I have 13,169 songs total. This means if I calculate the percentage ("love" songs divided by all songs) then I get .0643177, or about 6.43%. That's a lot of love, considering everything you could possibly write about. My friend Carly has 1,343 "love" songs and 22,033 (Jesus!) songs total, which makes her love song percentage a pretty solid 6%.
Because I'm at work and bored to death, I decided to go a step further. "Love songs" don't necessarily have to have the word "love" in it, so I compiled a short list of words that are synonyms of love and how many are on my iPod:
- passion- 30 songs
- marry+marriage- 7+14=21
- heart- 247 (I mean, christ, people- can a brotha get some original lyrics?)
- romance- 10
- sex (generalizing)- 58
- erotic (again, generalizing)- 1 (can you guess which song this is?)
My iPod thusly has a 8.5% uncreatively titled love related song ratio. What does yours have?
