    This is one that is familiar to many people when they hear it. When they see the band that sings it, the most common response is, “I didn’t know they sang that.”


    ‘I Love You’- The Climax Blues Band:

    https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=gvDwr9-MlfE


    When I was younger man I hadn't a care
    Foolin' around, hittin' the town, growing my hair
    You came along and stole my heart when you entered my life
    Ooh babe you got what it takes so I made you my wife

    Since then I never looked back
    It's almost like living a dream
    And ooh I love you

    You came along from far away and found me here
    I was playin' around, feeling down, hittin' the beer
    You picked me up from off the floor and gave me a smile
    You said you're much too young, your life ain't begun, let's walk for a while

    And as my head was spinnin' 'round
    I gazed into your eyes
    And thought ooh I want you

    Thank you babe for being a friend
    And shinin' your light in my life
    'cause ooh I need you

    (Instrumental)

    As my head was comin' round
    I gazed into your eyes
    And thought ooh I want you

    Thanks again for being my friend
    And straightenin' out my life
    'cause ooh I need you

    (Instrumental)

    Since then I never looked back
    It's almost like livin' a dream
    Ooh I got you

    If ever a man had it all
    It would have to be me
    And ooh I love you

    What makes a song “a ballad?”

    Best Answer: A ballad is a narrative (tells a story) poem or the music for such a poem. There are two types of ballads: folk ballads (dating from the 12th century) and literary ballads (18th century).

    "Ballad: a relatively short narrative poem, written to be sung, with a simple and dramatic action. The ballads tell of love, death, the supernatural, or a combination of these. Two characteristics of the ballad are incremental repetition and the ballad stanza. Incremental repetition repeats one or more lines with small but significant variations that advance the action. The ballad stanza is four lines; commonly, the first and third lines contain four feet or accents, the second and fourth lines contain three feet. Ballads often open abruptly, present brief descriptions, and use concise dialogue.

    The folk ballad is usually anonymous and the presentation impersonal. The literary ballad deliberately imitates the form and spirit of a folk ballad. The Romantic poets were attracted to this form, as Longfellow with "The Wreck of the Hesperus," Coleridge with the "Rime of the Ancient Mariner" (which is longer and more elaborate than the folk balad) and Keats with "La Belle Dame sans Merci" (which more closely resembles the folk ballad)."

    What a great thread, I now have no idea what my "favorite" is, I really do not have a "favorite". I am partial to Sinead O'Connor's, Nothing Compares to You. I have always loved (loved!), "Don't Cry for me Argentina". Strangely, "The Green Beret." is a favorite of mine from when I was in junior high. I love the videos posted, "Garden Party", have always loved that one. Neil Diamond, I love him in general! Guns and Roses, love them too. Thanks to all for sharing videos and videos with lyrics. Beautiful songs, some new ones I have never heard before, beautiful!!!! So many of these songs speak to my soul.

    Great choice. Have you heard the version done on Loreena McKennit's first or second album, where she sings back up to Cedric Smith? Sublime...

    Probably the saddest ballad I have heard. Liam Clancy if I recall rightly died last year. I think he was well - known among English-speaking people.

    The healthy human mind doesn't wake up in the morning thinking this is it's last day on Earth. But I think that's a luxury, not a curse. To know you're close to the end is a kind of freedom. Good time to take... inventory.
