    I've never watched Philidelphia (hate sad movies) but will grit my teeth and grab a box of Kleenex to catch that scene

    TRIVIA:
    The song "I Love You" that the lovely Averagejane is referencing was originally written and performed in the late 1970's.

    The name of the original artists that wrote and recorded it were the "Climax Blues Band". I think their version is head and shoulders the best. Check it out. It was a pretty big hit.

    It has been remade a few times, most recently by "Nine Days" and that is probably the version you have been hearing on the radio.

    Here are the full lyrics:

    When I was younger man I hadn't a care
    Foolin' around, hitting the town, growing my hair
    You came along and stole my heart when you entered my life
    Ooh babe you got what it takes so I made you my wife

    Since then I never looked back
    It's almost like living a dream
    And ooh I love you

    You came along from far away and found me here
    I was playin' around, feeling down, hittin' the beer
    You picked me up from off the floor and gave me a smile
    You said you're much too young, your life ain't begun, let's walk for awhile

    And as my head was spinnin' 'round
    I gazed into your eyes
    And thought ooh I want you

    Thank you babe for being a friend
    And shinin' your light in my life
    'cause ooh I need you

    As my head was comin' round
    I gazed into your eyes
    And thought ooh I want you

    Thanks again for being my friend
    And straightenin' out my life
    'cause ooh I need you

    Since then I never looked back
    It's almost like livin' a dream
    Ooh I got you

    If ever a man had it all
    It would have to be me
    And ooh I love you

    You're right Daddio. *Blush* I even mixed up the opening lyrics...I must have been dreamily thinking of my high school boyfriend singing in my ear...
