OK just so that Tameka and Piper and whoever else who might have been too afraid to comment on my anti -love song post, don't think I'm a total Valentine's day Scrooge I have come up with this little list to counter balance the other, I hope that post didn't give you all the wrong impression, It was meant to be funny and sarcastic, but maybe not my finest attempt! Anyway, I have no intention of sitting home Saturday, I have a singles ward dance to DJ, and I don't even think they make bon bons anymore so those fake plans aren't even really possible!
All of you who have Romantic shenanigans planned with that special someone tomorrow, you may want to light some candles, turn the lights down low, and set the mood with these greatest love songs according to Emily!
If you are a soft rock fan may I suggest. . . .
1. The Best of Times- Styx
Simply put. . . ."The Best of times, are when I'm alone with you!"
isn't that tender?
2. Into the Mystic- Van Morrison
"I Wanna Rock Your Gypsy Soul!" I don't know what that means but it sounds romantic. . . .right?
PS, not the best cover, but Van was no where to be found on YouTube, I suggest you find a way to hear the original!
3. I'll stand By You- The Pretenders
"nothing You Confess, could make me love you less!"
4. Trouble- Ray Lamontagne
". . . Well I've been, saved by a woman!"
I ask you. . . what girl wouldn't want this song sung to her?
5. Arms of a Woman- Amos Lee
"thousand miles from the place I was born, when she wakes me, she takes me back home!"
I don't understand why this guy isn't more famous, Amos Lee sings to my heart!
Or Perhaps you can only Celebrate your love with one genre and one genre only and that's R&B
well have I got a list for you. . . .watch out folks it's "Baby Makin'" Music Time!
1.Song For You- Donnie Hathaway
". . . But we're alone now, and I'm singing this song to you!"
This was the best cover I could find! But trust me the original is a gem!
2. A House is Not a Home- Luther Vandross
"I'm not meant to live alone, turn this house into a home. When I climb the stairs and turn the key Oh, please be there, sayin' that you're still in love with me!"
3. Untitled (How Does it Feel)- D' Angelo
I can only really make out three or four words in this song, but who cares. . . .D'Angelo's voice is sooooo fly! This song is probably my most favorite!
4. I'll Make Love to You- Boyz II Men
Boyz II Men always keep it classy!
5. Whenever, Wherever, Whatever- Maxwell
"And if there's a thing that you need, I'd give you breath that I breathe!"
What can I say I'm a sucker for Falsetto!
So Happy Valentine's day to one and all!
and of course. . . Peace Out!!!!
