Re: The Guardian- 1000 songs everyone must hear- part one- Love

Looks like they viewed love in an expansive way..
Romantic, sexual, brotherly..

I know a good chunk of these tunes but there's several on here where I've never even HEARD of the bands.

Any Brits here that can tell me if these were well-known acts on your end of the "Big Pond"? Or are the Guardian crits just choosing obscurities for "cred" sake?:

Puppy Love Donny Osmond 1972

One listen is too many

Re: The Guardian- 1000 songs everyone must hear- part one- Love

Three points...

1. "Umbrella" by Rihanna? Good Lord...

2. Elton John only gets one song? And it's "Are You Ready for Love"? Seriously? What about "Your Song"? "Daniel"? "Sacrifice"?

3. Am I the only one who has never liked ABC, particularly "The Look of Love"?

Re: The Guardian- 1000 songs everyone must hear- part one- Love

Rihanna is a guilty pleasure of mine. i don't like or own any music like her but for some reason i really like her. don't tell anybody.

i want you- bob dylan should be in here.
