I had today's post written and ready to go, then I remembered Valentine's Day is just around the corner. As a person facing yet another solo Valentine's, I'm looking for a reason to get in the spirit of the holiday. Let's put together a Love Song playlist. This one should be easy - love seems to be the most popular topic in music. Let's try and include all kinds of love: new love, sweet love, sultry love, love found and even that elusive love eternal.
Our goal - a playlist so full of love that even a Valentine-Scrooge like me can get into the holiday. For those of you not celebrating Valentines Day - I'm guessing even without a holiday there are always reasons to want a great playlist full of love songs. Here are a few of my favorites:
Peter Gabriel - In Your Eyes
Bill Wither's - Ain't No Sunshine
Ray LaMontagne - Let it Be Me
Elvis Costello - She
Sarah McLachlan - I Love You
Band of Horses - No One's Gonna Love You
Dixie Chick's - Cowboy Take Me Away
I am so grateful to you all for your help with last week's list - Little Ones. You came up with some amazing songs and I can't wait to share it with my niece. I've loved listening to it and I'm sure she will too. I'm excited to see which of the songs she picks up on and can't wait to see your musical tastes develop.
To hear the playlist click on the sideways triangle in the middle of the embedded player above. To skip to the next song or go back to the previous one click on the < or > on either side of the player.
Thanks to all of you for your comments and suggestions - every week I walk away having heard a new song or artist and adding them to my every growing list of favorites. Don't forget to share your favorite love songs in the comments.
