Story Of A Seed said...

This is one of my favorites, it is in Punjabi and is quite old!
A man says that he is going to faraway lands and the woman sings asking him not to go.

Gen said...

At this moment in time I love Lykke Li's cover of Will you still love me tommorow.

Vivi said...

"Take it With Me" by Tom Waits. I'm all about heartbreaking love songs.

Michelle said...

Love your work Holly and I also love "You and Me" by the Dave Matthews Band.

Lady Lux said...

'She' the Elvis Costello version, makes me want to cry evry time, (in a good way though) and I absolutely adore your work :)

LiquidBrick said...

It is a bit gloomy maybe, but I like it so much: Surprise ice by the Kings of Convenience (a Norwegian band).

reilly said...

I tend to like those tragic 50s love songs, like "Last Kiss"

only daydreaming said...

"thank you" by led zeppelin

Michele from Pipi La La said...

I adore your work and I over the moon to have a chance to win something by you!

My favourite is also Tracy Chapman's the Promise. ☺

Sarah said...

Lovely work--I see earthworms!

Just discovered the band Mumford & Sons and am (to put it mildly) obsessed. "The Banjolin Song" is a great love song and I'm digging "Winter Winds" too (maybe not so much a love song as a song about mortality, but, you know, po-tay-to/po-tah-to and all that).

BrittanButterfly said...

wow, that is actually a really tough question since there are so many good songs about different types of love...
I do really love Emiliana Tourini's "Big Jumps" and also "Alison" by Elvis Costello

Felicity said...

I'm sure that people will dispute that it's a love song but my heart is always opened when I hear Edith Piaf singing "Je ne regrette rien".

I have lots of favorite love songs, but the first one that pops to mind is Diamonds and Rust by Joan Baez. So sad and sweet.

"At Last" by Etta James

Easy Golly! It would have to be a Sinatra song. I'm especially partial to Night and Day.

The song that immediately came to mind for me was "Just the Way You Are" by Billy Joel. I can't think of a more fundamental expression of love than being loved for who you are.

What I love about your art is that you are expressing to the world just who you are.
