The Look of Love, Dusty Springfield

The music was written by Burt Bacharach, and indeed, it was originally intended to be an instrumental. But later Hal David added the lyrics, and the song was published in 1967. According to Bacharach, the melody was inspired by watching Ursula Andress in an early cut of the film Casino Royale.

The look of love is in your eyes.
Is this the same concept as your eyes are the window to your soul?

The look your heart can't disguise
Is the heart the seat of love? How can the heart disguise the look of love? What is the relationship between the heart and the soul?

The look of love
Is saying so much more
Than just words could ever say
And what my heart has heard
In what way can the heart hear? If the heart can hear, what can the soul do?

Well it takes my breath away


After hearing this song hundreds of times, I now think that the entire local of the song is in the heart. At least that's what I'm grasping. Although, the above mechanisms elude a firm grasp.

_____________________________________________________

The look of love
Is in your eyes
The look your heart cant disguise
The look of love
Is saying so much more
Than just words could ever say
And what my heart has heard
Well it takes my breath away

I can hardly wait to hold you
Feel my arms around you
How long I have waited
Waited just to love you
Now that I have found you

Youve got the look of love
Its on your face
A look that time cant erase
Be mine tonight
Let this be just the start
Of so many nights like this
Lets take a lovers vow
And then seal it with a kiss

I can hardly wait to hold you
Feel my arms around you
How long I have waited
Waited just to love you
Now that I have found you
Dont ever go

I can hardly wait to hold you
Feel my arms around you
How long I have waited
Waited just to love you
Now that I have found you
Dont ever go
Dont ever go
I love you so

"Hearts don't think, they pay"
I am adding this not to dismiss your comments, but to support them. When your heart is involved, you cannot disguise it and you cannot stop it, you just have to let it take you where ever it wants to go. That is where the payment part comes in.

They say that the eye's pupil get bigger when you are looking at your love. Right?

I have heard that. The response is physical as well as emotional. They say (who are "they" anyway) that a woman has the same physical response when she eats chocolate as falling in love. (No, this is not the same as achieving orgasm! I only put this because I have had to correct 2 men in my office on this very point.)
Personally, I would have to disagree. Chocolate has NEVER given me the same feeling I have when in love. I have been truly in love only once in my life, and NOTHING has ever compared to the way I felt when looking at the man I was in love with. This feeling was intensified when he would look at me and I knew he loved me back. Hershey and Lindt have miles to go to recreate that in me.

I must say when I look at that photo of Ursula, I think goddess. She is stunningly beautiful and I am sure more than one man, and perhaps a few women have fallen for her. I purposefully leave out love because I think Americans tend to confuse lust with love, as well as sex with sexuality.

Ah Rhondish, it is only a matter of dosage, take one pound of rich dark chocolate, melt it, mix in one pint of cream, wait to it is pleasently warm but still liquid, ingest entire amount by pouring it into your mouth.
Let me know how that works out.

This tends to be the case. Followed by clumsy and sometimes unacceptable behavior... an experience not terribly different from being under the influence of a narcotic, one could imagine.

More bloody posts about love. I havn't found it yet OK? If I find any, I'll contibute something of substance to these posts. Sheesh!

Being in love is like sitting in business class seats. Without love is like sitting in coach; always wanting to be back in business class.

The song makes me nearly laugh and cringe at the same time. I might reply with more later, but maybe not.

TYSON: Glad you made the flight. After the captain has extinguished the "fasten seat belt" sign, you may feel free to move about the cabin.

I think the heart is a pump. The heart in this song, i think, is referring to the seat of emotion, the figurative heart, which I suppose must spring initially fom our brains.

Biblically the heart is linked with a future life... 'whatever you safe guard safe guard your heart for out of it is the source of life.' It refers to the seat of your emotion and motivation ...motive.

Besides that, your sense of humor as well as black humor has occasionally boosted up my susceptibility to something subjective in the cyber-world.
That's why I take pleasure in reading your posts.

Yes, I am a giant in that arena. And I am unanimous in that.

Although, my last post made me feel very slimy. It was taken from the Liberal's Book of Tactics

I can honestly say that I have never listened to this song in its entirety. I can't. For whatever reason, regardless of who's singing it, the sound of the words starts to grate on my nerves after just a few seconds of listening.

And I agree with Rhondish about women and chocolate and the feeling of being in love. Many times in the past I have thought that I was in love, only to realize now that I have found the one person with whom I am completely and totally in love, that I had no idea just how mistaken I was. And chocolate will never come close to recreating the feelings that I have for him...

As to the dilating pupils, I believe that this is true. When the pupils dilate, they allow more light to enter the eye, which I would imagine is the reason that some people identify their love as "glowing."

Now this bit sounds like something I will have to try - going gooeey at the thought. I tend to agree - not as good as love - but seritoninly as satisfying as some sexual encounters I have had.
