Question of the Day

Nicked from PSoTD: What "love songs" do you really love, or really hate?

I like love songs that attempt to communicate the feeling of loving someone in the awkward sort of ways that people attempt to communicate that feeling in real life. I'm particularly fond of Ben Folds' "The Luckiest" and The Smiths' "There Is a Light That Never Goes Out," which has the great lyric "And if a double-decker bus / Crashes into us / To die by your side / Is such a heavenly way to die / And if a ten-ton truck / Kills the both of us / To die by your side / Well, the pleasure, the privilege, is mine."

I love that.
