I'm doing a research about the concept 'love is food,' which contains these kinds of expressions. She's starved for affection. I need love. He's love-starved. I can't live without love. He thrives on love. She's sustained by love. He hungered for love. All you need is love. Sweet love. Bitter love.
Is there any specific singers or genres of music or songs in specific period having this kind of language? These are the songs I've been found so far.
Thinking out loud (Ed Sheeran) I Will Always Love You (Dolly Parton) I need your love (Calvin Harris ft. Ellie Goulding) Sugar (Maroon 5) Honey Bee (Blake Shelton) Always On My Mind (Willie Nelson) Sweet nothing (Calvin Harris)
