Default What's the best Foos love song?

Of course we all know about Everlong but what in your opinion is the best "love song" the Foos have ever recorded?

In my opinion, the best love song Foo Fighters have ever recorded is Everlong. If you're saying apart from Everlong...

Hey, Johnny Park possibly. Maybe Have It All, it's not as straightforward as 'I love her, she loves me, we're so happy', alot more interesting. Another Round, Up In Arms and See You need some mention.

I only said that because Dave jokingly used to introduce it as 'a quiet little love song' on several occasions.

I know, I've been listening to a lot of my early bootlegs lately. And I said AML because, well, we all know what it's really about, and if that's not love, I don't know what is...

Ha ha, I remember a while ago some kid asking here what certain lines in AML were about, I think he was a bit shocked with the answers.

I thought that, but then again love doesn't have to have anything to do with... well I won't say, minors prowl this site!

A dear friend of mine was startled to learn the true meaning when I told her quite recently, and proclaimed she'd never hear it the same way again. I felt so proud.

It's not their best song, but I like 'If ever'. Just a simple song, simple lyrics, but damn well said.

Erm, Everlong!

My wife walked down the aisle to Everlong played by a string quartet on the happiest day of my life

At the first Foo show I went to in '96, Dave did this intro: "This is a little song about love. For those of you who've never been in love, this is what it's like." Then he ripped into Wattershed.
