The Hardest Question Ever?

Hey everyone. Voting continues at the Nigerian  blog Awards. Please show some love to us and all your other favorite blogs by voting here. That’s that. Now, it’s going to be a short one today. Why? Well, cause I’ve only come here to ask a question. Initially, I wanted to structure this as another exam but the question is kind of cheap and also,  I think it will be absolutely impossible to come up with a marking script for your answers so I changed my mind.

I bet now you’re really curious. So, I got into an argument, well, more like a conversation a few weeks back (typical me) about what could possibly be ‘the hardest question ever‘, well, sort of. After an hour of back and forth, we came up with a question, which, well, I’m not exactly sure is the hardest question ever but being the music lover that I am, I took instant interest in it and decided to share with you guys.

Now, here’s the original question: What is the greatest love song ever done? (pauses for effect). Yeah. I thought as much. Let’s not even get into all the reasons why it’s almost impossible to find an answer to that question. And the term ‘Love Song’…sheesh.. just sounds so cheesy. Anyway, for a second there, I’m sure you mentally ran through God knows how many songs. So you see why developing a marking script would have been totally impossible? So, what I’ve decided to do is narrow things down and see if it’ll help. So here’s my question. “If you could choose one ‘love song’ done between 1990 and today, which in your opinion ‘perfectly’ captures the term ‘love song’, which would it be?”

Long right? What I’ve tried to do is narrow this down ‘our generation’. Now, to properly answer this, you’ll probably need a few minutes to think up your answer. Also, I know a lot of the guys are about to switch off to the background and just read up other peoples comments but I’ll ask you this. Have you ever listened to Elton John sing ‘Your Song’… The Beatles – Something, Stevie Wonder – As, Whitney Houston – I’ll always love you, Percy Sledge – When a man loves a woman.. Ok ok.. Let me come back to our focus years. Michael Buble – Everything, Jason Mraz – You and I both or perhaps tunes from the more common artistes, R.kelly, Usher, Jagged Edge, Sade, Beyonce e.t.c.

Have you heard some of these guys profess love on a tune and deep within you, gangster dude, barbie chic or whatever your personality, you just imagine having that one special person you could say those words to? I know a lot of factors go into this, from personality to musical preference yada yada.. All I’m trying to see is if we have a couple of titles mentioned way more than others in the comment thread.

So there you have it. It’s all about music, love and the cheese today. Use the comment box and speak your mind. Cheers.

  24. ofcourse it’s Daniel Bedingfield’s “If u’re not the one”… Immediately I saw the question, I didnt have to think too far at all…maybe becos it’s like a ‘past question’ I’ve seen before (I have asked myself the hardest question ever before *smug look*)…

    Posted by Radeyo | June 29, 2011, 9:35 am
  25. I’ll have to go with what highlandblue says but also backstreet boys song ‘ I will’ (the way u make me feel inside, you complete me girl that’s why”. Really you shld have asked for the top five because its really one of the hardest questions ever IMO.

    “Forever can never be long enough for me to feel like I’ve had long enough with you” –

    This is the best opening line for a love song ever.

    Posted by zoey | June 29, 2011, 9:49 am
  36. *sigh. How could I forget Daniel Bedingfield’s If You Are Not The One?

    Posted by UrNextDoorNeighbour | June 29, 2011, 9:50 am
  37. Hello – Beyonce.

    The lyrics got me, I think this is probably her best work.

    (I’ll stop when I’ve done ten songs)

    Guardian angel – jumpsuit apparatus

    Posted by Sandie Pandie | June 29, 2011, 10:01 am
  47. Nearly cried when I heard this song the first time…..but it feels more like an unrequited love song to me……nice choice though.

    Posted by jAyajade | June 29, 2011, 10:10 am
  48. I absolutely love this song

    Posted by twittinigerian | June 29, 2011, 10:10 am

    Hoobastank- the reason
    Switchfoot – on fire

    I can’t choose but if I have to its gonna be “CREED’s ONE LAST BREATH”

    Posted by ibetapassmynebo | June 29, 2011, 10:17 am
  52. Oh yeah, Dangerously in love (by Beyonce) was a serious contender, those lyrics are really deep mehn… but then I had to re-classify; if I were to choose the best love song from a guy to a girl, it’d have to be Daniel’s, and from a girl to a guy (to me in particular sef), definitely Beyonce’s…

    Posted by Radeyo | June 29, 2011, 10:18 am
  53. The Man That Can’t be Moved – The Script
    is one of my favourites!

