Love Story

What can you say about a twenty-five-year-old girl who died? That she was beautiful and brilliant? That she loved Mozart and Bach? The Beatles? And me?

The above quote was from the movie, Love Story, adapted from Erich Segal’s novel. I won’t spoil the story, but you should really go and find the book and read it, or just watch the movie. The story is, well, a romantic tragedy, but it’s worth the read, and there are many quotable quotes. A few of which would be:

Love means never having to say you’re sorry.

and

I was afraid of being rejected, yes. I was also afraid of being accepted for the wrong reasons.

On the topic of Love Story, I’m pretty sure that many people would think of Taylor Swift’s song when you hear the title, Love Story, especially those who were born in the 2000s. There are other singers who had sung songs that had a similar title, too, and one of the songs from Andy Williams, Love Story (Where do I begin) is really worth listening to.

The original instrumental version, composed by Francis Lai, had been an instrumental theme in the movie, Love Story  (1970) as well as a television series Love Story. Andy Williams was the first singer to record this song. It has, since then, been covered many times by different artists, including a piano version by Richard Clayderman.

Then, Taylor Swift came along.

Well, ending it off, happy 4th of July!
