“What is Love?”

“What is Love?”


‘What is love?’

asked Howard Jones in 1983.


‘Love’ is a four-letter word.

It’s also an anagram of ‘vole’.

What more do you need to know?

“I wanna know what love is!”

sang the group Foreigner in 1984 (and many times since).

There are many, many songs about love,

There are not that many songs about voles. The only one I can think of is ABBA’s ‘Vole est vous’ – Which doesn’t translate to anything sensible in ‘any’ language.

Love is… was the phrase that started off many memorable quotes from the cartoons published in the 1970s that are still syndicated to this very day.

‘Love is… never having to say you’re sorry.’

Being one of the most popular – from approximately the time that the film ‘Love Story’ was released.

Love is Like Oxygen.

Love Hurts.

Love in an Elevator.

Love is the Drug.

Love Potion No. 9.

Love Shack.

Love Me Do.

All you need is…

a vole?

And so on.
