Thread Name: Greatest love songs...and love generally
Subject: RE: Greatest love songs...and love generally
REading the song suggestions has been fun, and interesting.

One reason it's been interesting is that so few of these songs have a real history. This isn't to say that I don't like, or am not moved, by these songs but I wonder why we respond to so few of the older, traditional songs. Most of us know lots of traditional ballads about love and death, murders, and violence of other sorts but few traditional love songs.

As for my favorites, I would like to add, "Daisy a Day".
