The AntiRomance Anthem:

Of course, Disco Sucks - but despite the genre, Gloria Gaynor sang the ultimate anthem for the romance-disillusioned:

First I was afraid
I was petrified
Kept thinking I could never live
without you by my side
But I spent so many nights
thinking how you did me wrong
I grew strong
I learned how to carry on
and so you're back
from outer space
I just walked in to find you here
with that sad look upon your face
I should have changed my stupid lock
I should have made you leave your key
If I had known for just one second
you'd be back to bother me

Go on now go walk out the door
just turn around now
'cause you're not welcome anymore
weren't you the one who tried to hurt me with goodbye
you think I'd crumble
you think I'd lay down and die
Oh no, not I
I will survive
as long as i know how to love
I know I will stay alive
I've got all my life to live
I've got all my love to give
and I'll survive
I will survive

It took all the strength I had
not to fall apart
kept trying hard to mend
the pieces of my broken heart
and I spent oh so many nights
just feeling sorry for myself
I used to cry
Now I hold my head up high
and you see me
somebody new
I'm not that chained up little person
still in love with you
and so you felt like dropping in
and just expect me to be free
now I'm saving all my loving
for someone who's loving me



726 days - we will survive....

    That is a cool song.

    Still, no one ever said that love isn't anything other than a roller coaster.

    Now how about a hug for Billy?

    Dolly Parton
    Love is like a butterfly
    As soft and gentle as a sigh
    The multicolored moods of love are like its satin wings
    Love makes your heart feel strange inside
    It flutters like soft wings in flight
    Love is like a butterfly, a rare and gentle thing
    ….
    I feel it when you're with me
    It happens when you kiss me
    That rare and gentle feeling that I feel inside
    Your touch is soft and gentle
    Your kiss is warm and tender
    Whenever I am with you I think of butterflies
    ….
    Love is like a butterfly
    The multicolored moods of love are like its satin wings
    Love makes your heart feel strange inside
    It flutters like soft wings in flight
    Love is like a butterfly, a rare and gentle thing
    ….
    Your laughter brings me sunshine
    Everyday is spring time
    And I am only happy when you are by my side
    How precious is this love we share
    How very precious, sweet and rare
    Together we belong like daffodils and butterflies
    ….
    Love is like a butterfly
    As soft and gentle as a sigh
    The multicolored moods of love are like its satin wings
    Love makes your heart feel strange inside
    It flutters like soft wings in flight
    Love is like a butterfly, a rare and gentle thing
    ….
    Love is like a butterfly, a rare and gentle thing

    I like a story with a happy ending…
    One boy meets girl and then….
    They never part again…

    Huh?… Elvis was cool, don’t you think?
