Songs about online dating
Something about Cocker’s raspy delivery allows him to speak for all the average guys out there. God Only Knows – The Beach Boys – The Beach Boys sing a soulful love song, though one that’s somewhat conditional.
“I may not always love you.” I guess they were being honest, at least.
I’ll try to restrain myself from having the Marvin Gaye section. Reunited – Peaches & Herb – The glory of reconciliation after a couple had a bad breakup. Better than the cover of this song by Beyonce and Luther Vandross. Baby Come To Me – Patti Austin & James Ingram – This is another song with a man taking charge of his situation, from back when they knew how to sing love duets.
I could have added several others duets of theirs, including “How Sweet It is”. All My Life – Linda Ronstadt & Aaron Neville – This duet won all kinds of awards the year it came out. Quincy Jones produced and Michael Mc Donald sang backup.
This list includes includes some of the bright lights and distant echos of the pop age female love song practitioners. Crazy – Patsy Kline – Written by Willie Nelson and sung by the immortal Patsy Kline. Crazy In Love – Beyonce – When I hear this song, I picture Beyonce dancing in that red dress. An in-your-face song about the kind of passion love can inspire. Dream a Little Dream – “Mama” Cass Elliot – Super song, showing up seemingly everywhere in many different covers over the years. “Dream a Little Dream” even featured big on one of my favorite anime shows, Cowboy Bebop. Love Takes Time – Mariah Carey – Once again, this is a song that gets in the mind of someone who has lost at love.
