OK, so my favourite love song – in fact, probably my favourite song, full stop, ever – is 'A Case of You' by Joni Mitchell. It is, it is so beautiful. It's really sad, as well, because it's about the end of love, erm, and she compares her love, or the person she loves, to wine, so wine that she can't stop drinking, that has a really powerful effect on her. But at the same time, she's saying 'I can survive this', because she says 'I could drink a case of you and I would still be on my feet'. So, I love that contrast between the feeling that she can't stop but also saying 'you're not too much for me', 'you're not too strong for me', 'I can take it'. So, for me, it's the most beautiful song. The music is beautiful, the lyrics are as well; they're like poetry. So, if you don't know it, go and listen to it and tell us what you think in the comments. And we're really looking forward to hearing about your favourite love song. So it can be a happy song or a sad song, like the one I chose, but tell us all about it in the comments.
