It's A Four Letters Word (L.O.V.E)

While Having a Great Conversation

Ola. i know it's not a Valentine's Day, but i feel like talking about Love. Yep, maybe some of you guessed it right. That four letters word are indeed LOVE. I actually believe that music is a universal media for expressing your feeling especially love. and this time i would like to talk about some memorable songs related to love topic whether it's on its downfall or on its rise time.

Nazareth - Love Hurts

the lyric of this song is truly heartbreaking. it feels like whoever wrote this song had experienced the worst side of being in love with someone. 

Love hurts, love scars, love wounds
And mars, any heart
Not tough or strong enough
To take a lot of pain, take a lot of pain

Just from looking at those lyrics above, i can tell that whoever wrote it has been through a lot. he has lost faith in love yet love is the most wonderful thing in the world.

Bryan Adams - Have you ever really love a woman

Every word of its lyric are magical, sweet and honest. you can easily agree with his words whether you're a boy or a girl. Guitar strums at the beginning really bring some romantic atmosphere and the entrance of Bryan's sexy voice really adds the missing puzzle. of course it's the lyric that really speaks to our heart. Honestly, if a guy sings me this song, it would be very hard not to pay attention. In my opinion, it is far from cheesy.

Michael Buble - Everything

i admit, there's a lot of lovey dovey, love related songs came from this singer. But what really caught my attention was this song. just check out this optimistic and honest lyric :

And in this crazy life, and through these crazy times
It's you, it's you, you make me sing.
You're every line, you're every word, you're everything.

And I can't believe, uh that I'm your man,
And I get to kiss you baby just because I can.
Whatever comes our way, ah we'll see it through,
And you know that's what our love can do.

this song, this lyric somehow makes us believe in the existence of love.

Maroon 5 - Infatuation

This song are not the famous one from this band. Maybe some of you never heard of this one. me neither, before. Until one guy asked me to hear this because he said that this song really explains his situation at that time. So, this is more of a personal related pick. But objectively speaking, this song speaks about an infatuation. It is the state of being carried away by unreasoned passion or love. But in this song, this dude can't have this girl because it is an unrequited love.

Blink182 - Going Away to College

the first time hearing this song was in Junior High. I didn't really get the meaning of it nor feel the same way. Basically this song is about a guy that's gonna leave his girlfriend for academic purpose. And never thought i would experience it first hand. Anyway, farewell sucks, especially with your loved ones. But that's life.
I never thought Blink182 had this sensible side in them. because i think these lyrics are not cheesy at all, actually it's kinda sad once you truly understand them. And long distance relationship is a tough call. No one is gonna make it, if they don't have enough love and trust...and respect.
just check out some of their lyrics :

Westlife - Flying Without Wings

You know, English is not my native language. Of course LOL. So when i heard this song in my Elementary years, i didn't know what it meant. And i remember asking my mom for the translation. And we were discussing it. But still with my mom translating it, i still didn't really get what it meant until, i was Karaoke-ing with my friends then and seeing the lyric popped out and i realized that this song is so effing sweet.

"who can't deny the joy it brings, when you've found that special thing, you're flying without wings".

Someone really did tell me one time that he feels like flying when i said i love him. I never really experience that 'flying' sensation, maybe i had but i just didn't realize. but i was so happy knowing that i could make someone feel that way :)

The Script - The Man Who Can't Be Moved

Ok. This is a personal pick as well, because a guy asked me to listen to this song because he said that he feels that way at that time. Truly this song talks about dedication. Dedication of a man that is very very sure that this particular girl is a love of his life. So, he will wait at the same spot (whether it's a literally meaning or not) and he thought it would be easier for this girl to find him. Because he won't budge and he'll stay. 

Well, after reading my list, i came to a conclusion. Love is weird, it makes you stronger sometimes but it also makes you vulnerable as hell. But no human being will survive without love, because it is the most wonderful thing in the world. Before i get too sensitive and cheesy, i will stop :)

Oh! here's one of my photos taken in Bali last week. Just wanna brag it a little. Please don't hate me.
