The QOL Love Song Compilation Album

Postby JLP » Sun Aug 20, 2017 12:21 pm

Pinched from fd's excellent rock compilation idea.

Again I am going for a song hardly anyone will have heard. A simple beautiful song written by Steve Harley and Jim Cregan. It is a song dedicated to Steve's wife and it is probably the song I wish I could have written. I saw him perform this live a couple of years ago when my life was in a bad place and I actually wept whilst he sang the song.

The travesty is that if it had been written and released by someone like Adele or Ed Sheeran it woulsd have been number one for weeks.

A Friend For Life Steve Harley.

It had to be one of his. Too many love songs. :) But it had to be the one covered by so many others. But it's his, and he wrote it so I have to. MOSAT's.

Yeah, I'm lost in the night
The icy wind is howling out your name
The moon has gone behind the cloud again
And I can't stand to live another day
'Cause my bluebird went away

Would it save you a lot of time if I just gave up and went mad now?

I don't even know if this is actually a love song, but Jesus Christ, it breaks my heart in two. I don't know why, but it's genius, pure and simple.

Maybe we need one of these for sad songs!

I'm still waiting for someone to cover this and have a smash hit.

Not sure if this is really a love song, but one of my all time favourites.

Thought I posted in here yesterday actually. You Needed Me by Anne Murray. Maybe the first song I ever knew outside of lullabies, kiddy music and it's been a touchstone all these years.
~Godspeed little one~
~Don't talk about angels
Or how I'll be saved
I'm no coward
But I'm not that brave
Rags are blowing
Rain's getting near
I'm done with running
And it's getting dark in here~

~Sleep in peace old friend for me you'll never die~

Jeff Lynne wrote some classic songs, and amongst them were a few great love songs, none better than this, written i believe about his first wife.
