Pretty little love songs…

…can’t be wrong. There are an awful lot of love songs out there whose lyrics truly don’t take your heart and mind for a trip until the situation fits the mold of the songwriter’s empathy. I guess I should say un-love songs, those heartbreak and tearstain melodies that explain the situation that you are in perfectly, and of course have explained that same situation that perfectly for thousands upon thousands of other listeners over the songs’ existence. Whether it has been Wilco’s “A.M.” (which I had listened to many times before now without the emotional connection) or Led Zeppelin or whatever tune the radio serves up, there just seems to be an inordinate amount of coverage of downhill rolling, lost belonging. Or maybe I am just listening to what I want to hear.
