In thinking about songs for the best love song thread, I am reminded of several songs of lost love (many of which were mentioned in the that thread). My favourite of these is "Boots of Spanish Leather" by Bob Dylan.

How about it 'catters, what's your favourite song of a love lost?

Dear Companion Every Night When the Sun Goes In If He's Gone, Let Him Go Come All You Fair and Tender Ladies and a zillion others.

This is probably the most widely used theme in traditional lyric songs. Pete Seeger once observed that there were so many songs of "unrequited love" because when love was requited folks were too darned busy to make up songs.

Subject: Lyr Add: In Dreams^^
From: LEJ
Date: 17 Apr 99 - 01:29 AM

"I close my eyes, and drift away

into the magic night- I softly say

a silent prayer, as dreamers do

I close my eyes and dream my dream of you.

In dreams I walk with you- in dreams I talk with you

In dreams you're mine all of the time

We're together in dreams-

But just before the dawn, I awake and find you gone

I can't help it- I can't help it if I cry

I remember when you said Goodbye

It's too bad that all these things

Can only happen in my dreams

Only in dreams- in beautiful dreams."

Roy Orbison wrote that for his wife after she died in a tragic accident in the early 1960s. I can't say whether it is the song or the ache in Roy's voice when he sings it, but I think it's my favorite song of lost love.

"Fire and Rain" is a song of a lost friendship, I believe.

"Ruby" is about the best anti-war song in history, intended or not.

Mary O'Hara wrote in her autobiography that The Quiet Land of Erin became somewhat her themesong before she went into the convent. Her husband, Richard Selig, died at age 27, only 15 months after their wedding.

Barry, gawd love Belle Starr, but I think it was Byron, wasn't it? Can't remember!

If anyone is interestd, we do have the sheet music available for the songs of my brother's I listed above, sose ya' can hear the very beautiful tunes these words were written for. They've never been done in a folk style, but having sung them in concert, I can tell you I think they would lend themselves well to folk and they have always been well-received. There, blatant plug and nepotism to boot! Here are the lyrics.

EVENINGS IN CRYSTAL

1)
Evenings in crystal, Sparkling in the candlelight's glow
Evenings in crystal and love, Lost in the stream of time's flow
Now it is so long ago, that you were my love

2)
Evenings in crystal, bright as the love in your eyes
Evenings in crystal and love, something inside me still cries
Something inside me tries to bring back your love.

Refrain

Evenings of radiance, bright in the flame
Of love and romance, your power to entrance
I remember the love lines you read to me
Your voice I still hear, you somehow seem near
And I long to repeat, those hours so sweet we shared
And, I'll dream of you, yet, I can never forget our love.

Repeat Verse 1
copyright Delton L. Hudson all rights reserved

KARMIC LOVER:

1)

Karmic Lover, your path crosses mine,
Karmic Lover, the stars have set the time,
Karmic Lover, you are my destiny, you were meant for me
And my love for you is the fate I bear
Karmic Lover, why don't you care?
Karmic Lover, why don't you care?
Why don't you care, Karmic Lover?

Repeat

The wheels of time go round and round
You were lost to me, but now you're found
The heavens above have blessed our love
The planets in their trine have marked the sign
Now our lives must intertwine
How can you be so cold, when our love has been foretold?
How can you be so cold, when our love has been foretold?

Repeat 1

copyright Delton L. Hudson ARR

THE FLOWERS OF SUMMER

1)

The flowers of summer are bloomin' in my mind
Our love when young then and time was kind
Those days I cherish, they'll never perish
The flowers of summer are bloomin' in my mind.

2)

No thought of parting then chilled my mind
No winds of autumn left summer behind
The days were warm then and love's reborn when
The flowers of summer are bloomin' in my mind.

Refrain

Golden sun of summer, return now and shine your rays
On my heart, warm my life and let my love return,
And in my hours of remembrance the flame of my love shall burn
And though the roses of June are gone
The Dream of Summer and Love lives on

Repeat Verse 1

Kris Kristopherson has several good ones: My favorites are "When I Loved Her," "Jodie and the Kid," and, of course "Me and Bobby McGee." Others are "Help Me Make It through the Night" and "Loving Her Was Easier." All of these were on his first two albums. Reba McEntire's "What Am I Gonna Do about You?" is another one (one of the better committee products you'll see--written by Doug Gilmore, Bob Simon, and Jim Allison--of course, it may just be Reba's interpretation that makes it seem so good.) I wonder--am I the Mudcat's only Reba McEntire fan? Another of her songs (by Harlan Howard and Chick Rains) is about a different kind of lost love: "Somebody Should Leave" is about a couple who stay together despite their love being painfully over because "You need the kids, and they need me." --seed

"The Wagoneer's Lad"

Also, "Vasija de Barro" -- at least the story has it that it's a song from a Catholic priest in Peru, who was a accused of having an affair with his young Indian housekeeper, so he moved to another village to avoid the scandal; and returning some years later, learned that the girl had killed herself out of sadness; so he dug up her remains and made a quena out of her shin bone, and spent the rest of his life softly playing sad melodies into an earthen jar ("Vasija de Barro").

I don't think that he wrote it, but Willie Nelson and Ray Charles recorded "Seven Spanish Angels"

Seven Spanish Angels

He looked down into the brown eyes
And said "Say a prayer for me"
And she threw her arms around him
Whispered "God will keep us free"
They could hear the riders coming
He said "This is my last fight,
"If they take me back to Texas,
"They won't take me back alive"

(Chorus)
There were seven Spanish angels
At the altar of the Sun
They were praying for the lovers
In the Valley of the Gun
When the battle stopped and the smoke cleared
There was thunder from the throne
And seven Spanish angels
Took another angel home

She reached down and picked the gun up
That lay smoking in his hand
She said "Father please forgive me,
"I can't make it without my man"
And she knew the gun was empty
And she knew she couldn't win
But her final prayer was answered
When the rifles fired again

Chorus

Here are some pop songs you might consider. I don't know who wrote them, but Frank Sinatra sang "One More for the Road"--"We're drinking, my friend, to the end of a brief episode, so give me one for my baby, and one more for the road."

Nat King Cole had some good ones: "Blue Gardenia," "Dance, Ballerina, Dance."

Great songs mentioned! With some songs, like "Ruby", you get lost love and a message, like the anti-war one: it wasn't me that started that old crazy asian war.

(Two other favorite anti-war songs, both from CCR: Fortunate Son, Wrote a Song for Everyone. But that's another thread.)
