End of a Love Affair
End of a Love Affair - in Song Titles
Stories about love and love affairs usually fascinate me. Second to Lee Child mysteries, that is. Quotes about love are among my favorites. Like this quote from Rita Rudner: "Before I met my husband, I'd never fallen in love. I'd stepped in it a few times."
So I got to thinking about how many songs have been written about being in love. and how many have been written about breaking up - the end of a love affair. Literally hundreds.
So I said to myself, "Self, I bet you could write a story using only song titles." Of course, I took the challenge. Here is my story about the end of a love affair written by using only published song titles. There are only two characters in this story: the BOY and the GIRL.
BOY: Be my love!
GIRL: Let me go, lover!
BOY: I just called to say I love you.
GIRL: What's love got to do with it?
BOY: I can't stop loving you.
GIRL: Will you still love me tomorrow?
BOY: Make love to me.
GIRL: Stop in the name of love.
BOY: Love will keep us together.
GIRL: (You are a) Part time lover.
BOY: Baby, I need your loving.
GIRL: You've lost that loving feeling.
BOY: This guy's in love with you.
GIRL: You give love a bad name.
BOY: All you need is love.
GIRL: (You know) 50 ways to leave your lover.
BOY: How am I supposed to live without you?
GIRL: I'll never fall in love again.
BOY: Breakin' up is hard to do.
GIRL: Why don't you do right?
BOY: Love and marriage?
GIRL: I would do anything for love, but I won't do that!
