Greatest Rock Love Songs ever


Recommended Posts

I'll leave it to the late, great Lemmy to explore the darker side of love gone bad.  This band never disappointed.  

You don't know me baby but I know you so well,
Tried to make a fool of me, tried to ring my bell.
Sneaking round behind my back didn't make me cry,
But I'm gonna have my sweet revenge; pay back all your lies.

Gonna make a fool of you, watch out.
Make your life a misery; make you shut your mouth.
Gonna tell a tale on you, make your blue eyes cry,
And then you know we're truly through, bye bye bitch, bye bye.

You know all the reasons and I know all their names,
Trying to keep secrets babe ain't your strongest game.
Running round this city, running outta tales,
I'm gonna make you sorry honey, I'm gonna make you wail.

Gonna be a sad day for you soon.
Make your life a mockery, twist you out of tune.
Gonna do some work on you and only you know why,
And then it's time to say ‘so long', bye bye bitch, bye bye.

You don't know a goddamn thing about the real world,
Here's a short sharp lesson, and I mean every word.
You tell me that you love me but I'm just some other fool,
So bite the bullet, eat your words, I'll teach you the rules.

Gonna make a fool of you, watch out.
Make your life a misery; make you shut your mouth.
Gonna tell a tale on you, make your blue eyes cry,
Then you know it's adios, bye bye bitch, bye bye.

Had a girlfriend who loved that song. But if you listen to it, he basically gets sheetfaced and then expects her to put his blotto ass in bed. "Oh, you look wonderful, and I'm puking my guts up onto my shoes and cannot stay awake".

I’ve heard this is the number one wedding song in the last 20 years. He lives in Greenville SC and will play for 5 K now. He played a private show here at a buddy’s event. He literally drove up with his horn player and drummer in a Uhaul van.  They set themselves up and drove away with 5K cash. THAT was the deal. NO checks.  His integrity not in question. Simply can’t risk a check bouncing

How can't you love a love song with the lyric: "I want to f*ck you like an animal"?  lol  Phenomenal song.  I really respect Trent Reznor as a songwriter/composer.  Years ahead of his time.

It's All In The Game" by Tommy Edwards...

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tommy_Edwards

Edwards originally recorded and charted the song in 1951, but it only climbed to no. 18. The better-known 1958 version was on the same record label (MGM) and was backed by the same orchestra leader (Leroy Holmes), but with a different arrangement more suited to the rock and roll-influenced style of the time. As well as topping the U.S. Billboard Hot 100, the song also got to number one on the R&B chart and the UK Singles Chart.[4] The single sold over 3.5 million copies globally, earning gold disc status.[4] 

 

Here is Van The Man adapting it his own way...

When I saw your face
I became a prisoner of your eyes
And I would do just anything
To stay and be with you
You know there are times
When I let myself wonder
As I was going under
You pulled me back to earth
Don't you hear me crying?
Take me in your arms again
Tell me that you're trying
Or is our love a lie?
Love is blind
And love deceives you
You came along and captured me
Now I'm a prisoner of your eyes
Trapped in time
I cannot leave you
I'm just a prisoner of your eyes
As each day goes by
I've given up completely
I've locked myself inside your heart
And thrown away the key
Only time will tell
If I can live without you
Can you see into the future?
Will you ever set me free?
Don't you hear me crying?
Take me in your arms again
Tell me that you're trying
Or is our love a lie?
Love is blind
And love deceives you
You came along and captured me
Now I'm a prisoner of your eyes
Trapped in time
I cannot leave you
I'm just a prisoner of your eyes
In this heartache
We can try and start again
Stop the heartbreak
A little time will help to kill the pain
Don't you hear me crying?
Take me in your arms again
Tell me that you're trying
Or is our love a lie?
Love is blind
And love deceives you
You came along and captured me
Now I'm a prisoner of your eyes
Trapped in time
I cannot leave you
I'm just a prisoner of your eyes
Love is blind
And love deceives you
You came along and captured me
Now I'm a prisoner of your eyes
Trapped in time
I cannot leave you
I'm just a prisoner of your eyes
Love is blind
And love deceives you
You came along and captured me
Now I'm a prisoner of your eyes
Trapped in time
I cannot leave you
I'm just a prisoner of your eyes

Her face is ethereal. The eyes, mouth, smile.... And her skin tone makes me insane. It's like the gods crafted Hoffs out of gold and amber. Still looks and sounds pretty amazing today. This is from a few days ago.

 

The last time i went to America was to see the Bangles live at the Boulton Center in Bay Shore.

I also saw Billy Joel at the MSG and the Jets against the Lions, but the main reason was to see Susanna live.

I'm not huge fan of U2.  Few songs I love most I hate, but they did have some killer love ballads.  I'm shocked I forgot this one, this was my go to make out song in the back seat in High School.  lol  How can you not love this song?

Ed Galgliardi, RIP, lived next to my best friend. Brentwood NY.  We graduated I think 7 years before us.  It was so Kool to be in HS and know that a rock star, per se, could be one of us.  They fired him after second album I believe.   Blue morning Blue day, might be my favorite.
