Exchange Exemplar: The History Of Love Songs

Jun 7, 2018

It's really not that long a stretch from "I Can't Help Falling In Love With You" (Elvis Presley, 1961) to "I'm a sucker for the way that you move, babe" ("Never Be The Same", Camila Cabelo, 2018). 

They are both songs of love.  There have been many through time, and the history is really interesting. 

Love songs truly challenged their cultures when they first appeared.  This is one of many things Ted Gioia reveals in his book Love Songs: The Hidden History

Ted visited in 2015, and we take his tour through love song history anew.
