Need Songs about Burning for Love & Second Chances

Recommended Posts

The other night, I spent the night at my longtime ex-girlfriends house, now I'm coping with the usual second day sickness, grief as well as anticipation. I felt the original flame relight during the passionate night & now I need a few good songs that are about falling in love, burning up for someone, & wanting a second chance. Not so much the schmaltzy stuff like Kirk VanHouten ? ?Can I Borrow a Feeling.? Thanks for any input.

"Ain´t too proud to beg", Temptations. I prefer the Rolling Stones version. "We´ve got a groovy thing going, baby" Simon & Garfunkel.

"Let me try again" - Frank Sinatra

"Ain´t too proud to beg", Temptations. Better, Rolling Stones.

"We´ve got a groovy thing going, baby" Simon & Garfunkel.

"Let me try again" - Frank Sinatra

If it doesn´t work, "I will survive", Gloria Gaynor.

Oh, sorry, I couldn´t resist to make a bad joke... Hope things get the way you want. :thumbsup:

"Can I Borrow A Feeling".... :laughing: :laughing: :laughing:

Speaking of burning, here's a haunting song that I've always loved - "I Burn For You" by Sting. The original version can be found on the Brimstone and Treacle soundtrack.

There's also "Burn For You" by INXS.

A song about second chances that comes to mind is "A Murder of One" by Counting Crows.

"Still Loving You" by the Scorpions.

What a song...! It was one of my favourites until something very bad happened... now it reminds of that, I can´t listen to it (in fact, I don´t)

A lot of Chris Isaak songs :beatnik: Try: "Can't Do A Thing (To Stop Me)" and "Wicked Game" :elvis:

There's also an all-time favourite of mine:

"A Smile In The Crowd" by The Durutti Column :puppyeyes:

You turned me away

Away from your actions

Forced by the violence

That always surrounds you

I want your special smile

A smile in this crowd

I want your special smile

A smile in this crowd

You burnt yourself out

In that silence

I have to tell you

I ache for you still

The sound of my words

Is always so shocking

They get much louder

Each time I speak

I want your special smile

A smile in this crowd

I want your special smile

A smile in this crowd

Signals of progress

We're growing much older

I'm afraid that I'll leave

And my ache never goes

I want your special smile

A smile in this crowd

I want your special smile

A smile in this crowd

And, last, but not least, there's also Coldplay's "The Scientist" :headphones:

Off Topic (& I apologize) but what was the name of the hit he had in 1995, the video featured him on a beach & showed a glimpse of a very attractive woman, who's remained in my thoughts ever since. Ton of thanks, if you can help. :thumbsup:

edit:

Good luck, MC___ - hope it works out for you.

Thank you Elvish, and I strongly agree about "What It Takes" not only does it cover the topic pretty well, but the music sets the right mood of regret & hoping for things to go back to how they were.

Hurt So Bad.........Linda Rondstadt

I know you

Don't know what I'm goin' through

Standing here Looking at you

Well, let me tell you that it

Hurts so bad

It makes me feel so sad

It makes me hurt so bad

To see you again

Like needles and pins, people say

You've been making out okay

He's in love, don't stand in his way

Well, let me tell you that it

Hurts so bad

It makes me feel so sad

It's gonna hurt so bad

If you walk away

Why don't you stay and let me make it up to you

I'll do anything you want me to

You loved me before

Please love me again

I can't let you go back to her

Please don't go, please don't go

Ohhhh, hurts so bad

Come back, it hurts so bad

Don't make it hurt so bad

I'm beggin' you please

"Back For Good" by Take That (boy group o' da past ;) )

I guess now it's time for me to give up

I feel it's time

Got a picture of you beside me

Got your lipstick mark still on your coffee cup

Got a fist of pure emotion

Got a head of shattered dreams

Gotta leave it, gotta leave it all behind now

Whatever I said, whatever I did I didn't mean it

I just want you back for good

Whenever I'm wrong just tell me the song and I'll sing it

You'll be right and understood

Unaware but underlined I figured out this story

It wasn't good

But in the corner of my mind I celebrated glory

But that was not to be

In the twist of separation you excelled at being free

Can't you find a little room inside for me

Whatever I said, whatever I did I didn't mean it

I just want you back for good

Whenever I'm wrong just tell me the song and I'll sing it

You'll be right and understood

And we'll be together, this time is forever

We'll be fighting and forever we will be

So complete in our love

We will never be uncovered again

Whatever I said, whatever I did I didn't mean it

I just want you back for good

Whenever I'm wrong just tell me the song and I'll sing it

You'll be right and understood

I guess now it's time, that you came back for good

Ok Edna, I'll go check it out

And just what is wrong with Kirk Vanhouten? A man that managed a cracker factory can have deep rooted emotions you know.

I suggest Melissa Ethridge "Come to my Window" and Maroon 5 "She Will Be Loved"

Heh, he came off too strong on that episode, but winding up losing. IMO Funniest part is when his producer takes the cassette & his keys, says she's gonna change wigs & then drives off & runs over the tape.

I hear that Maroon5 song all the time, I've had it stuck in my head for some time now, not bad either.

As far as second-chance songs go, I'm a huge fan of John Mayer's "Back To You" (but then I'm a huge fan of pretty much all John Mayer's stuff... except his new album, I was disappointed... anyway, rambling, sorry)

For burning love I'm gonna have to go with "In Your Eyes" by Peter Gabriel. I love that song.

Um... my brain hurts, I can't think right now.
