In honour of Valentine’s Day:
“Because of you, I’m running out of reasons to cry” – Shakira, Underneath Your Clothes
“A husband who loved me so enthusiastically that that love jumped from the page like an overeager Labrador, knocking over anyone who happened to be giggling over one of his books.” – Salon‘s Rebecca Traister on Calvin Trillin and his wife, Alice .
“I want to stand with you on a mountain, I want to bathe with you in the sea. I want to lay like this forever until the sky falls down on me” – Savage Garden, Truly Madly Deeply
“I could stay awake, just to hear you breathing” – Aerosmith, Don’t Wanna Close My Eyes
“There is no remedy for love but to love more” – Thoreau
“You don’t marry someone you can live with – you marry the person who you cannot live without” – Unknown
“I love you, baby, and if it’s quite alright, I need you, baby, to warm a lonely night…” – Frankie Valli, Can’t Take My Eyes Off Of You
- “The greatest thing you’ll ever learn is just to love and be loved in return.” – Nat King Cole
And to finish off, rather than a sickly, sugar-laden love song, I give you one of my favourite one-hit wonders ever.
