Friday random ten: Love, exciting and new

The letter L, like the letter I, offered several possible options for songs beginning with the same word. I thought I’d stick with the classics this time.

1. Love Hurts – Nazareth
2. Love In A Refrigerator Box – Austin Lounge Lizards
3. Love Is A Losing Game – Amy Winehouse
4. Love Is Teasin’ – Marianne Faithfull and The Chieftains
5. Love Me Tender – Elvis Presley
6. Love On The Wrong Side Of Town – Southside Johnny and the Jukes
7. Love Reign O’er Me – The Who
8. Love Shack – The B-52’s
9. Love Struck Baby – Stevie Ray Vaughan
10. Love Will Keep Us Together – The Captain and Tennille

I have way more than this, but these were some of the more interesting ones. And I can’t use a title like this without taking it to its logical end. Come on, people, sing it with me!

We owe the 1970s a debt we can never truly repay. What do you love on your iPod this week?

Entire song list report: Started with “Angel Of Harlem” by U2, ended with “Baby’s Got The Car Keys”, by Trout Fishing In America, which is song #223, or 89 songs since last week. The last “A” song was “Azure”, by the Tufts Beelzebubs, and the first “B” song was “B Minor”, by lanterna. Did I mention that just to make this even more obsessively anal-retentive I’m also giving star ratings to each song? I figure if there ever was a time for it, this would be it. If I ever decide to start adding tags, I do hope someone will stage an intervention.

    Hey, Kuff, are you a longtime fan of the Bubs, or did you “discover” them (as I did) via The Sing Off?

    Ouch. Decisions, decisions. I have 54 entries in the library which begin with that word, some half-a-dozen of which are dupes. Okay, samples:

    Love and Marriage, Frank Sinatra
    Love Changes Everything, Sarah Brightman
    Love Child, Diana Ross & The Supremes
    Love Has No Pride, Bonnie Raitt
    Love Is A Rose, Linda Ronstadt
    Love Is Here And Now You’re Gone, The Supremes
    Love Is Just A Four-Letter Word, Joan Baez
    (Love Is) The Tender Trap, Frank Sinatra
    Love Me Do, The Beatles
    Love Me Like A Man, Bonnie Raitt

    And I just noticed this rather threatening title in that group:
    Love And Peace Or Else, U2

  3. Crispy – One of the things Tiffany brought into the marriage was a copy of the ‘Bubs “Fourteen” CD, from which this track came. I was not aware of the Sing Off, but now I need to check it out. Thanks!

    3. Soldier of Love – Donny Osmand (1989)
    4. Power of Love – King’s X (1988)

    9. So This Is Love – Van Halen (1981)
    10. Guilty of Love – Whitesnake (1984)

    Not without some coincidence, the average year of these songs is 1986.
