What it is about, this love thing...

A Talk With God (Who Loves You?) The Addiction Club

There is a ton of peacefulness afoot here. All levels- the pretty acoustic guitar, the strings, the violin, the lack of drums, the gentle harmony vocals, the melody, the arrangement, the meaning of the words.

As a love song it excels in simplicity and faith in the existence of love despite obstacles, and delivered with sincerity I am prone to accept on face value.

It feels like the Doobie Brothers got real sentimental and offered this up unplugged, which means to me it is credible even if a bit mushy. Thankfully the road to love described is not perfectly straight and pothole free, no, one must keep the eyes on the road ahead all the time, never forgetting, always focusing on "who loves you".

I'm not enamored with the melody itself, I don't think I could be killed even softly by this song. Nonetheless, it could slip in a mix and hit a person feeling especially emotionally vulnerable pretty hard, perhaps even a tainted romantic such as myself on some days.
