Blue Rose

Lesser Revelations

I realized something the other day, in my near-infinite wisdom.  I realized that bands write love songs.  But not every kind of love songs.  There are the bitterness and breakup love songs; there are the lovelorn laments; there are the awed amazement, Why Did You Pick Me?s; there are the screaming, blaming, anger-ridden ones; and there are, if you listen to rap, the Heyyyy, You're Hot, How Do I Get into Your Pants? love songs.

But they don't write songs for people who have never had anyone.

...Do they, Gandalf?
