- from the prologue to Lovesick
One of my fondest memories of the wonderful Dean Martin/Jerry Lewis partnership is them singing That’s Amore. When the world seems to shine like you’ve had too much wine…that’s amore. Amore is the Italian word for love, but what is love? Surely it is more than the feeling you have when the moon hits your eye like a big pizza pie. Love has been the subject of more songs, poems and stories than any other, and is impossible to define simply. There are different kinds of love, and they usually operate together to varying degrees; sometimes seemingly inextricable from one another. Love is powerful.
What Martin was singing about was the rush of warm fuzziness which characterises being in love. This intensely nice feeling overwhelms those who are in love, and colours their world in happy, hopeful shades. In Lovesick, Angus is afflicted with lovesickness, an obsession which drives him to extreme misbehaviour.
Have you ever been in love? What was the major symptom of your lovesickness?
Love makes the world go around. Can't exist without it.! But true heartache makes the chest ache (physically). I've felt it!ReplyDelete

Lovely post. Oh the troubles of lovesickness! ;)ReplyDelete
I can remember young love and being willing to overlook things that should not be overlooked because I was so smitten.ReplyDelete
I got a little bit smarter as I got older, but not much.
Funny how we only wise up by small increments. I'll be a work in progress until the day I die. Thanks for visiting Brett, and for taking the time to comment.Delete
