Independent Love Song - by Scarlet

Keeping with the current theme of love, this song was given to me over a decade ago by my first conscious love. And tonight for some strange reason it popped right into (or out of) my head again.

I still have it on tape (believe it or not) and after I got home, I listened to it once more (Yes I STILL have a tape player). And then afterwards, I found the original video for it, a hopelessly romantic one, you can bet your arse on that. God bless YouTube.

So this is for you blondie. You know who you are :-)

Dreaming Of A Special Kiss

On a rare gut instinct, I just looked up the word Love in Google. The first normal page that came up (after the "selling love" or matchmaking pages) was the definition of the word in Wikipedia:

"Love is any of a number of emotions and experiences related to a sense of strong affection.[1] The word love can refer to a variety of different feelings, states, and attitudes, ranging from generic pleasure ("I loved that meal") to intense interpersonal attraction ("I love my girlfriend"). This diversity of meanings, combined with the complexity of the feelings involved, makes love unusually difficult to consistently define, even compared to other emotional states.

Addressed as an abstract concept, love usually refers to a deep, ineffable feeling of tenderly caring for another person. Even this limited conception of love, however, encompasses a wealth of different feelings, from the passionate desire and intimacy of romantic love to the nonsexual emotional closeness of familial and Platonic love[2] to the profound oneness or devotion of religious love.[3] Love in its various forms acts as a major facilitator of interpersonal relationships and, owing to its central psychological importance, is one of the most common themes in the creative arts."

Somehow this is nice and well. But all it does is describe the word love.

Not Love.

I know, because I have had love in my life.

But I have yet to experience Love.

Beautiful Boyz - CocoRosie feat. Antony

CocoRosie featuring Antony Hegarty from Antony and the Johnsons.

It's what it would sound like, if Nina Simone & Bjork performed together.

Dreamy April Fool's

This was today on BBC.

And this is how they did it.

And now my heart is melting with pleasure :-)
