Not-so-Silly Love Songs

You’d think that people would have had enough of silly love songs
I look around me and I see it isn’t so
Some people want to fill the world with silly love songs
And what’s wrong with that
I’d like to know

Paul McCartney, in “Silly Love Song,” didn’t mind waxing poetic about love. Let’s be honest: All you need is love. (Yes, that’s another blatant Beatles reference). Love, love, love…we can’t seem to get enough of it.

What songwriters penned as lyrics, God wrote to us in his word: For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life (John 3:16).

We hear it time and time again, in both secular and sacred music: love never fails.

Now that is a song worth singing.
