    This one could keep us busy a long while.

    Any song with the word "Love" in the title/lyrics.

    "I Love a Parade" written by Harold Arlen in 1905. He wrote many beautiful songs including Stormy Weather.

    "Be My Love" About 1948. I had the recording by Mario Lanza, one of my all time favorite singers.

    "Love Makes the World Go Round" written by Robert Merrill for the 1961 Broadway musical "Carnival".

    Hi GB

    Another good category. How 'bout "That's Amore"? Love Me Tender. Love Me With
    All Your Heart.

    Ich Liebe Dich (I Love You) by Beethoven. Schubert's Unfinished Symphony was
    modified into "Song of Love". Noel Coward wrote "If Love Were All".

    In "The Band Wagon" Fred Astaire sings "I Love Louisa".

    I used to have a record of the American soprano Anna Moffo singing some
    song with the lyrics, "Love is where you find it, don't be blind, it's all
    around you." Can't remember the name of the song though.

    I Love a Parade. April Love. Love is my Reason for Living. The last is from an English
    musical. I read the title was a quote from Shakespeare.

    Used to have lots of Mario Lanza records. Now I have a few of his CDs. Same music.

    Hope everydobby has a lovely day.

    Rock,I hadn't thought of some of these in years!

    Like 'I Love Louisa' That was a happy tune. :)

    I looked up the 'Love is Where You Find It' one and there is a video by Jane Powell. Another one from the '50s that was a great movie star songstress. Saw all of her movies.

    I just don't know how to post videos or I would have posted that one. It was a movie with Powell and I saw Robert Stack in the audience. Another good actor, but he didn't sing.

    I had several Lanza records. When I was a kid one of my neighbors cleaned out a garage and found some Enrico Caruso records, they were too scratched up to enjoy. Wish I had saved them though.

    Love, love me do. You know I love you,...

    And just thought of another one: When I fall in love, it will be forever, or I'll never fall in love.

    untill I saw You, I never felt this way, and nobody else before You, ever has heard me say: I have but one heart, that heart I bring You, I have but one life to share with You...

    Hi all --

    First song that came to mind:

    Love is a many splendored thing
    It's the April rose
    That only grows in the early spring
    Love is nature's way of giving
    A reason to be living
    The golden crown that makes a man a king......

    And next:

    SOMEWHERE MY LOVE, Ray Conniff Singers, 1966
    Somewhere, my love, there will be songs to sing
    Although the snow covers the hope of Spring
    Somewhere a hill blossoms in green and gold
    And there are dreams, all that your heart can hold......

    And one more:

    JUST AN OLD FASHIONED LOVE SONG, Three Dog Night, 1971

    (written by Paul Williams, remember him??)
    Just an old-fashioned love song
    Playin' on the radio
    And wrapped around the music
    Is the sound of someone promising they'll never go......

    I'm singing and tapping my feet, to the tunes on this great thread!

    Diane :p

    Hi Barry, GB, Soul, and all ---

    Here's a "bubblegum pop" song from the 1970's.

    I THINK I LOVE YOU, The Partridge Family, 1970
    I'm sleeping
    And right in the middle of a good dream
    like all at once I wake up
    From something that keeps knocking at my brain.......

    Another couple of favorites of mine:

    LOVE IS A ROSE, Linda Ronstadt, 1975
    Love is a rose
    but you better not pick it
    It only grows when it's on the vine......

    TO SIR WITH LOVE, Lulu, 1967
    Those school girl days of telling tales
    And biting nails are gone
    But in my mind I know
    They will still live on and on......

    Enjoy --- y'all remember any of my songs??

    I love this thread.

    Diane :cool:

    Diane, My kids used to watch The Partridge Family. Both daughters had a crush on the oldest boy, Greg, I think. Shirley Jones was a good singer and in a lot of movies in the 50's/60's. It was a cute t.v. show. I do remember that song. GB

    Diane - I really enjoy the videos you bring. Linda Ronsdadt - I faintly remember Love is a Rose, but remember every word to the one of hers you posted on the other game. I think it was 'A Different Drum'.

    I love hearing all these songs again - it gives me such a great feeling.

    Windblade, Diana Ross was a favorite of mine too. I loved all the songs of the Supremes. Didn't they sing "Cherish"? That was a pretty one. (I looked up Cherish and it was The Association, 1964.) ??

    Bye Bye Love is an oldie. Like me. :)

    I'm happy you enjoy the songs so much. They give me a great feeling too! GB

    Darrae, Those are good ones. I especially liked Elvis' version of Love Me Tender.

    How are you feeling? Good to see you here! GB

    Hi GB,

    Thank you for asking. Am some better. Not fantastic, but holding my own. I had some vacation time off and was amazed at how I was able to walk up the stairs here at home with a little more ease. Pain level is still not good. I'm planning on speaking to my G.P. about Medical Marijuana. I've been on the same meds for 18 years and am sure, by now, I've built up a resistance to the pain med, (Lodine). It's not working anymore.

    Of the 40 conditions it can be prescribed for, Fibro is one of them. There is a dispensary in Chicago, which would be quite a trek. But I'd find a way. I'm tired of the medications that are eroding the enamel off my teeth. Now I'm having major dental problems. In the last 4 months, 4 of my back teeth have broken off at the gum line. Three of which happened in the last 2 weeks!

    The minute I went back to work for one day last Friday, I was dragging myself up the stairs by the railing again. Oh well. I will never forget Love Me Tender. My sister was a huge Elvis fan and played that 45 over and over and over...etc.....LOL

    How bout these?

    Pat Boone....
    Love Letters In The Sand

    The Supremes....
    Stop In The Name Of Love

    Dr. Hook....
    When You're In Love With A Beautiful Woman (One of my Faves).

    I really enjoy this thread. Thanks all!
