Rock Revival's Top Ten Classic Rock Love Songs: Valentine's Day: Febuary 14


Given that men seem to predominate in rock women are a theme that will simply never go away: there’s Witchy Woman (The Eagles) Aeroplane Headed Woman (Pete Brown), Whiskey Headed Woman (Tommy Bolin), Money Lovin Woman (Albert King), Big Legged Woman (Freddie King), Black Magic Woman, Gold Dust Woman, Evil Woman, Honky Tonk Woman, Stoned Woman, LA Women, American Woman, Tarot Woman, Pretty Woman,
..................oh my God, the list is endless.

There are also songs about sex (Wild Cherry, Foghat, Dirty Love, Frank Zappa), about the loss of a woman (Cause We’ve Ended as Lovers, Eric Clapton), about troubles with women (Why Does Love Have to be so Bad, Derek and the Dominoes), older women (Maggie May, Rod Stewart), younger women (Good Morning Little School Girl), black women (Black Licourice, Grand Funk Railroad), Long Cool Women (..in a Black Dress, Creedence), Redneck Women (Gretchen Wilson)……….
OK I have to stop now…

None of these would seem to do for Valentines Day, this Thursday 14 Febuary.

Here’s Rock Revival’s Top Ten Classic Rock Love Songs, we need something softer, more romantic

1. In the Garden by Van Morrison (Van’s most beautiful song ?)
2. Feel Like Making Love Bad Company
3. Lady by Styx
4. Baby I love your way by Peter Frampton
5. I Believe in a Thing Called Love: The Darkness (check out the Lemar version)

7. Silly Love Songs by Wings (I’m with the 50% of the world who love Wings)
8. Love You Sunday Morning Scorpions
9 Got to Get You Into my Life The Beatles
10 Your Song by Elton John

Don’t forget about the 14th……………

I think "Song to the Siren" by Tim Buckley is a great love song even if the word Love is not mentioned. But still it is a very sensual song, a good eleventh for women who don't get tired to listen music. Maybe a little sad

greets from the other side of the world :))
