It's also my personal (and probably unpopular) opinion that many of the greatest love songs ever written talk about things other than love. The Kinks' 'Waterloo Sunset' is a good example of that. But maybe that's my opinion because I'm not a particularly sentimental person...

I prefer "cool" in music to forced emotion, where you can hear someone trying to be hugely soulful. Which is why I prefer Grace to Janis. On the other hand, Grace sometimes sang nonsense with great conviction.
