VA - Sweet, Sweet Love (A Butterboy Compilation) CD1+CD2+CD3


VA - Sweet, Sweet Love (A Butterboy Compilation) CD1+CD2+CD3

A Love Song is about love or expressing love for another person. It is usually a song about romantic love, falling in love, heartbreak after a breakup, and the feelings that these experiences bring. Sometimes it is used metaphorically and uses comparisons to convey the crazy feeling of sweet, sweet  love.  The love song is not a musical genre or musical style; it occurs in all styles. 

As long as there's been pop and rock music, there's been love songs. That simple message of romance and desire for a significant other that people around the world can relate to.  Some of the most romantic love songs in history have been written and performed by men. Women also write and sing love songs, often with similar themes but these seem to come from a different focus of love.

So, what is LOVE. The 75 songs in this compilation are Pop and Rock songs that express the feeling one has for the love they hold in their hearts for someone else. Expressed as their reason for loving someone. Enjoy!

  1. Thanks for this and so many other great posts, BB, and happy new year! It almost pains me to say that track 72 sounds more like the great Elmore James than it does The Chimes.

    1. Thanks, Ronzoni.

      Enjoy the love songs before Valentine's Day next month.
