The unhappiest people I know, romantically speaking, are the ones who like pop music the most; and I don't know whether pop music has caused this unhappiness, but I do know that they've been listening to the sad songs longer than they've been living the unhappy lives.

- Nick Hornby, High Fidelity

Carpenters有一首歌,叫"All You Get From Love Is A Love Song",有幾句歌詞,是這樣的:

Oh its a dirty old shame
When all you get from love is a love song
That's got you layin up nights
Just waitin for the music to start
Its such a dirty old shame
When you got to take the blame for a love song
Because the best love songs are written with a broken heart

最揪心的歌,是Bonnie Tyler 的"Total Eclipse of the Heart" 。還有Bryan Adams主唱、電影《天生愛情狂》(Don Juan DeMarco) 主題曲"Have You Ever Really Loved A Woman",看他近年演出,他老了。也許這令歌曲的滄桑味、浪子回頭金不換的感覺更突出。
