Open to persuasion

I started thinking the other day about songs that have grabbed me immediately, either because of something about the music, or something about the lyrics.  And I thought of Joan Armatrading's "Love and Affection" (which you can see and hear here, find the lyrics here, and buy the album here).  It begins:

I am not in love
But I'm open to persuasion...

What a beautiful opening and a beautiful sentiment.  I don't think, really, there's any need to say anything more.
