What is a Love Light?

Turn On Your Love Light, Bobby Blue Bland. The great popularizer of the love light. This song has been covered by everyone from the Grateful Dead to the Blues Brothers.

 

Love Light, CNBLUE. A Korean pop boy-band. Can’t tell what they mean by love light, but it’s something smooth and creamy judging by their vocals.

 

Lovelight, Robbie Williams. Crazy video in which the heartthrob entertains a factory full of uniformed models, like a cross between Fritz Lang’s Metropolis and Robert Palmer’s “Addicted to Love” video. The song was composed and originally recorded by Lewis Taylor in 2003, three years before Williams got to it. The lyrics are a rarity among Love Light songs, in that they comment on such a light dimming:

I wanna know

Baby when you’re with me

Who do you think you’re foolin’?

Making me feel so sure

Turnin’ your lovelight down again.”

 

Lovelight, ABBA

This one begins with a complaint that a room’s too dark… until “you” arrive. So a love light is like a flashlight?

You must have a lovelight
Everything around you is lovelight
And I can feel your love everywhere
Maybe even when you’re not there
The lovelight
Everything around you is lovelight
You’re shining like a star in the night
I won’t let you out of my sight
I don’t want to lose you, I don’t want to lose your lovelight

 

Love Light in Flight, Stevie Wonder.

Love light in flight
Fuel injection passion

That’s the chorus. Really confuses the issue. Is love light similar to a lightwave or the speed of light now?

 

When the Lovelight Starts Shining Through His Eyes, The Supremes. The group’s first Top 40 hit, written and produced by the legendary Holland-Dozier-Holland triumvirate.

 

The Love Light, 1921 silent film drama starring Mary Pickford about a female lighthousekeeper in Italy who takes a shine to a sailor who is revealed to be a German spy.

 

Love Life, The Rutles. What’s an “F” or a “T” among friends? Comes closer to the meaning of “Love Light” than any of the above:

Love is the meaning of life

Life is the meaning of love

Love is the meaning of life

Life is the meaning of love

Love is the meaning of life

Life is the meaning of love

Love is the meaning of life

Life is the meaning of love…
