Music Monday: Your Favorite Love Song?

The things you discover on the sketchy corners of the internet. I heard the song below, for the first time, posted on a rather extensive message board thread (on a site that will paint me as a crazy person if I admit to visiting, so I'll refrain from mentioning it). The subject of the thread asked, "What is your favorite love song?"

After making my way through page upon page of not-so-great music, I read a post that mentioned "Stay With Me 'Till Dawn." I had never heard of the song nor the artist, Judie Tzuke. In a wave of Bette Midler and Savage Garden mentions, here was something worth playing. 

I have no idea how this song evaded me for 27 years but I finally stumbled upon its beauty. I can picture Victoria Legrand from Beach House listening to it for inspiration...

In case I'm not the only one who never heard of this artist or song, it was a hit in the UK in 1979.

If anyone is curious, of course I have many, many love songs that I consider favorites but one is definitely "All I Want Is You" (Live in Milan) by U2. I prefer the pace of the live version. I think it's very romantic and describes the type of love I hope finds me someday.

Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, United States
I'm living life in beautiful Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. I hold a journalism degree from West Virginia University. I have worked in television news, fashion marketing, PR, and cosmetic sales. My love for writing and sharing with the world my various passions is strong. One of my many ambitions is to be published and continue creating in the fields of digital and print media, literature and film. In my free time, I enjoy listening to music, going to concerts, reading, following Pittsburgh sports and traveling as often as possible. Some of my favorite things include beauty, style, architecture, books, tarot and astrology, thrifting and my shih-tzu, Ireland. I’m engaged to the love of my lifetimes and we look forward to starting our next chapter together. If you have any questions or comments, I would love to hear from you!
