OK my blog post and entry into the competition... I have to list my 3 favourite love songs with a 200 word summary (of each I think - I am checking on this so post might get modified). So here goes:
My favourite category of CDs on Price Minister is the reggae section as this is my favourite type of music - http://www.priceminister.co.uk/nav/Music_CD/f3/Reggae is where you can find it too.
1) Has got to be You're The First, The Last, My Everything by the amazing and much missed musical wonder, Barry White. Why? Because it's a song that defines love - about meeting that one special person you know you are going to spend the rest of your life with - it just makes you want to curl up into your partners arms the minute you hear it. It describes the feelings you get when you fall in love with someone - "You're my reality, yet I'm lost in a dream" - it's that feeling - that it's just a dream you don't want to wake up from because you are so happy.
2) A very close second is (Your Love Keeps Lifting Me) Higher and Higher - the fabulous sound of the much missed Jackie Wilson. Why? This is a really feel good song - not just about love though it is uplifting and feel good in life in general - every time you hear it, you can't help but sing and dance along as it is so upbeat. Again, in terms of love, it is a song about meeting that someone who just completes you and makes your life better. Describing how you once felt down and lonely - "Now once I was down hearted, disappointment was my closest friend, but then you came and it soon departed, and you know, he never showed his face again" - maybe that you'd had some disappointment in past relationships maybe and were feeling lonely until you met your special person.
3) My third may seem a little out of place but I will explain later - Boom, Boom, Boom, Boom by The Vengaboys is my third choice. Why? Well, me & the hubby (then boyfriend) used to listen to this a lot when we first met and moved in together back in 1999. It's not at all related to love in any way, and maybe a little dirty sounding rather than romantic ("Boom, boom, boom, boom, I want you in my room, let's spend the night together, from now until forever" and "Boom, boom, boom, boom, I want a double boom, let's spend the night together, together in my room"), but hey, I was only 16 and him 19 at the time, so you have to forgive us lol. There really is no accounting for taste in music at that age! To be honest, I was a massive fan of The Vengaboys, but I think the amount I used to play this song over and over may have annoyed Paul at the time lol - I think he started off liking it and ended up sick of it!
