fantastic love songs

i can't stop posting this song, cause it's... one of the best for me at the moment.

rem - be mine

i never thought of this as funny
It speaks another world to me
I wanna be your easter bunny
I wanna be your christmas tree.

I’ll strip the world that you must live in
Of all it’s godforsaken greed.
I’ll ply the tar of your feathers.
I’ll pluck the thorns out of your feet.
You and me.
You and me.
You and me.

And if I choose your sanctuary.
I’ll want to wash you with my hair.
I’ll want to drink of sacred fountains
And find the richess hidden there.

I’ll eat the lotus and peyote.
I’ll want to hear the caged-bird sing.
I’ll want the secrets of the temple.
I’ll want the finger with the ring.

You and me.
You and me.
You and me.

And if you made me your religion.
I’ll give all the room you need.
I’ll be the drawing of your breath.
I’ll be the cup if you should bleed.

I’ll be the sky above the ganges
I’ll be the vast and stormy sea.
I’ll be the lights that guide you inland.
I’ll be the visions you will see.

Visions you will see.

You will see.
You will see.
You and me.

You and me.

You and me.

-------

of course it works as a lovely sad song too. actually, that's exactly what it is. a sad song about being happy.

i'm shaking and i can't stop, guys!

was there a video for this song, by chance?

Amazing song! It's probably my favourite from NAIHF. As far as I know, there's no official video, which is rather odd, because it could've been a big hit if it were pushed along. But, yes, the lyrics, and the sound of this song get me every time.

No official video, but there is this: it's Thom Yorke subbing in for Michael on the vocals. I wish it wasn't so short.

great song by a great band
(^ about zoomy's post)

some of my other favorite love songs are Bright Eye's "First day of my life"..
the line "I'm glad I didn't die before I met you" to me is freaking brilliant cause it's so simple & pure.

The Smith's 'There is a light that never goes out' is pure romanticism to me, I'm sure it's debatable whether or not it's a love song, but I've always seen it as one. " To die by your side well the pleasure, the privilege is mine"

Springsteen's "If I should fall behind" is another favorite of mine, because it balances the reality and difficulties of love with love itself, which is supposed to be patient and kind. "..And I'll wait for you If I should fall behind wait for me"

I love the entire Cold Roses album by Ryan Adams and one of my favorite tracks is "Life is beautiful"...especially the line "Cause if I don't believe in love...then I don't believe in you...and I do"

Harvest Moon by Neil Young is one of the most beautiful songs ever, the lyrics, his voice, the melody, it always puts me at ease and I can always picture me dancing with my boyfriend outside at night to this song.



and as cliche' as it may sound The Beach Boy's "God only knows" is simply a pop love song at it's best.

I don't know if it's a love song but there was a song by Depeche Mode I believe it was "but not tonight". It was good for that time period.Maybe if they remade it..

My all time favorite love song:

Daniel Lanois - Rocky World

My hands are wrapped in your raven hair
in the faded picture on the back stair
We were narrow, we were steady, trembling and ready
to give it hell in this rocky world

You said do I look like I could be a strong mother
and raise the good side of a young daughter
In the hotel Shangri La, let me tell you
I've been thinking of her in this rocky world

Chicago is heavy but I can't turn around
I'm smuggling that whiskey over flesh and pound
Michigan I worry and Suzy I'm sorry
that I lost you out there in the rocky world

Would you build me a building, a chapel out there
at the top of the hill in the still blue air
Near the weather vane, by the track and train
I'll be looking for you in the rocky world

She's turning twenty, and out on the make
Pounding the blacktop with a habit to shake
She's looking for a manger in the eyes of a stranger
down in the streets of a rocky world

Jenny has religion, she sinks in a chair
She's made a decision to color her hair
The black man cut the sugar cane and she watches the rain
in a building away from the rocky world

Yeah, I'll tell you something I'll never forget
the sight of you in the sillhouette
Outside Sault. Ste. Marie, ah you really threw me
when you pulled me down to your rocky bed

In a crowded room, I stood there empty
looking for salvation and glory be
When a shot turned my head and I saw you instead
walking into my rocky world.

I love this song.

I almost posted the lyrics in my journal the same day you did.

The video is great too




Another great R.E.M. love song, in my opinion is You.




I love you crazy, just keep on.
I love you madly, just keep watch.
You wipe my lips,
You turn me on.
My attentions are turned to you.
You. You. You.
