Five love songs for February 18, 2014 I’ve really enjoyed the songs posted by fellow FRs these past few days, so on the First Monday of Lent, if you’re still game, I give you 5 more love songs, and ask you to give me some of yours in return, (please include a link to a performance of the song if it exists, and if you’re inclined, the name of the composer. If you're really moved, like beaversmom, include the lyrics :-)). 1. La La Means I Love You---The Delfonics (Try singing it like Nick Cage did) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C_LORPebWG0 2. Nature Boy—Nat King Cole http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Iq0XJCJ1Srw (written by Eden Ahbez, one of the strangest songwriters of the pre-Hippie era. He was a beatnik poet, a proto-Hippie with long hair 3. The Secret Garden---Quincy Jones (Written by Rod Temperton) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xjLjMSut_JU 4. Hello---Lionel Richie http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b_ILDFp5DGA (If you’ve never seen the youtube of this, here’s your chance). 5. When You Love Someone---Sammy Kershaw (My all time favorite written by Keith Stegall) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NoQgI-z7kzU

Let’s try again. That’s better. Don’t know why that happens.

Almost every song Nat King Cole sang was a love song. He died young @ 45. Nick Cage singing La La Means I Love You is a classic, and I’ve posted it here. Quincy Jones is a national treasure. This piece features Michael Jackson and Barry White—just beautiful. Hello by Lionel Richie is a lovely tune, then when you watch his video of it, you get chills. Last is When You Love Someone by Sammy Kershaw. I never get tired of this song.

1. La La Means I Love You-—The Delphonics http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C_LORPebWG0
2. Nature Boy—Nat King Cole http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Iq0XJCJ1Srw

Hello :)

Sting - Fields Of Gold
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KLVq0IAzh1A&;
“Fields Of Gold”

You’ll remember me when the west wind moves
Upon the fields of barley
You’ll forget the sun in his jealous sky
As we walk in fields of gold

So she took her love
For to gaze awhile
Upon the fields of barley
In his arms she fell as her hair came down
Among the fields of gold

Will you stay with me, will you be my love
Among the fields of barley
We’ll forget the sun in his jealous sky
As we lie in fields of gold

See the west wind move like a lover so
Upon the fields of barley
Feel her body rise when you kiss her mouth
Among the fields of gold
I never made promises lightly
And there have been some that I’ve broken
But I swear in the days still left
We’ll walk in fields of gold
We’ll walk in fields of gold

Many years have passed since those summer days
Among the fields of barley
See the children run as the sun goes down
Among the fields of gold
You’ll remember me when the west wind moves
Upon the fields of barley
You can tell the sun in his jealous sky
When we walked in fields of gold
When we walked in fields of gold
When we walked in fields of gold

Mumford & Sons - I Will Wait (Live at Red Rocks)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rGKfrgqWcv0

“I Will Wait”

Well, I came home
Like a stone
And I fell heavy into your arms
These days of darkness
Which we’ve known
Will blow away with this new sun

But I’ll kneel down,
Wait for now
And I’ll kneel down,
Know my ground

And I will wait, I will wait for you
And I will wait, I will wait for you

So break my step
And relent
Well, you forgave and I won’t forget
Know what we’ve seen
And him with less
Now in some way shake the excess

‘Cause I will wait, I will wait for you
And I will wait, I will wait for you
And I will wait, I will wait for you
And I will wait, I will wait for you

Now I’ll be bold
As well as strong
And use my head alongside my heart
So tame my flesh
And fix my eyes
A tethered mind freed from the lies

And I’ll kneel down,
Wait for now
I’ll kneel down,
Know my ground

Raise my hands
Paint my spirit gold
And bow my head
Feel my heart slow

‘Cause I will wait, I will wait for you
And I will wait, I will wait for you
And I will wait, I will wait for you
And I will wait, I will wait for you

Hey, I like it. Megadeth has produced some great love ballads also. Someone posted Patti Smith the other day, (was that you?) Great love song, but she scares the h*ll of me.

"1. La La Means I Love You---The Delfonics"

Don't you mean: "La-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la means I love you"? (Sung in a downward cascade through the scale.)

Wasn’t me but it could’ve been.

Love Patti.

[not scared of her at all]

She hangs out with BOC and has sang on some of their albums.

OKay, one last one for today (I swear). :) This is one from the Y/millennial generation. This song holds very special place in my heart. The lyrics are gorgeous to me.

Death Cab for Cutie - Soul Meets Body (video) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uizQVriWp8M

I want to live where soul meets body
And let the sun wrap its arms around me
And bathe my skin in water cool and cleansing
And feel, feel what its like to be new

Cause in my head there’s a greyhound station
Where I send my thoughts to far off destinations
So they may have a chance of finding a place
where they’re far more suited than here

And I cannot guess what we’ll discover
When we turn the dirt with our palms cupped like shovels
But I know our filthy hands can wash one another’s
And not one speck will remain

And I do believe it’s true
That there are roads left in both of our shoes
But if the silence takes you
Then I hope it takes me too
So brown eyes I hold you near
Cause you’re the only song I want to hear
A melody softly soaring through my atmosphere

Where soul meets body
Where soul meets body
Where soul meets body

And I do believe it’s true
That there are roads left in both of our shoes
But if the silence takes you
Then I hope it takes me too
So brown eyes I hold you near
Cause you’re the only song I want to hear
A melody softly soaring through my atmosphere
A melody softly soaring through my atmosphere
A melody softly soaring through my atmosphere
A melody softly soaring through my atmosphere

Each time I hear this song, I am taken back to 1996 and a conference I attended in Baltimore. Late one night while having a beer in the hotel lounge, an asian fellow was playing piano and he did this song.He had difficulty with the “l” in fields and gold.
