A Very Touching Song, Even If It Tries a Little Hard to Be Cute

Even if you don't play video games and have no familiarity with Mario of Nintendo fame, you absolutely have to hear the "Mario Kart Love Song," written and performed by Sam Hart.

Listen and watch the video:

I love the lyrics about the "Blue shell is coming, so I'll go ahead; if you hang behind it will hit me instead.  But never look back, 'cause I'm down but not dead--I'll catch up to you."   It never occurs to the lover that he wouldn't go on ahead of his beloved.  Likewise, of course his beloved has to hang back, because how else can he be sure she's going to be all right?  Love always does stuff like that.

It may strike some people as a childish song, but I think it's a great song.

Also, another great romantic song is "The Glory of Love" (Peter Cetera).
