I guess by now most people know I love to dance and love music, and I can't think of any better way to celebrate love and romance than with songs dedicated to these blissful ideas.
Do you remember the first song you fell in love to? I do. For me it was Dancing Queen by ABBA, and I fell madly in love with teen heartthrob Shaun Cassidy. Do not ask me why except he was cute and sweet and could sing Da Do Ron Ron with a straight face and such earnest resolve that I thought he truly meant it, whatever it was. What can I say? I was young and passionate and hormonal, whereas now I'm old and passionate and hormonal. Besides, who can resist a guy who can pull off feathered hair AND a tennis sweater around his shoulders?
Aah, those were the days, weren't they? Then we all have to grow up and love gets more complicated and strange and wonderful and, well, lovelier. I don't know about you, but I think I have a song for every relationship I've ever had, good or bad. Ever hear a song on the radio and have it trigger a memory of a paramour from the past? Music and love--they go together like ice cream and cake, like wine and cheese, like pizza and beer. You get the idea. :)
Below are some songs about love, plus Dancing Queen and Da Do Ron Ron (Shaun, call me!). Feel free to share your own favorite love songs. What songs did you fall in love to?
