Unrequited love
To me its nothing but a one man cult
And cyanide in my styrofoam cup
I could never make him love me
Never make him love me

FRANK OCEAN - BAD RELIGION LYRICS

I feel in love with this song the first time I heard it. It actually inspired one of my fan fics.
I was singing that all during work yesterday. Couldn't get it out of my head, and now it's back in my head, good times.

Shook Ones II by Mobb Deep and everything by CunningLynguists strike me like a firebrick when I listen to them. I have several favorite love songs- one of them being A Song for You by Leon Russell, another being Sea of Love by Phil Phillips and the Twilights. Both are fairly simple but strong. Two of my all time favorite songs are also love songs: Case of You by Joni Mitchell and Take it With Me by Tom Waits. The latter kills me when he sings, "all that you've loved is all you own."
Case of You is entirely brilliant:

Quote:
Just before our love got lost you said
"I am as constant as a northern star"
And I said "Constantly in the darkness
Where's that at?
If you want me I'll be in the bar"

On the back of a cartoon coaster
In the blue TV screen light
I drew a map of Canada
Oh Canada
With your face sketched on it twice
Oh you're in my blood like holy wine
You taste so bitter and so sweet

Oh I could drink a case of you darling
Still I'd be on my feet
oh I would still be on my feet

Oh I am a lonely painter
I live in a box of paints
I'm frightened by the devil
And I'm drawn to those ones that ain't afraid

I remember that time you told me you said
"Love is touching souls"
Surely you touched mine
'Cause part of you pours out of me
In these lines from time to time
Oh, you're in my blood like holy wine
You taste so bitter and so sweet

Oh I could drink a case of you darling
And I would still be on my feet
I would still be on my feet

I met a woman
She had a mouth like yours
She knew your life
She knew your devils and your deeds
And she said
"Go to him, stay with him if you can
But be prepared to bleed"

Oh but you are in my blood
You're my holy wine
You're so bitter, bitter and so sweet

Oh, I could drink a case of you darling
Still I'd be on my feet
I would still be on my feet
