December 19, 2010 Leave a comment

Ever hear a song that just perfectly describes a love you once had as though it  was written just for you? Or maybe a song that reminds you of a lost love or one you are trying to find again? Over and over again erykah badu amazes me with her ability to write such beautiful songs that touch your soul.  I don’t think there is one person in this world who cannot relate to at least one of these songs.  If you have any other love songs you would like to share please feel free to comment below.

1. In Love With You (ft. Stephen Marley) [lyrics] [album]

Hands down one of the best love songs ever written and recorded. To me it’s a song of shy yet undeniable love, from the soothing guitar to the simple yet beautiful lyrics, this song remains one that will forever touch my heart.

2. Certainly [lyrics] [album]

Certainly was not looking for a love affair until i stumbled upon this song. An ode to unannounced love, this song rings true. Ever vow to never fall in love again after having your heartbroken? I certainly have and in that moment of despair someone seems to walk in and change your heart completely. From listening to his song, i can tell Erykah has been through it at least once or twice. The way she tells it is the way it is.

3. Fall In Love (Your Funeral) [lyrics][album]

Some may argue if this is truly a love song and everyone is entitled to their opinion but to me this song is about two of the basic human emotions…fear and love. “You don’t want to fall in love with me”  The repeated chorus tells of someone not wanting to be the object of someone elses desire because they feel they aren’t good enough.  Again, amazing vocals with an amazing message combines to make this a great love song.

4. Out of My Mind, Just In Time [lyrics][album]

Are you a recovering undercover over-lover? Then this song is for you. Basically a story of trying to get over someone while another one wants you at the same time…and succeeding. Just in time.

5. Gone Baby, Don’t Be Long [lyrics][album]

A song of missing the one you love and doing anything to have them by your side at this moment even though you know there is nothing you can do but be patient. To me that’s the hardest type of patience you can have. A lesson i’m still learning.
