Oh! When love is gone, where does it go?

The title ‘Oh! When love is gone, where does it go?’ comes from a lyric from the band Arcade Fire and is about the myth of Orpheus and Eurydice. Orpheus may guide his beloved Eurydice out of the underworld, but on one condition: she must walk behind him and he must not look back at her. As they walk, his doubts grow: is she really still there? When his self-control finally collapses, he turns around and finds they were indeed together, but alas: just up to the moment he looked. In retrospect, ignorance was bliss.
