Love Songs: Love Is All Around

Today's love song is attributed to another love I had. But it's a story I'm not ready to tell. Suffice it to say that I am grateful for friends and co-workers who were quick thinking and got me out of a bad situation quickly.
Love Songs: Love Is All Around http://www.jinglejanglejungle.net/2015/02/love3.html #WetWetWet #ValentinesDay



I feel it in my fingers, I feel it in my toes
Love is all around me and so the feeling grows
It is written on the wind, it's everywhere I go
So if you really love me, come on and let it show

You know I love you, I always will
My mind's made up by the way that I feel
There's no beginning, there be no end
'Cause on my love, you can depend

I see your face before me as I lay on my bed
I kind a get to thinkin' of all the things you said
You gave your promise to me and I gave mine to you
I need someone beside me in everything I do

You know I love you, I always will
My mind's made up by the way that I feel
There's no beginning, there be no end
'Cause on my love, you can depend

It is written on the wind, it's everywhere I go
So if you really love me, come on and let it show
Come on and let it show, come on and let it show
Come on and let it show, come on and let it show
Come on and let it show


"Love Is All Around" is a song written by Reg Presley and originally performed by his band, The Troggs. http://youtu.be/Ut5uC91FcbI

It has been covered by several artists, including Wet Wet Wet, REM, and The Guess Who.

And to show that love truly is an international feeling, this has been translated and covered in the Swedish and Slovenian languages.

Swedish "Du ger mig av din kärlek" by Lotta Engbergs orkester http://youtu.be/kI2G1dgBIVU
Slovenian "Vsepovsod ljubezen" (literally translates to Love Everywhere) by CUKI http://youtu.be/uQcdGslF82M

The song has been used in the screen play "Get Real 1998" and the film "Four Weddings and a Funeral", as well as a parody version appearing in the film "Love Actually"

My personal preference is the Wet Wet Wet version.
