“Let Me Tell You About Love” by The Judds
“Let Me Tell You About Love” is bit of a complex song in that its thesis sentiment obviously revolves around The Judds biggin’ up the power of love. But the way they go about getting that point across is by referencing a number of well-known yet in some cases ill-fated romances from the days of old.
Perhaps what they’re trying to get at is the human tendency to put our hearts on the line, if you will, despite knowing that something may well go wrong along the way. Or as The Judds put it, more succinctly interpreted, it’s hard to imagine this world we live in without the presence of romance. So even the likes of “Samson and Delilah” or “Bonaparte and Josephine” are, in their eyes, notable examples of the power of love.
