Top Gun: Maverick (dir. by Joseph Kosinski) 
From the moment it was announced, I had low expectations for Top Gun: Maverick. I figured it was just Tom Cruise milking his other franchise for what it's worth. I mean, I adore the Mission: Impossible movies, but was there ever really a need to...
Tears in Rain (by Vangelis)

What is Love? (by Haddaway) 

Welcome and Happy Valentine’s Day!! There are many different forms of love in the world, and in celebrating that, I’m showcasing some of the songs that come to mind when I think about the subject.

While it may not be the most romantic song on the planet, Haddaway poses a good question here. Just what is Love, anyway? Is it a hug when needed? A surprise Cookie with Milk when one is low? Is it looking out for one’s best interests, drawing a line and devoting some “me” time? Is it a deep passion that ignites and spurs others on?

I don’t know, but the song makes me me bob my head, and maybe that’s good enough. From 1993’s “The Album”, comes Haddaway’s “What is Love?”, made popular by Saturday Night Live.

Lyrics:

What is love?
Baby, don’t hurt me
Don’t hurt me no more

Baby, don’t hurt me
Don’t hurt me no more

What is love?

Yeah, yeah

(Ooh, ooh)

I don’t know why you’re not there
I give you my love, but you don’t care
So what is right?
And what is wrong?
Gimme a sign

What is love?
Baby, don’t hurt me
Don’t hurt me no more

What is love?
Baby, don’t hurt me
Don’t hurt me no more

(Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, oh-whoa, whoa, ohh, ooh)
(Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, oh-whoa, whoa, ohh, ooh)

Oh, I don’t know, what can I do?
What else can I say, it’s up to you
I know we’re one
Just me and you
I can’t go on

What is love?
Baby, don’t hurt me
Don’t hurt me no more

What is love?
Baby, don’t hurt me
Don’t hurt me no more

(Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, oh-whoa, whoa, ohh, ooh)
(Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, oh-whoa, whoa, ohh, ooh)

What is love?

(Ooh, ooh, ooh)

What is love?

(Ooh, ooh, ooh)

What is love?
Baby, don’t hurt me
Don’t hurt me no more

Don’t hurt me
Don’t hurt me

I want no other, no other lover
This is our life, our time
When we are together, I need you forever
Is it love?

What is love?
Baby, don’t hurt me
Don’t hurt me no more

What is love?
Baby, don’t hurt me
Don’t hurt me no more

Yeah

(Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, oh-whoa, whoa, ohh, ooh)
(Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, oh-whoa, whoa, ohh, ooh)

What is love?
Baby, don’t hurt me
Don’t hurt me no more

What is love?
Baby, don’t hurt me
Don’t hurt me no more

(Huh-huh, huh-huh)

Baby, don’t hurt me
Don’t hurt me no more

(Huh-huh, huh-huh)

Baby, don’t hurt me
Don’t hurt me no more
What is love?
