Book of Love by Book of Love

Book of Love's self-titled freshman album also ended on a self-titled song. Although never released as a single, it remained one of their best songs, I always thought, neatly encapsulating everything that BoL did right on their first CD. Combining a cheerful yet dreamily romantic danceable sensibility with light synthesizers, numerous chimes (or "tubular bells" as they're often credited) and of course Susan Ottaviano's lush, nearly baritone feminine voice singing poetic imagery in the lyrics, it's a perfect send-off for their album, and a great iconic song if you've got to name a song after your group.
