really, when it comes to the slow set and the clingers, its all about Laura Branigan for this 80’s girl, I had the hair, the big shouldered belaro jacket, the leggings – the lot, except the voice of course,

    and the man

    Ti Amo live btw

    This has become my anthem

    Love is Mystical by the Cold War Kids

    https://youtu.be/Qbe3oSfUG00

    Hear the organ, listen to the drums

    “And when my heart won’t break
    An empty space between my lungs
    And when my knees won’t shake
    I’ll drink to find inspiration
    ‘Cause I’m a red blooded man
    But I can’t see behind the sun (I can’t see behind the sun)
    A supernatural plan
    Is coming to meet me now”

    And its dedicated to Simon…you are a free spirit pal and I’ve learnt to accept it, brought me some wisdom too x

    Neil E – you feel the same, distance

    Who says we cannot love multiple people..!

    George Michael – Jesus to a child

    George’s tribute to his boyfriend Anselmo Feleppa who died two years after they met.

    “Loveless and cold,
    With your last breath,
    You saved my soul,
    You smiled at me,
    Like Jesus to a child.
    And what have I learned
    From all these tears
    I’ve waited for you all those years
    And just when it began
    He took you away….”

    Just beautiful & heartbreaking all at once

      When he sang that in Dublin a few years back, I cried. I’ve never cried before or since at a gig and I didn’t cry when he died, but that song… devastating.

    First dance I had with my crush was the theme from Hill Street Blues. As an avowed ABBA fan, my favourite song of theirs is The Day Before you Came.
    But despite everything life has thrown at me, I remain a committed hopeful romantic. For reasons I cannot explain, ever since I heard it as a child and despite an evolving understanding of music, my favourite song is, was, and remains The Real Thing and You To Me Are Everything. I sang it to my best friend, who was a girl, in the year it came out, just before we moved home and came to the town I now live in and call home. Everytime I hear it I still think of her, even if it was puppy love.

    For you, Jennifer Horgan:

    Saturdays are the Greatest

    A woman yearns for the perfect day with her imagined lover or the one just lost.
    Sublime.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RRFWcKcWhEI

    And the finest ‘Real Love’ song as written by Bob Zimmerman…
    Is Your Love In Vain
    Unfortunately not available on YT, so…

    Verse III
    All right, I’ll take a chance, I will fall in love with you
    If I’m a fool you can have the night, you can have the morning too
    Can you cook and sew, make flowers grow?
    Do you understand my pain?
    Are you willing to risk it all?
    Or is your love in vain?

    As a young fella I was a big Kris Kristofferson fan and although the love song wasn’t his most common theme, this one was hard not to like:
    When I Loved Her.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VlwP2jFBKgw

    I’d like to dedicate it to a couple of lads and lassies who shared a loyalty to K.K. and his music; back in those innocent, less-critical days. We swore we’d always be pals…and more…and would gather whenever he toured Ireland to try and relieve those earlier days.

    It would have been hard to imagine then; but we’re not even acquaintances anymore.

    Dance Me To The End of Love by the great Mr Cohen.

    Dedicated to the husband, who can’t dance, but will still twirl me round the living room to this later. For all the he comes home with no flowers, chocolates or card for me, but always with a something special for our little lady.

      That’s a great choice milly, a fabulous singer and songwriter and much underrated poet. The first concert I ever attended was Leonard Cohen at the Stadium in 1976 and I’ve loved him ever since.

      For Anne.
      With Annie gone,
      whose eyes to compare
      With the morning sun?

      Not that I did compare,
      But I do compare
      Now that she’s gone.

    Gentlemen, love is not for the faint of heart and if you lack confidence you end up like Billy Bragg, The Saturday Boy
    In the end it took me a dictionary
    To find out the meaning of ‘unrequited ‘

    Whereas Bruce teaches us that:
    It’s a long, long road
    And a thin, thin line
    But I want you to know
    I’ll walk it for you any time :
    Tougher Than The Rest
