Lurve Songs…

14 Feb

Hey Er’body!

Every Valentine’s Day I basically repost this and it has generated a list of pretty great songs. Feel free to post suggestions for the list at the bottom (just make sure they adhere to the loose set of rules below).

Have a great Day!


People have mixed feelings about Valentine’s Day.

For some it is a nice dependable day where you can spend time with a loved one. Others spend it in a car with a discount bag of chocolate and their therapist (i.e. Taylor Swift). Some people might hate Valentine’s Day but everyone likes music.

Some of the lists iTunes had for Valentine’s Day songs were lame– so I compiled my own.

The guidelines for the list were:
1) Only one song per artist.
2) Songs have to be about love in some way. No break-up songs.
3) All songs have to be awesome.

*NOTE* The artist listed is not necessarily the original– just the artist I prefer performing the song
