Men Write the Best Love Songs

Monday, November 9, 2009, 03:48 EDT Leave a comment Go to comments

It sounds sexist, but it’s true. Most of the greatest love songs of all time were written by men. Granted, what I consider the greatest may not be everyone else’s bag, and some of them are rather obscure. There are a many, though, that most of you would know.

Take this one, written by the wildly successful ’60s and ’70s pop songwriting duo of Burt Bacharach and Hal David. In my best Casey Kasem voice, I’d like to make this a long-distance dedication to LOML.

The moment I wake up
Before I put on my makeup
I say a little prayer for you
While combing my hair now
And wondering what dress to wear now
I say a little prayer for you

Forever, forever, you’ll stay in my heart
And I will love you
Forever and ever, we never will part
Oh, how I’ll love you
Together, together, that’s how it must be
To live without you
Would only mean heartbreak for me

I run for the bus, dear
While riding I think of us, dear
I say a little prayer for you
At work I just take time
And all through my coffee break time
I say a little prayer for you

Forever, forever, you’ll stay in my heart
And I will love you
Forever and ever, we never will part
Oh, how I’ll love you
Together, together, that’s how it must be
To live without you
Would only mean heartbreak for me

My darling, believe me
For me there is no one but you
Please love me too
I’m in love with you
Answer my prayer
Say you love me too . . .
