    Greatest Love songs by Rock bands

    No Ghey...but Ill start with 2 of many I like.

    Frank Sinatra called this one of the greatest love songs ever written.
    I posted a raw version as it was written by Harrison. Compare that to the studio version. At 1:55 is a bridge that was yanked out on final album.

    One of the great choruses. As always, Hensley's organ work is magnificent.

    As you look around you do you like what you see?
    Though it sometimes makes you lonely, do you like being free?
    And are you sure you'll be OK without my company?
    I just want you to be happy even if it's not with me.
    Sweet, sweet freedom, sweet, sweet, sweet.
    Will the line between all this and my love ever meet?
    Sweet, sweet freedom, sweet, sweet, sweet.
    What I'm really trying to say is that I will be around
    should you find that after all you can't get by with what you've found.

    Oh, it wasn't just my heart you took and tossed into the sea,
    though it's hard to find the words I need I guess it was me.
    Sweet, sweet freedom, sweet, sweet, sweet.
    Will the line between all this and my love ever meet?
    Sweet, sweet freedom, sweet, sweet, sweet.
    Will the line between all this and my love ever gonna meet?
    Sweet, sweet freedom, sweet, sweet, sweet.
    Sweet, sweet freedom, sweet, sweet, sweet.
    Sweet, sweet freedom, sweet, sweet, sweet. (fade out)

    I scream at you for sharing
    I curse you just for caring
    I hate the clothes you're wearing, they're so pretty
    I tell you not to see me
    I tell you not to feel me
    I make your life a drag, it's such a pity

    I watch your warm glow palin'
    I watch your sparkle fadin'
    As you realize you're failin' cos' you're so good
    Oh, I don't mean to upset you
    But there's so much crime to get through
    If I could make it easier then I would

    I wish I was your mother, I wish I'd been your father
    And then I would have seen you, would have been you as a child
    Played houses with your sisters and wrestled with all your brothers
    And then who knows, I might have felt a family for a while

    It's no use me pretending
    You give and I do the spending
    Is there a happy ending, I don't think so
    Cos' even if we make it
    I'll be too far out to take it
    You'll have to try and shake it from my head

    I wish I was your mother, I wish I'd been your father
    And then I would have seen you, would have been you as a child
    Played houses with your sisters and wrestled with all your brothers
    And then who knows, I might have felt a family for a while

    "I dont wanna miss a thing"??? Really Southpark?

    No offense, just personally one of Ruby's most hated songs of all time.

    Imagine being Mike Fisher after Ann Wilson wrote this one about him? Phenomenal tune.

    This guy never ceases to amaze me, no matter the era. What a brilliant, mother f**king musician/songwriter.

    Hello cowgirl in the sand
    Is this place
    at your command
    Can I stay here
    for a while
    Can I see your
    sweet sweet smile
    Old enough now
    to change your name
    When so many love you
    is it the same?
    It's the woman in you
    that makes you want
    to play this game.

    Hello ruby in the dust
    Has your band
    begun to rust
    After all
    the sin we've had
    I was hopin' that
    we'd turn bad
    Old enough now
    to change your name
    When so many love you
    is it the same
    It's the woman in you
    that makes you want
    to play this game.

    Hello woman of my dreams
    This is not
    the way it seems
    Purple words
    on a grey background
    To be a woman
    and to be turned down
    Old enough now
    to change your name
    When so many love you
    is it the same
    It's the woman in you
    that makes you want
    to play this game.





    EDIT: Had to add this gem.
