Love in Song

This year, Valentine’s Day weekend proved a time for pondering. Never more than now have I been so thankful and counted my blessings. Many people have come into my life, gifted me with their love and friendship and imparted wisdom. Their smiles, kind words and our shared silly moments have filled my mind and heart to bursting point on numerous occasions.

Love means many things to me, most of them centered around sharing and caring. While lavish gifts are lovely, they cannot replace a breathtaking kiss, a heart-stopping hug, or a steadying hand during times of turmoil. They claim diamonds are forever, but the love of a special person is far more valuable to me.

My list of things I love is quite lengthy, but one thing is certain--Music has always brought me immense happiness. Whether during those moments when I was learning how to play a guitar. Or when I played certain 45s in heavy rotation on my first turntable many Christmases ago. On the most awful day, when all around seems bent on causing frustration, harsh reality is pushed away once I start playing the stereo.

As many of my favorite musical performers were part of The British Invasion, I thought it would be fun sharing some of these performers’ love songs with you all today. May these tunes bring smiles and find you singing along with them.

Love Me Do -- Beatles

All You Need is Love -- Beatles

World Without Love -- Peter and Gordon

To Sir With Love -- Lulu

My Love – Petula Clark

If I Loved You – Chad and Jeremy

Wishing you all many happy and loving moments,

Shawna, I love the song, "To Sir With Love," and if those are recent shots of Lulu - she looks great! "Our" song (for my husband and me) is "These Little Wonders" by Rob Thomas (Matchbox 20). Every couple needs an "our" song!
