    Wings: Silly Love Songs
    a song called teen angel hit the number one spot around 60 years ago (Mark Dinning)
    at the time I thought it was a beautiful song
    now it seems rather silly

    I thought you were younger than that actually.

    Anyway, Teen Angel. Is that the song sung by Frankie Avalon in the movie Grease?

    I'm not familiar with the Frankie Avalon song
    the song I'm referring to is about a young girl dying in a train car accident
    a very sad affair

    Doesn’t immediately sound like a love song

    Today is a great day
    I give the stars to you, I give the moon to you/ Raise the sun everyday for you
    I'll turn into a candle and let myself burn/ Just to shine a light on you
    I'll give everything I have to you/ As long as you're happy
    You give me new meaning everyday/ Though life is short, I'll love you forever, never abandoning you.

    You are my little apple/ I can never love you too much
    Your red face warms my heart/ Lighting the fire, fire, fire, fire, fire in my life
    You are my little apple/ Like the most beautiful cloud in the sky
    Spring arrives again, and flowers bloom all over the mountainside/ I reap the hopes that I sowed.

    .................................................

    This is a song called "xiao pingguo", or "little apple". Very popular in China, originally from the movie "Old boys: the way of the dragon".

    I regularly change the words to "Ni shi zheige teng zai wo pigu" (as opposed to "Ni shi wode xiao xiao pingguo" ), much to the amusement of my daughter.

    ABBA rarely fails to perform what I feel, and in the most embarrassing way.

    *gosh! I hope this works, as I do not think I have ever copied a YouTube here before.
