"Love, Me" is a song written by Skip Ewing and Max T. Barnes, recorded by American country music artist Collin Raye, it was released in October 1991. In January 1992, the single became Raye's first Number One single on the U. S. Billboard Hot Country Singles & Tracks charts; the single has been cited as a popular choice for funerals. "Love, Me" is a ballad in the key of C major, accompanied by Fender Rhodes electric piano and steel-string acoustic guitar. It tells of a couple; the song's narrator tells of being with his grandfather, reading a note, written by his late grandmother back when both grandparents were younger. The grandfather explains that he had intended to meet her at a certain tree: "If you get there before I do, don't give up on me / I'll meet you when my chores are through, I don't know how long I'll be / But I'm not gonna let you down, darling and see / And between now and then,'til I see you again, I'll be loving you / Love, me." In the second verse, the narrator and his grandfather are at a church where they stopped to pray just before the late grandmother died, the grandfather reads the note and begins to cry, the first time that he saw his grandfather crying.
The music video was directed by Peter Lippman and premiered in late 1991

Gary Edward "Garrison" Keillor is an American author, humorist, voice actor, radio personality. He is best known as the creator of the Minnesota Public Radio show A Prairie Home Companion, which he hosted from 1974 to 2016. Keillor created the fictional Minnesota town Lake Wobegon, the setting of many of his books, including Lake Wobegon Days and Leaving Home: A Collection of Lake Wobegon Stories. Other creations include Guy Noir, a detective voiced by Keillor who appeared in A Prairie Home Companion comic skits. Keillor is the creator of the five-minute daily radio/podcast program The Writer's Almanac, which pairs one or two poems of his choice with a script about important literary and scientific events that coincided with that date in history. In November 2017, Minnesota Public Radio cut all business ties with Keillor after an allegation of inappropriate behavior with a freelance writer for A Prairie Home Companion. On April 13, 2018, MPR and Keillor announced a settlement that allows archives of A Prairie Home Companion and The Writer's Almanac to be publicly available again, soon thereafter, Keillor began publishing new episodes of The Writer's Almanac on his website.
Keillor was born in Anoka, the son of Grace Ruth and John Philip Keillor. His father was a carpenter and postal worker, half-Canadian with English ancestry, his maternal grandparents were Scottish emigrants from Glasgow. Keillor's family belonged to the Plymouth Brethren, an Evangelical Christian movement that he has since left. In 2006, he told Christianity Today that he was attending the St. John the Evangelist Episcopal church in Saint Paul, after attending a Lutheran church in New York. Keillor graduated from Anoka High School in 1960 and from the University of Minnesota with a bachelor's degree in English in 1966. During college, he began his broadcasting career on the student-operated radio station known today as Radio K. In his 2004 book Homegrown Democrat: A Few Plain Thoughts from the Heart of America, Keillor mentions some of his noteworthy ancestors, including Joseph Crandall, an associate of Roger Williams, who founded Rhode Island and the first American Baptist church. Garrison Keillor started his professional radio career in November 1969 with Minnesota Educational Radio Minnesota Public Radio, which today distributes programs under the American Public Media brand.
He hosted a weekday drive-time broadcast called A Prairie Home Entertainment, on KSJR FM at St. John's University in Collegeville; the show's eclectic music was a major divergence from the station's usual classical fare. During this time he submitted fiction to The New Yorker magazine, where his first story for that publication, "Local Family Keeps Son Happy," appeared in September 1970. Keillor resigned from The Morning Program in February 1971 in protest of what he considered interference with his musical programming; when he returned to the station in October, the show was dubbed A Prairie Home Companion. Keillor has attributed the idea for the live Saturday night radio program to his 1973 assignment to write about the Grand Ole Opry for The New Yorker, but he had begun showcasing local musicians on the morning show, despite limited studio space. In August 1973, MER announced plans to broadcast a Saturday night version of A Prairie Home Companion with live musicians. A Prairie Home Companion debuted as an old-style variety show before a live audience on July 6, 1974.
The show is punctuated by spoof commercial spots for PHC fictitious sponsors such as Powdermilk Biscuits, the Ketchup Advisory Board, the Professional Organization of English Majors. Keillor voices Noir, the cowboy Lefty, other recurring characters, provides lead or backup vocals for some of the show's musical numbers; the show airs from the Fitzgerald Theater in St. Paul. After the show's intermission, Keillor reads clever and humorous greetings to friends and family at home submitted by members of the theater audience in exchange for an honorarium. In the second half of the show, Keillor delivers a monologue called The News from Lake Wobegon, a fictitious town based in part on Keillor's own hometown of Anoka, on Freeport and other small towns in Stearns County, where he lived in the early 1970s. Lake Wobegon is a quintessentially Minnesota small town characterized by the narrator as a place "... where all the women are strong, all the men are good-looking, all the children are above average."
The original PHC ran until 1987. In 1989, he launched a new live radio program from New York City, The American Radio Company of the Air, which had the same format as PHC. In 1992, he moved ARC back to St. Paul, a year changed the name back to A Prairie Home Companion. On a typical broadcast of A Prairie Home Companion, Keillor's name is not mentioned unless a guest addresses him by name, although some sketches feature Keillor as his alter ego, Carson Wyler. In the closing credits, which Keillor reads, he gives himself no billing or credit except "written by Sarah Bellum,"
Love Me (Bee Gees song)
"Love Me" is a song recorded by the Bee Gees, released on the 1976 album Children of the World. It was included on the compilation album Love from the Bee Gees released only in the UK, it was written by Robin Gibb featuring Robin on lead with his vibrato. This makes this song a curio among the group's latterday tracks, as during the mid and late 1970s, Barry sang most of the group's leads. Robin sings a falsetto lead on the group's 1979 song "Living Together" on the album Spirits Having Flown, he sang falsetto during the chorus of his solo song "Remedy" from the 1985 album Walls Have Eyes. With Robin, Barry sang the lead on the track's middle-eight. Recording began on March 30, 1976 in Criteria Studios and finished on April 25 in Le Studio, Canada same day as "I Think I'm Losing You". Yvonne Elliman's version was released as a single and reached #14 in the United States, #6 in the United Kingdom, #9 in Ireland, #3 in New Zealand and South Africa, #15 in Australia, #11 in Canada and #16 in Netherlands.
Martine McCutcheon remade "Love Me" for her 1999 debut album You Me & Us from which the track - serving as the BBC Children in Need single for 1999 - was issued as the third single. It was released as a double A-side single along with "Talking in Your Sleep" and peaked at number 6 in the United Kingdom, it was re-released on 22 November in the week building up to the Children in Need event. McCutcheon performed the song at the Children in Need telethon on 26 November 1999, she was supported by 100 children between the age of eight and thirteen, who were selected through nationwide auditions. The successful children had the chance to spend a day in a recording studio with McCutcheon, before serving as backing singers for the song on live television. "Love Me" - 3:44 "Talking in Your Sleep" - 4:06 "Love Me" was recorded by Janie Fricke for her 1981 album Sleeping With Your Memory and cantopop artist Prudence Liew for her 1994 album Thoughts in the Night, Dreams During the Day.

