I am being rather self-indulgent and choosing a few of my favourite love songs this month. Why not hey?
There are a multitude of love songs out there. They are two a penny. Some are better than others, I am sure you’ll agree. There are the dire, desperately dramatic dirges. There are the soppy, the hoppy, the boppy and the poppy tracks about love and all it’s excitement. Then there are the simple, heartfelt, exquisite refrains. I count the song I am featuring today as amongst the latter.
Today’s theme for Bee’s music festival “Love Is In Da Blog” is:
A Song about love that lasts
Love that lasts is the best! It is real love surely! Love that has faced all sorts of challenges and has endured. Love that lasts is precious, and I think most of us long for it and admire couples who have supported each other through thick and thin. For some, they have sadly lost their partner, and their love is still going strong. It’s absolutely touching that humans can feel love like that.
My choice of song today has become one of my firm favourite love songs. It was originally a track from The Waterboys. Ellie Goulding also covered it, but she sounds as if she is twelve, and to me a child-like voice does not convey the depth of meaning. However, Kristina Train packs a lot of emotion into her stunning voice. I just love her version of these endearing and beautiful sentiments.
