Bobby Gentry - I'll Never Fall In Love Again

Ah, the story of my life. But strangely I'm more likely to be singing I'll Never Fall In Love Again in the beginnings of a new romance, rather than after things have gone pear-shaped.

I think it's a mood thing. My mood and the music I'm listening to are tightly intertwined. What I want to listen to depends on my mood, and my mood will depend on what I'm listening to. Music can amplify and intensify how I'm feeling, or effect a complete change in my frame of mind.

When I'm smitten, warm, fluffy, easy-listening is the way to go, making this Burt Bacharach penned classic an obvious choice. Other likely candidates are The Carpenters, or Harry Connick Jr. or Can't Take My Eyes Off You by Andy Williams. It's unlikely that I'll be listening to I'll Never Fall In Love Again though. The song has become one of the few that I'll regularly sing myself when there isn't any other music around, but I think an accompanied Bobby Gentry does it much better...

I completely agree. You can sing yourself 'happy'.
I should know. Sad songs are only allowed when I feel happy enough to deal with them.
