Is Bobby Short Wrong Too?

In response to My Favorite Love Song, my husband and friend, L, strongly felt that "You're the Top" is not a love song. To that I responded, "Well then, what kind of song is it"?

They weren't sure, but still maintained that "You're the Top" is not a love song. So I went to my friend, Google who sent me to his friend,, and Amazon showed me the above image. Is Bobby Short mistaken too?

U r always 24K!

You're The Top is a Cole Porter song from the 1934 musical Anything Goes. It is about a man and a woman who take turns complimenting each other. It is a great example of a witty list (rhyming) of all things good and beautiful like a dress from Saks or a stein of beer . . . however, a LOVE song . . . it really is not. "Under your skin" (on the Bobby Short Album) is more of a love song . . . My favorite love song is "smoke get's in your eyes" by the platters . . . “First verse: They asked me how I knew - My true love was true - Oh, I of course replied - Something here inside cannot be denied”

Why is Bobby Short an authority on love songs? Just because you can play the piano does not make one an authority on much besides playing the piano.

We'll just have to agree to disagree.

I have to agree with KROM and Bobby Short. She stated that it was HER favorite love song - which I happen to love also.
