Love as an unending source of musical inspiration: from medieval courtly songs through Beethoven's Ich liebe dich to the Beatles song And I love her . Over the centuries, composers have been inspired and stimulated by the theme of love. Many couples now associate the memory of their first meeting or first kiss with a particular song, a musical spark which first lights the fire between two people, and continues to light up their love.
The more we immerse ourselves in the musical world of love songs, the broader the spectrum of human emotions becomes: songs which celebrate romantic love, secret love, longing from afar, jealousy, loss. Texts and melodies may have been adapted to fit with fashion over the centuries, but the feelings celebrated are so current that they continue to move us deeply today.
