L-O-V-E: What’s Chicken Got To Do With It?

For thousands of years people have written songs about l-o-v-e.

For thousands of years millions of people have sung ballads about l-o-v-e.

Which had me thinking …

How many songs actually have the word “l-o-v-e” in the title?

According to wiki there are only 32.

Here they are:

  1. A Groovy kind of love
  2. All I want to do is make love to you
  3. All you need is love
  4. As long as you love me
  5. All out of love
  6. An everlasting love
  7. And I love you so
  8. Burning love
  9. Can you feel the love tonight
  10. Can’t help falling in love
  11. Crazy little thing called love
  12. Crazy love
  13. Don’t you love me anymore
  14. Endless love
  15. Everlasting love
  16. Everything I love
  17. Feel like makin love
  18. Glory of love
  19. Greatest love of all
  20. How deep is your love
  21. I can love you like that
  22. I can’t believe you are in love with me
  23. I could fall in love
  24. I didn’t know I was looking for love
  25. I honestly love you
  26. I just called to say I love you
  27. I knew I loved you
  28. I love the way you love me
  29. I love you always forever
  30. I love you for sentimental reasons
  31. I wanna love you forever
  32. I want to know what love is

And then I thought what about the Beatles … they have at least 15  more songs with the word “love” in the title!

And I love her, Can’t buy me love, I’m in love, Love me do, etc.

The crazy thing is when you really sit down and think about it,  there are probably a thousand more songs with the word “l-o-v-e ” in the title.

And yet … with all this singing and writing about love we still have people fighting over who eats or doesn’t eat chicken at a fast food restaurant … that is simply amazing!

Maybe folks should stop singing about love and actually just start loving their neighbor as much as they love … their chicken.
