Neat...

Some good songs on that list (I "Nights In White Satin"-such a gorgeous song). "Unchained Melody", "Wonderful Tonight"-also good.

And having "With Or Without You" on that list makes it all the better. .

LOL at "Without You" and "With Or Without You" being on the list!

"Unchained Melody","WOWY" and "Nights In White Satin" are all great songs!

Amusing, as I wouldn't consider WOWY a "love" song in the usual sense. I see it more being about confusion, about being torn. On the one hand, he (the generic "he" here) has a love for someone, but on the other, the someone has done something that by its nature makes that love impossible. What is that something? "Sleight of hand" - dishonesty.

I'm inclined to agree with you...WOWY is a painful song. However, one not listening closely to the lyrics may not pick up on that.
