I Love You More

An experiment: to buy every song that sounded halfway interesting on iTunes with the title “I Love You More”. The idea of “loving you more” is sweet, and silly, and probably damaging. I think it is a cute game to play with children.

“I love you, Mommy.”

“I love you more.”

“No, I love you more!”

But among adults? “I love you more” is probably one of the saddest, and most final, sentences an adult would ever utter to another. Inequality is not sexy. So I’m curious about songs that croon, “I love you more”. Are they sad – as I think they should be? I will let you know what I discover.


  1. I love you more.

  2. What? It seemed like a no-brainer comment to me.
