Fare you well, fare you well, I love you more than words can tell

[personal profile] spiralsheep had a great question:

Sing me a love song. Tell me your first reaction to the words "love song" or to a particular love song? Sing me a song about love songs. Tell me what you think a love song is? Are your favourite love songs: seduction songs, or romance songs, or celebrations of established love, or complaints about love, or songs about love lost? Tell me your favourite love songs.

My response:

Gosh, apparently album tracks from obscure-ish Scottish bands are hard to find on the Internet! Who knew?

We danced to this at our wedding, because we listened to the album a lot when we first started dating, it was fitting, and it was short: Del Amitri, "Through All that Nothing" (lyrics). Except my eyes aren't blue.

I find that my personal definition of "love song" is specifically about love or a relationship, and not sad or creepy. So, just off the top of my head:

What about you all?

(And why do I have no "music" icon?