Love Me (Tracie Spencer song)
"Love Me" is a 1992 song by American singer–songwriter Tracie Spencer. Released on February 4, 1992, this song is the fifth and final single from Spencer's second album, Make the Difference, released in August 1990; the song was written by Tony Robinson. Like "Tender Kisses," "Love Me" is a ballad; the theme of the song focuses on Spencer asking someone to love her. "Love Me" followed up Spencer's number-one success of "Tender Kisses" on the Hot R&B Singles chart by peaking at number 2 in April 1992. On the Billboard Hot 100, the single performed moderately, hitting number 48 by the summer of 1992; the video version of the song is different from the album version. The love interest in the video was played by Ray Leonard Jr. son of boxer Sugar Ray Leonard. It features some of the same couples from the "Tender Kisses" video and is filmed in the same way as "Tender Kisses" in appearance and the general look of sadness. One scene focuses on a man, who has a door on his chest indicating the door to his heart.
A woman standing over him has a window on her chest and reaches into the window to retrieve and flower and places it into the doorway on the man's chest
When the Going Gets Tough, the Tough Get Going (album)
When the Going Gets Tough, the Tough Get Going is the second full-length studio album by English new wave band Bow Wow Wow, released in 1983 by RCA Records. The cover photography was by David Bailey, the album credits gave "a kiss" to "Jim" and John Belushi, both of whom had died, it is the final album featuring all four original members of the band. On 25 May 2018, Cherry Red Records released the three-disc set Your Box Set Pet, which included When the Going Gets Tough, the Tough Get Going in its entirety on the second disc. Tom Demalon of AllMusic called the album "a well-polished, well-executed effort that holds some surprises in the fact that there is more diversity than on prior Bow Wow Wow records". Though Robert Christgau gave it a C+ and, in an negative review, noted that "Mike Chapman adds few if any hooks and Annabella Lwin shockingly little verve to their pattering Afrobeats". All tracks written by Bow Wow Wow
Last Time I Saw Him

It peaked at #9 Pop on the Top 100 lists for both Cashbox and Record World, as well as #10 in Radio & Records, it reached #35 in the United Kingdom. "Sleepin'" was the second U.

"Behind Closed Doors" was released and became a Top 20 hit in South Africa, reaching number 14 as well as climbing as high as #2 on the singles chart in Zimbabwe.
"Last Time I Saw Him" was a bit of a musical departure for Ross, with a sound combining country with Dixieland jazz. Shortly after its release, the song was remade by country music star Dottie West, who scored success with the single on the C&W charts, reaching #8; the album had a disappointing chart run, reaching #52, would be the last studio album Ross issued in the next three years until the Diana Ross album, released in 1976.
