Thread Name: Greatest love songs...and love generally
Subject: RE: Greatest love songs...and love generally
From an earlier generation - I have always been touched by the poignant "If I Loved You" from "Carousel." I had the privilege of hearing Gordon MacRae do that one in person many years back. It sent chills through me. It still does.

I also like a couple of Travis Edmonson compositions, "Cloudy Summer Afternoon" and "Truly Do." Bud & Travis also did some wonderful old Mexican Bolero songs that have beautiful melodies - seranades of the old school; "Rayito de Luna" and "Malaguena Salerosa" are two of the best known examples.
