Love Songs… Today on Valentines

Happy Heart Day!

On one of our first dates, my Valentine who now happens to be my fiancé picked up his guitar and played Train’s song, Hey Soul Sister. Eric is an accomplished musician and of all the songs he could pick, I listened carefully to the lyrics of his chosen song…

‘Your lipstick stains on the front lobe of my left side brains
I knew I wouldn’t forget you, and so I let you go and blow my mind
Your sweet moonbeam, the smell of you in every single dream, I dream
I knew when we collided, you’re the one I have decided who’s one of my kind
Hey soul sister, ain’t that Mr. Mister on the radio, stereo
The way you move ain’t fair, you know!
Hey soul sister, I don’t want to miss a single thing you do, tonight’

Today we are talking Love Songs.  Songs that make your heart, break your heart, and fill your aching heart.  We are talking songs that make the person who drives up adjacent to you at a red light wonder what sounds so good that it has your eyes shut and your head tilted back with your mouth open wailing?  Those songs that you crank up on  Alexa and bellow aloud in the shower.  The songs that make you dance as if no one is watching.

So, what is your favorite Love Song when you are feeling madly in love, or heart broken?

One of my parent’s favorite songs was Bill Wither’s Just the Two of Us.

I often think of their journey and listening to this on repeat on our home record player as they worked together creating a business.

‘Just the two of us
We can make it if we try
Just the two of us
Just the two of us
Building castles in the sky
Just the two of us
