The simple answer is clearly Hoarfrost. Or maybe I Love You Golden Blue, but it might just be my intense love of that song clouding things haha. Personally, I'd go with Anagramma, because while it's not explicitly a love song, it just sounds like being in love...

Unwind sounds like a love song, to me. I've got no recollection of the lyrics but the song makes me feel fuzzy.

Actually, I just looked at the lyrics. IT IS A FUCKING LOVE SONG!!!!!

Yr chick'll totally dig it, fo sho.

Thanks for all the suggestions, guys. I decided to go with Sugar Kane, because not only is it a love song (of sorts) but it also serves as a good introduction to my favorite parts of the band's music-it's driving, fuzzy in some parts and crystal clean in others, discordant and melodic at the same time, and has a fun, freewheeling feel...

I was originally going to burn her a copy of Daydream Nation since that was the first complete SY album I heard and is generally considered their defining work, but then I remembered it's kind of long and sometimes she can have a short attention span (like me haha).

and for me its not only the lyrics, but also the sounds that create a such effect (talking more now about my 3 choices, not shaking hell and pch).
This.
PCH
Even Karen Revisited seems about some unfinished business, regardless of the few lines at the end. It's not like SY are famous for writing conventional love songs anyway. If she doesn't like the less pleasing to the ear numbers, chances are that she'll appreciate the poppier stuff, so you might as well make your choice a less restrictive one.

Also, forget about SY ''love'' songs. Put Duran Duran's ''Rio'' on your mixtape instead of this miserable indie sod stuff. She'll take her clothes off more promptly.

I always feel Reena as a powerful love song
The day I met my partner I went biking for half an hour through the empty streets of Holstebro, Denmark listening to it - and we've been in love ever since
p.s. how do i get rid of empty page under my name? Love the song but...feel like something different

Send "Massage The History" Ringtone to your Cell
 

(Vocals Gordon)

Oil dripping on my head
Let's go back to bed
Bring you back to me
Bring you back to me

Oil dripping on my head
Bring you back
From the dead
From the dead
Here's wishing you were here with me
Here's wishing we could massage
History, history
I'm witness to what you do
Anything that you feel
In between, in between
You and me
Bound at sea
Floating on debris
Yr so close, close to me
Yr so close, close to me

Oil dripping on my head
Let's go back to bed
[ Sonic Youth Lyrics are found on www.songlyrics.com ]
Bring you back
Bring you back
From the dead
From the dead
Wishing you were here by me
Wishing you were here
Let's massage history
All the money's gone
All the money's gone
Funny it was never here
It was never here
Here's a song
Here's a song
To massage along
History along
Come with me
To the other side
Not everyone makes it out alive
Come with me
To the other side not everyone makes it out
Alive
I want you to suck my neck...

Suck

(Vocals Gordon)

Oil dripping on my head


To me these lyrics means a description of very deep love between two persons.

I think there is something strangely romantic in Hoarfrost. It's not like, elated or giddy love...more like "grown up" love. It's different.
