We all love certain songs more than others

What is it that drew you to those songs?
Each song I love usually has a resonance with me. There was something within the song that drew me in.
With these two following songs it was a particular line that resonated.
[b]The Archies - Sugar Sugar[/b]
The line being - I just can't believe the loveliness of loving you.

[b]Filter - Take A Picture[/b]
The line being - Hey Dad, what do you think about your son now?

in like janis ....all of it Gusman

And you measure for wealth by the things you can hold
And you measure for love by the sweet things you're told
And you live in the past of a dream that you're in
And your selfishness is your cardinal sin
And you want to be held with highest regard
It delights you so much
If he's trying so hard
And you're trying to conceal your ordinary way
With a smile or a shrug
Or some stolen cliché
But don't you understand
And don't you look about
I'm trying to take nothing from you
So why should you act so put out, for me
'Cause emotionally, you're the same basic trip
And you know that I know of the times that you've slipped
So don't try to impress me
You're just pins and paint
And don't try to charm me
With things that you ain't
And don't try to enchant me with your manner of dress
'Cause a monkey in silk is a monkey no less
So measure for measure, reflect on my said
And when I won't see 'ya then measure it dead
'Cause don't you understand
And don't you look about
I'm trying to take nothing from you
So why should you act so put out
And sit there and wonder in doubt
For me