    Posted by Radeyo | June 29, 2011, 10:24 am
  57. Daniel bedingfield- if u not the one
    Savage garden- I knew I loved you
    Dare- no stars

    These 3 popped to my mind….I’m sure if I go thru my playlists I’ll find soo many. The list is endless, can’t choose.

    Posted by thetoolsman | June 29, 2011, 10:29 am

    Love like winter- afi
    Strawberry swing, violet hill and yellow by coldplay!!

    Posted by zoey | June 29, 2011, 10:33 am
  66. “Said I loved you but I lied” – That’s a contradicting title for a really great love song mehn… U just have to listen to the next line to understand the paradox; “cos this is more than love I feel inside”…. *sigh* Michael Bolton, tooooo gbaski

    Posted by Radeyo | June 29, 2011, 10:33 am
  67. I agree with @Lagoshunters Choice. Daft Punks ‘something about us’ is just sublime

    More recently, Train’s ‘Parachute’ has been getting me lately. Its just full of subtext. Indirect and beautiful

    “I’ll open up and be your parachute
    and I’ll never let you down
    so open up and be my human angel…”

    This just speak to me.

    Posted by ThinkTank! | June 29, 2011, 10:33 am
  68. Purify Me – India Arie. Sooooo much soul in that song. ‘Sigh’

  90. Personally, I would pick either Everything (Micheal Buble) or Just the Way you Are (Bruno Mars). Now I’ll read other people’s comments and see if I change my mind. 🙂

    Posted by All Heart | June 29, 2011, 11:18 am
  91. Impossible question to answer, cos after you write one down, u remember anoda.

    Norah Jones – what am I to You
    “To me you are the sea, fast you can be, deepest shade of blue.”

    Tracy Chapman -The Promise
    “If you miss me once, I’ll return to fill that space in ur heart”.

    Halo – Beyonce

    I don’t think there’s such a thing, sir.

    Posted by ijeoma | June 29, 2011, 11:18 am
  92. I absolutely love Naked, Things I’ll never say, I will be… I’m just an Avril fan.

    Posted by Glory | June 29, 2011, 11:19 am
  93. I agree wt Zoey’s blink 182’s I miss you…’Don’t waste ur time on me,you r already the voice inside my head’….nt my best love song though….. Coldplays- the scientist and the man who cannot be moved – the script get to me all the time.

    Posted by deevarh | June 29, 2011, 11:22 am
  94. Love , Love, Love that song. *off to download*

  95. Looovvee this song..infact brian mcknight is just wonderrful:)

    Posted by kechilauren | June 29, 2011, 11:26 am
  96. Aerosmith – I don’t wanna miss a thing
    Pet shp boys – always on my mind and Go west I lavv

    In my opinion there is no ‘greatest’ love song jor…..but love songs of the 90’s def beat the ones in our generation.

    Posted by deevarh | June 29, 2011, 11:27 am
  97. Ok, I’ve read the comments and come up with my top 5.
    I keep the 2 above and add these 3 below:

    If You’re not the One (Daniel Bedingfield)
    I knew I loved you (Savage Garden)
    When You Say Nothing At All (Ronan Keating)

    Ok, I’m done. A playlist would be greatly appreciated.

    There is no answer.

    We are individuals. Very different.

    And mine is : Love don’t stop by Craig David.

    Or Lucky by Jason Mraz & Colbie Calliat

    Or Beyonce – Roc

    Or some Saheed Osupa Saridon P!!!!

  127. first off the hardest question still is “what do women want”……

    as for the greatest love song, too relative, I’m not into blues but I would rather go with that sensual song composed by a lover & sang on an anniversary or som’n like that.

    has anyone mentioned African queen? #justasking

    Posted by Luciano | June 29, 2011, 3:11 pm
