Sitting In A Tree…

29 Jun

The upcoming nuptials of my cousin and his wife-to-be inspired me to put together a comprehensive list of love songs/songs about love. I’ve been working on a playlist entitled “songs for your honey” over the past few months and it seemed like an appropriate time to get my act together and publish it to 8tracks. I decided not to limit myself to a single CD’s worth of songs and instead included tracks from a variety of genres and time periods. I came up with 64 songs that make me think about my sweetie. The initial thought was to include “When I’m Sixty Four” in the mix, but 8tracks limits you to two songs per artist and I chose two different Beatles songs. Finding so many songs about love was not a challenging task, as musicians seem to really love writing about L-O-V-E. And how wonderful to listen to all of these songs that ooze so much emotion. Some of it gushy and mushy, some sweet and tender, some simple and to the point, and some just plain raw. I’m sure that there are many, many other songs that I failed to include. I encourage you to share some of your favorite love songs. Perhaps I can publish volume 2 sometime in the future.

For now, enjoy the love…
