Friday Morning Videos: Oh, Long-Distance Love!

To celebrate love, I give you the most unabashedly happy song ever performed, and an excellent example of that stepchild of love songs: the long-distance love song.

I have a running list in my head of long-distance love songs, and it’s time I got it down onscreen. Please add to the list.

  • “Walkin’ on Sunshine” by Katrina and the Waves
  • “All My Lovin'” – The Beatles
  • “Honey Pie” – The Beatles
  • “Leaving on a Jet Plane” – Peter, Paul and Mary (written by John Denver)
  • “Babe” – Styx
  • “So Far Away” – Carol King
  • “Digital Getdown” – ‘NSync (seriously)
  • “Rocket Man” – Elton John
  • “Space Odyssey” – David Bowie
  • “Every Time You Go Away” – Paul Young (written by Daryl Hall)
  • “Please, Mr. Postman” – The Marvelettes
  • “500 Miles” – The Proclaimers

  1. Digital Getdown! Love it! How about Ain’t No Sunshine by Bill Withers?

  2. Oooh. Good one!

  3. So Far Away by Dire Straits; Sweet Thing by Van Morrison (although I may be interpreting the long-distanceness); Faithfully by Journey… Ooo this is fun! I’ll be thinking about this all day.

  4. Oh, good lord. Faithfully. I hang my head in shame.
