    Upon further review it was Feb 1.Charlotte is the only city that got 2 shows on the first leg.I guess we in NC are the king of fans!Charlotte was opener for Roth coming back and Greensboro just an1 1/2 away was opener for the return of Sammy.Right?

    Even though those are all the songs with "love" in the title, some of those of course are more anti-love songs with anger and sadness as the theme. I'd say this is the list of mushier happier love songs:

    1. You Really Got Me
    2. Feel Your Love Tonight
    3. Dance the Night Away
    4. In a Simple Rhyme
    5. So This Is Love?
    6. Little Guitars
    7. Why Can't This Be Love
    8. Dreams
    9. Love Walks In
    10. When It's Love
    11. Feels So Good
    12. Top of the World
    13. Can't Stop Lovin' You
    14. Not Enough
    15. Take Me Back (Deja Vu)
    16. Once

    In a Simple Rhyme is a great love and devotion song. I also love the message of Top of the World..."I know that she believes in me, that's all I ever need!"

    Just for the fun of it, may I point out, that the only "era" that managed to avoid the word love on an album was VH3

    (ok, it was close. They left off That's Why I Love You at the last minute, so that basically doesn't count )

    Yeah, "TOTW" is one of my wife's (and my) favorites because--I think Sammy said it best when he would say before they performed the song on the FUCK tour: "You gotta sing it at the top of your lungs because it makes you feel so fuckin' good!"

    And I think "IASR" might be the deepest/Sammiest Dave era love song because of the whole "She made her mountains sing..." part. That's as romantic as the guy gets! Well, I guess that and "Little Guitars" now that I think about it. I say that because those two songs are the only ones where he truly sings about love--versus just being infatuated with a girl probably just because of the way she looks (like "Dance the Night Away" and "So This Is Love?").

    But I better stop talking about it before I get lynched for enjoying love songs by my favorite band, right?
