THE Quintessential Unrequited-Love Song | Reviewer: FaireMaiden | 5/19/12

For anyone who has love and lost, this is the quintessential song of unrequited love. Regret and heartache infuse this song with Schenker's genius... he makes that guitar weep. Buchholz' bass-line keeps us rooted-- there is no escape from our despair. And Klaus Meine's vocals convey so tragically the stunned disbelief that it's 'OVER'... and the pitiful, shame-filled 'begging-on-one's-knees' that everyone who has ever loved like this has been reduced to. Yes. I speak from experience.



He starts off hopeful, but by the end of the song, one comes to understand that 'it's never gonna happen'. Which, of course, brings us to the fact that 'you can never go back' and undo the damage done; for the 'other' has reached a 'point-of-no-return' and emotionally walked away. There is no way to get back the 'feelings' of exuberant love one felt in the beginning of a love affair.



This song absolutely captures the old quip, 'the first cut is the deepest'; for, anyone who has so loved and lost, will never love like this again... so fully, so completely, so vulnerably. Never again will they trust their heart so utterly to another. And there is a grief in that all its own; for it is the death of one's 'romantic' notions of 'love everlasting'... the death of trusting that the 'beloved' cannot/will not ever hurt you, abandon you, change their mind/heart about you. It is the death of blind trust... the death of our innocence.



Kudos to the Scorpion’s for so giving such a powerful voice to the shock, sorrow, and heartache of unrequited love to help us thru the healing process.



In my parent's time, the quintessential song of unrequited love was, 'The Man That Got Away', sung best by Judy Garland.



Alas, one more song that captures such unrequited heartache is Melissa Etheridge's, 'I'm The Only One'.



I do not consider any of these songs, 'Love Songs'. For me, they are songs of the pain of co-dependency-- useful as we go thru the grieving process, (as we can easily relate, and cry our eyes out, to them); but to be discarded from our repertoire as we become healed, wiser, and ready for real love to enter our life. Otherwise, we remain trapped in the past.



As far as I'm concerned, the best love song ever written is 'Ebb Tide' as recorded by Bobby Hatfield of the Righteous Brothers.

Still loving you........ | Reviewer: Anonymous | 3/8/10

Being a "Hardcore" Scorps fan for 30 + years, this song brings back so many memories of days gone by. To me..It explains the feelings of the Man to the Woman with no exceptions. He tells of his love, his loss and his longing for the love he once had,but it seem's to be slipping away unless he can convince her of his "True" feelings
and how he want's to be the same as it it once was. I had a love at a time, and this was OUR song, my love and wanting for her never went away
after 25+ years...It make's me remember how i tryed so very hard to convince her of my love and devotion. I still get "Teary eyed" when i hear this song. "Greatest Love Song Ever Written"
nothing will ever effect my Heart & Soul as this song has!!! Love you Scorps..Best wishes & Happiness in your day's to come..You WILL BE MISSED GREATLY #1 Fan in Nashville,Tennessee Mike:)

This song has seriously haunting guitar play, with lost love lyrics that I think most people can attribute someone special they wish they had done things differently with....Thankyou Scorpions ..Still Loving you will always be one of my favorites.
