It’s Valentine’s Day Week. Usually, I wouldn’t say a day like Valentine’s Day should be celebrated for a week, but this year is different. There’s a pandemic that limits a lot of activities. There’s also, if you’re in the Pacific Northwest area, a major snowstorm that’s shut everything down. So, I say we celebrate St. Valentine’s Day all week long. And what better way to celebrate than with a playlist? This week’s playlist, I Love You, is full of romantic songs that will make you want to canoodle and smooch till the snow melts!
I Love You features classics from the 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s, and beyond. Big radio hits such as “I Want to Hold Your Hand” by The Beatles, “A Whiter Shade of Pale” by Procol Harum, “Always” by Erasure, and “One Sweet Day” by Mariah Carey and Boyz II Men. Artists such as Paula Abdul, Mr. Big, The Ronettes, Peter Gabriel, Ben E. King, Seal, Bryan Adams, Prince, Billy Joel, and more all join in the chorus of saying I Love You. It’s all very romantic!
Enjoy I Love you with someone special. And stay safe, especially if you’re snowed in!
I Love You More!
Yes, this is not the first playlist of romantic songs I’ve made. Last year, I published Love & Love Songs, and the year before that I published Singing Love Songs. And speaking of singing love songs, have you checked out my cover vs original of The Cure’s “Love Song?” So many beautiful versions of an amazing song!
Last week, I promised a new article before the end of the month on the late, great, Sister Rosetta Tharpe. I’ve not been able to write the copy for this yet, but it’s coming. Do you have any suggestions on which songs I should explore? Any fun facts I should include? Let me know in the comments! And keep a lookout for this article coming soon!
Finally, I want to give a great big Happy Valentine’s Day to my partner in crime, and partner in life. Without her, my life without her would be empty, and full of spelling errors. Seriously, she proofreads everything I write (save for these playlists)!
I love you Cristina, you rock on, and rocksteady! That sounded clumsy and awkward, but oh well. Deal with it.
