On the scene of the 56th Grammy Music Awards, when the tender melody of piano with the gentle voice poured out, people all over the world were attracted. The song All of me by John Legend told us a honey love story and made us cannot help exploring it in silence. Except for the skill of singing, the real feeling of the singer makes the song a legend.

 

 

When I first watched the MV, I was obsessed with the scene: the white and black frames, the sexy young lady and John himself who sang affectionately. At first, I was amazed by the acting skills of the two characters since the passion in their eyes made me think in spite of myself that they were the beloved ones of each other. As a matter of fact, the two in the MV have been a couple now. Surfing on the Internet, I find that the song is written by John himself and what is more impressive is that the song also plays a role in the wedding presents of their marriage. There is nothing that can be more fortunate than the fact that your lover memorized your love in the way of creating a song, since the song is going to be passed on and it will always suggest to each other the permanence. Thus many people are moved by their love and hold an expectation that they will own an eternal love, too. However, I hold some different points.

 

 

As is known to us all, the song is popular and it has been awarded various musical glories. Then here comes a question: why does the song of love always dominate the market? Except for the strong points such as the lyrics and tune of the song, the theme ‘love’ is the main part that makes the song so popular. The reason why we think highly of true love is exactly that the true love is hard to find. Just as an old saying goes: a thing is valued in proportion to its rarity. In the real life, I have witnessed more unhappy marriages than happy ones. So as far as I am concerned, I am not convinced of an ‘eternal love’. Please don’t regard me as a pessimistic guy, and actually, I am just realistic. All the romantic movies, writings and songs that are in praise of love are always widely popular. Why? Many people who are in love will identify themselves with the characters in the artistic works. Therefore owing to their expectation, there is no doubt that their own love will have the same happy ending as the ones in the artistic works. Nevertheless, we are in reality. The real life is different form a two-hour movie or a 254-page writing, and the love story in our real life will last about 60 years or even more. So stay awake, even though love makes people lost for the moment. As a result, although it really sounds sweet, there is no need for any pledge that you will love me forever. I will just cherish the present, since present is the best present.
