True love can be whatever the individual experiencing it feels it is. It can be a feeling of intense happiness, comfort, security, or it can be, in some circumstances, sorrow, pain, and longing. As for love at first sight, I believe you can feel lust or aesthetic attraction at first sight, but not love. Love suggests a deep, emotional connection with a person, which doesn’t seem like it can be established the first time you interact said person.

Honestly, I feel as if the two songs we were given, “The Power of Love” by Celine Dion and “The Power of Love” by Huey Lewis and the News, didn’t accurately represent the idea of true love, but rather what love can be and/or feel like. A song that I feel better represents the feeling of love is, “She’s the Prettiest Girl at the Party and She Can Prove It With a Solid Right Hook” by frnkiero andthe cellabration. A specific lyric from the song that I think represents love very well is, “Just know that the best that I’ll ever be is whatever you make me and wherever you are…”, because a very prominent feature in most love is feeling like you’re a better person since they’ve been a part of your life; you feel as if being with them improves you as a person. Also, a main element in love is usually feeling very emotional towards them. Sometimes the feeling is happiness because of who they are, or sadness because of something they’re dealing with that you want to help them with. Their emotions can be very easily rubbed off on you, because you sympathize with them and you want to make them happy. This is very well represented by the lyric, “…the things that you say hurt me most of the time, but I’m on your side,”.  The general feel of the song is that love can be hurtful, but it’s worth it if you care about the person enough to stick it through with them, which I feel basically sums up the feeling of love.
