Falling in Love for the Very First Time: A Journey

Relationships and music have a complicated history. Even more complicated is the relationship itself between music and emotion. Here's a couple of songs that I simultaneously fell in love with immediately and equate to the feeling itself.
1Talking Heads
Speaking in Tongues


"This Must Be The Place" - arguably the greatest love song ever written. Paranoid, jarring, angular, sweet, groovy. It has it all. The lyrics are masterful. It makes me dance around my house with a lamp. I'm not as good as David, though, I've been through three already and have earned myself a reputation at the local Ikea.
2My Bloody Valentine
Loveless


"When You Sleep" - the greatest replication in aural form of the feeling of falling in love. It's beautiful, it's ugly, it's sweet, sickly even, and ever so slightly nauseating. The riff gives me butterflies. It literally sounds like Kevin wrote the prettiest song he could write only to layer it in obscene amount of effects by way of sabotage. It sounds like the song is attacking itself.
3Prince
1999


"Little Red Corvette" - I have to put condoms over my ears before I listen to this, who knows what kind of VD that guitar solo has. Trojan yes, but certainly not used. Wonderfully imagery, beautifully soaring vocals. What can I say? It's a classic of late night regret and spotted pasts.
4The Velvet Underground
The Velvet Underground


"After Hours" - straight out of the Wes Anderson playbook, imagine panning symmetrical shots of brown tone wooden walls and Owen Wilson and Adrian Brody trading drugs and record sleeves while Jason Schwartzman looks out of a window (oh, yeah, did I mention they were on a train?) at the stark cold of Bavaria. They're all authors and Edward Norton is the ticket collector but he's also a spy and an astronaut. The songs pretty cute, too.
5Tom Waits
Alice


"Alice" - Smoky, hazy, like the darkest, dankest Montmartre cafe. The sort of place Amelie daren't go. Tom Wait's voice is like whisky, at once it provides mercy and retribution, it turns into who we want to be for the evening, but alas, a warped version, a version we regret when we wake up. Achingly beautiful, desperate and depressing. Exactly what you want from a love song, right? Not a meet cute to be seen.
