Grant McLennan was once described as, “One of the last real romantic bohemians” in an article that appeared shortly after his death in 2006. I always remembered that description and thought, how true it was…
The song above, Love Goes On!, was released in August of 1988 from the band’s sixth album, 16 Lovers Lane. Grant wrote the lyrics and sings it.
“The people next door got their problems, they got things they can’t name. I know a thing about lovers, lovers don’t feel any shame. Late at night with the lights down low, the candle burns to the end. I know a thing about darkness, darkness ain’t my friend.”
The song was unfortunately never released as a single. However, if you’re interested in seeing it performed live, click HERE. This is a full show from the early to mid-90’s. He plays it around the 50: minute mark.
