10 The Smiths: There is a Light that Never Goes Out (1986)
A song about unrequited love (or rather, Morrissey’s customary inability to voice his desires), which reaches such unbearable extremes that he ends up fantasising about a possible double suicide: “And if a double decker bus, crashes into us/ To die by your side, is such a heavenly way to die.”
"The following list aims to set off on a romantic stroll away from the beaten track. It contains songs about love (both reciprocated and unrequited), and unbridled lust, and heartbreak, and adultery, and much more besides. There is nothing in it by such romantic titans as Céline Dion, Peter Andre, the Rolling Stones, Barry White, Rod Stewart or Coldplay — but I’m confident that most of its content could be used to advance the progress of most promising affairs."
The author makes some very interesting selections. Check it out:
