There's Something About Us... (Love Songs)

Drawing inspiration from how dull the new Starbucks Valentine's compilation is...what are everyone's favourite love songs of heart ache, break, new love, old love and that big bit inbetween.

My personal favourites:

YouTube - Daft Punk-something about us

YouTube - She Sends Kisses (Wrens)

(just a great set of lyrics as well as being an amazing song)

YouTube - tegan and sara - my number

The best love songs I guess tend to be the most twisted.

Anyway any other top suggestions?

Please try not to make them all too depressing though

she sends kisses
some signed ‘with Love, Beth oooooo xxxxx’
she sends kisses
same old beth - some signed 666
our shore town knockdown sure was fun
yeah, white trash, what have you
I fired replies back gun by gun
past Seven Wrecks I read your four answers: 1. your move 2. I’m tres involved 3. move on 4. love, Beth
I walk it down
this tourist town
‘just thought I’d’ calls
just friends
she sends kisses
and all at once back doors blow open
she sends….
in envelopes stamped w/ ‘Hope & Hearts’ - ripped right open
she sends…
but I’m corrupt - I wrote back good luck

The song just swells when it gets to the Hope & Hearts ripped open part. Quite immense. Plus I love how it's referenced in another song by The Wrens, Ex-Girl Collection.

Ten tons against me and you've gone
I put your favorite records on
And sit around
It spins around
And you're around again



Great song, LJT.

As far as the Cure goes I would actually say Just Like Heaven is their best straight up love song....but that's just me.

One of the most romantic songs (in my twisted sense of romantic) I know is John Hiatt's Have A Little Faith In Me. To me, this song is about pure, unrequired love. No strings attached, to just have a little faith and I'll do anything.



YouTube - John Hiatt - Have A Little Faith

YouTube - Stevie Wonder - Ribbon In The Sky

i can't find the bob marley version in vid form so the annie lennox version will have to do.
YouTube - Annie Lennox - Waiting in Vain

YouTube - Bruce Springsteen - Born to Run

YouTube - The Cure - Untitled (Version Original)

YouTube - Sting - When We Dance

so much more, but these will do for now.

It pleases me to see The Cure mentioned so frequently, as most people seem to write them off with the ridiculous and inaccurate "depressing goth music" stereotype.

'Halo' is the most "lovey" song by The Cure I can think of, one of their best b-sides in my opinion. (Join the Dots Disc 3 for Bono_212, or anyone else who has it)

You know the reason it took me so long to get into them is that I didn't understand this whole "goth" thing about them, when all I knew was stuff like Love Song, Mint Car, and Friday I'm in Love. It ended up turning me OFF the band. Then when I started listening and saw just how many different range of moods they could cover? Amazing. Which is pretty much why they're a perfect band for me.

I think Halo was one of the tracks I marked on last.fm as loved when I listened to Join The Dots. I'll give it another listen.

I just think with the lyrics to Just Like Heaven, combined with the story behind it, it's just a completely romantic in a slightly innocent way song, and I don't know any other songs like that.

the cure's "just like heaven" and u2's "drowning man" are 2 understated and underrated lovesongs.
