It often embodies an idea of love that isn't realistic and is ultimately unhealthy; the perfect love that you see at the end of a shitty Hollywood film.

Which is itself an attempt to fuel consumerism and bad mental practice, with expensive gifts and a need for sinlessness and a lack of disagreement.

Basically my point is that its an issue much larger than the songs that turn the issue into easy to understand phrases.

I like this one. This one's my favorite. I like certain love songs too, but a family member was watching Britain's Got Talent when I wrote this which is why my initial question was a little jaded

I'm really attached to The Predatory Wasp of the Palisades Is Out to Get Us. It's a really calm, pure song about childhood love between two boys at summer camp, but it's bittersweet; they drift away as they get older and it becomes harder to express their feelings.

This it why i think "pss pss" by death grips it the perfect love song.

They are the reflection of capitalism society. Pretentious and petty. That's why I don't listen to lyrical music

Man, there are some great love songs out there.

An Eskimo showed me a movie he'd recently taken of you

The poor man could hardly stop shivering, his lips and his fingers were blue

I suppose that he froze when the wind tore off your clothes

And I guess he just never got warm, but you stand there so nice in your blizzard of ice

Oh please let me come into the storm

Not enough Leonard Cohen in the world. Also, Harvey Milk does a fantastic cover of it
