Top 5 Ways to Say "I Love You" in a Roundabout Way

It took me a while to figure out what my "Top 5" list would be this week. Then, as I was eating chicken wings and drinking beer with Awmercy in honor of Valentines day, it came to me! Ways to say I love you without all the gushy stuff. They "beer and wings" version of romance -- complete with videos.

Suburban Kids with Biblical Names - "Loop Duplicate My Heart"

2. Aq
ueduct - "As You Wish"
(Recognize those lines from the most romantic movie ever?)

3. Boy Least Likely To - "Be Gentle With Me"

4. Soko - "Dandy Cowboys"

5. Laura Cantrell - "The Whiskey Makes You Sweeter"
I'm kind of bummed that I can't find any clips online. You'll just have to trust me on this one. A few lyrics:

Well, the whiskey makes you sweeter than you are.
If I'd quit drinkin' sooner, I'm sure I wouldn't have gone that far.
Now the haze has lifted, I can see.
That the whiskey makes you sweeter than you could ever really be.

Brasilliant said...

Hmm. That one never crossed my mind. Good call.

Loved this list/title/theme. Sorry to all the others, but this one was my favorite. Ironic too, considering I'm pretty gushy, haha
