Prog isn't about love, soul is. Marvin gaye, The classics IV, Stevie Wonder and the other brothas. No, I'm just kidding, there are fine love ballads by prog bands but if your purpose is to play them for your sweetheart I don't think it makes sense. Play Marvin Gaye instead, let's get it on!

Some Prog is about Love.

Twelfth Night's "Love Song", as a single example.

But if you're not going to talk about Prog, how about discussing this topic in the "Non-Prog" lounge, eh?

The important thing is not to stop questioning.

Alright, for the prog purists I'll mention some prog love songs I remember:
 
Wondering aloud - Jethro Tull
VDGG - Lost
Yes - Sweetness
Requiem - Jethro Tull
 
There are a lot more corny songs but I don't remember well. But again, I got the feeling that prog is too cold to talk about love the way other genres do, and this is IMHO.

The greatest prog love song (besides Script by Marillion or a good portion or MC by Marillion) is Turn of the Century by Yes. Well not the greatest or the best, but it is beautiful. The best is Lady Fantasy by Camel.

Non-prog:
Well, the entire Layla and Other Assorted Love Songs as a whole works...

Script... a love song? It's one of the most depressing pieces I've heard (although there is an undertone of unrequited love, but it's far too late for him to get love back).Wink

As for MC, besides Lavender, I wouldn't really call any song on it a love song (and Kayleigh isn't really a love song if you look at it).

Script is indeed a love song... a lost love song.
I recently got my heart broken and these songs joined me through the process:
- Script
- Kayleigh
- She's moved on (Porcupine Tree)
- More Fool Me (well, not so prog...)
- Love Of My Life (Queen)

I'd second (or third, or fourth LOL) almost every song mentioned from the "golden era". yet, among these, Lady Fantasy stands out as my fave (despite being a suite rather than a song...)
 
Non prog: the first thing that came to my mind is "I don't know how to love him" from Jesus Christ Superstar. Also Gethsemane is another good love song (it indeed is! check out the philosophy behind it Wink) from this album.
 
if there's anyone who thinks there might not be love songs in prog, I'd recommend Peter Hammill's album with the same name Wink!
Listen to Turkish psych/prog; you won't regret:
Baris Manco,Erkin Koray,Cem Karaca,Mogollar,3 Hürel,Selda,Edip Akbayram,Fikret Kizilok,Ersen (and Dadaslar) (but stick with the '70's, and 'early 80's!)

Some of my favourite songs about love:

Thin Lizzy - Still in Love With You
Thin Lizzy - Romeo and the Lonely Girl (not exactly a ballad, but it's about love and it's a fantastic song)
Led Zeppelin - Since I've Been Loving You
Queen - It's Late

Script is most certainly a love song. It's actually about having a broken heart from his love leaving him for another man and then she gets married. It's about true love meaning that you want them to be happy more than you ("so I hold my peace forever, when you wear your bridal gown").

Lavender is a children's love song. The "Lavender's blue, dilly dilly" is taken from an old children's love song (well, sort of love). The song demonstrates the innocence of the love of children.

Also, Kayleigh is definitely a love song. The song is about realizing how much he loved his girlfriend(s) after they leave him (or he leaves them).

I still don't really consider it to be a love song, but more like a song of mourning. Different opinions, though, so no bother in trying to change mine.

Lavender is a children's love song. The "Lavender's blue, dilly dilly" is taken from an old children's love song (well, sort of love). The song demonstrates the innocence of the love of children.

I'm aware of Lavender being a children's love song, but besides that and to a lesser extent Kayleigh, I don't really see any love songs in the album).

Also, Kayleigh is definitely a love song. The song is about realizing how much he loved his girlfriend(s) after they leave him (or he leaves them).

Well Cyggie, we are all entitled to our own opinions. We can agree, however, that all those songs are awesome!
