Heartwarming: Paul Williams

There are those who listen, and those who wait to talk. This album is dedicated to the listeners.
— Back cover, Just an Old Fashioned Love Song

Paul Williams's songs are basically a master class in Heartwarming Moments.

  • "Rainbow Connection", the embodiment of Follow Your Heart. An all-encompassing anthem for multiculturalism, LGBT rights, charitable foundations... you name it. It's just so overwhelmingly positive that one can't help but feel better when they hear it.
  • How many weddings (or graduation ceremonies) have been accompanied by the undying "We've Only Just Begun" over the decades?
  • "Back to Love Again", Paul's autobiographical song about how love saved his life. Also his first song in almost twenty years.
    You found me with the brokenhearted / You promised we would finish what our kiss had started / You took me in your arms / built my heart a nest / and loved me back to life / you brought me back to love again
  • "When my music meets your science, they're the biggest of the giants..."
