Why should I fall in love
Turn my world upside down
One broken heart is quite enough
Why should I fall in love

Why should I hold your hand
Feel my hopes start to rise
It's a long way down and I can't fly
Why should I fall in love

Why should I hold you
Why should I dream
I know myself,
I'll just take it to extremes

I want to keep you my whole life through
If you've got no one,
Least you've got no one to lose

Why should I fall in love
Wake up tomorrow with a smile
I want the kind that lasts awhile
Why should I fall in love
Tell me baby

Why should I hold you
Why should I dream
I know myself,
I'll just take it to extremes
I want to keep you my whole life through
But if you've got no one,
Least you've got no one to lose

Why should I fall in love
Turn my life inside out
One broken heart is quite enough
Why should I fall in love

This old heart has had it rough
Why should I fall in love

Gentle Hour
Yo La Tengo
This song was originally written by a guy called Peter Gutteridge. He was one of the founders of the "Dunedin Sound" a musical scene in the south of New Zealand in the early 80s. From there it was covered by "The Clean" one of the early bands of that scene (he had originally been a member of in it's early days, writing a couple of their best early songs). The Dunedin sound, and the Clean became popular on american college radio in the mid to late 80s. I guess Yo La Tengo heard that version. Great version of a great song,

Just A Little Lovin'
Dusty Springfield
I don't think it's necessarily about sex. It's about wanting to start the day with some love and affection. Maybe a warm cuddle. I'm not alone in interpreting it that way! For example: "'Just a Little Lovin’ is a timeless country song originally recorded by Eddy Arnold in 1954. The song, written by Eddie Miller and Jimmy Campbell, explores the delicate nuances of love and showcases Arnold’s emotive vocals. It delves into the universal theme of love and how even the smallest gesture of affection can have a profound impact on our lives." https://oldtimemusic.com/the-meaning-behind-the-song-just-a-little-lovin-by-eddy-arnold/

Page
Ed Sheeran
There aren’t many things that’ll hurt more than giving love a chance against your better judgement only to have your heart crushed yet again. Ed Sheeran tells such a story on “Page.” On this track, he is devastated to have lost his lover and even more saddened by the feeling that he may never move on from this.
