Brighter Than Sunshine by Aqualung (154) -When this song was first released it took me some time to appreciate it. In fact, I thought that it was insanely annoying because the guy singing it just seemed to be whining. Then I discovered that if you ignore his voice and focus on the words, it is a pretty damn good song. In fact, it is quite romantic and you know what a sucker I am for romantic songs. The simplicity of the lyrics is what makes it so romantic. When you are that blinded by passion you really could care less if it is raining as you wander the streets of an unfamiliar town because the excitement of the person you are with is greater than any kind of weather. That passion can compel you to reach over and touch that person no matter who is looking even it is on a busy street corner and this song seems to understand that desire. Even better, this song seems to capture the feeling of excitement that comes when all of this passion is discovered after the person has given up on the idea of romance and passion. How awesome is that? Best line: "I didn't have the strength to fight, suddenly you seemed so right, Me and you... what a feeling."
Say It Again by Marie Digby (51) - And here is yet another song introduced into my world courtesy of Smallville. It is another sweet song of love that it is catchy and easy to sing. In fact, it has recently become one of my favorite songs to sing as I am dancing around my kitchen while cooking dinner after a pleasant afternoon. Vocally it is average but the lyrics are simple and real which makes it an easy song to enjoy. Best line: "And never in my whole life have I heard words as beautiful as when you say my name."
