It’s February and love is in the air thanks to Hallmark, Hershey’s and florists. Years ago, my husband and I decided to stop spending money on cheesy Valentine’s Day gifts and challenge each other to be more creative and thoughtful (and more frugal) when demonstrating our affection and admiration of each other.
One year, I loaded Allan’s MP3 player with a bunch of love songs and other tunes that made me think of him when I heard them. I think I may do this again, but with some of my more recent favorite love songs, like Guster’s Do You Love Me?
Hubby isn’t a huge Guster fan, but this song always puts a smile on my face and a little pep in my step. It’s a feel good song that sounds much like a sunshiny song from the 60s, reminiscent of something by Herman’s Hermits.So although he’s not a huge Guster fan, he’ll think of me bouncing around happily to the tune when he hears it.
I’d also add the soulful sound of James Morrison’s Precious Love. It’s another song reminiscent of the 60’s. I love the Ottis Redding sound and style of James Morrison’s demonstrates.
And since my hubbie is learning to play this song on the guitar, I would also add the acoustic version Train’s Marry Me. I couldn’t find any videos that weren’t blocked by Sony and the video is so lovely. I highly urge to follow the link and watch it on YouTube.
