Writer's Block: Love stinks

Which song would you pick to describe your romantic life, and why?


I was going to play this for the laughs, and pick some silly song titles. Then one occurred to me that has both the humor value, and some meaning behind it: John Cage's 4'33".

That's 4 minutes, 33 seconds of silence. And the point of the piece is that there isn't truly silence, but the ambient noises of the audience and the surroundings. Every performance will be a little different. And it's all in what you make of it.

So I think that's a very fitting way to describe my romantic life: on the one hand, a whole lot of nothing to say. On the other hand, a greater awareness of little incidental moments, and whatever I choose to make of it.
