Another year has come and with that year has come another Valentine’s day. While all my friends seem to get married or find themselves in long-term relationships, I still find myself sitting alone with my record collection.
As I have become more independent in my thinking and thoughts, I have also become a tad sour. I now love going out to eat by myself, but now the couple across the way really wears me out. I go to a movie and see a couple, and I have a gag reflex. If I see one more marriage album I might burn it!
Ok, so really I am just all out bitter.
For this post Valentine’s day playlist I have collected some of my favorite love songs. I hope you enjoy.
- “Down With Love” -Judy Garland
This one perfectly sums up my feelings on love and all its friends. For my life the moon is wrapped cellophane. I refuse to be a member of boo-hoomanity any longer.
2. “Goody, Goody” -Della Reese
Basically the 1936 version of Kelly Clarkson’s “Since You Been Gone.” If this is all I have to look forward to than love is not for me!!
3. “My Big Iron Skillet” -Wanda Jackson
I am not much of a cooker but skillet’s sound a lot more attractive than silk. Here’s more on this song.
4. “The Walk” -Mayer Hawthorne
Guns and ammo? I can’t think of a better combination.
5. “My Coloring Book” -Bobby Rydell
Then there is heartbreak. I now refer you back to number 1.
In the end, I truly hope everybody had an amazing Valentines day as reflected in the songs I have chosen. If you’re down with love, and cooked with a big iron skillet yesterday, goody goody!
Now I am going to take a walk to my coloring book. Oh, those are bullets not crayons you say?
I have equal use!
Love to all the lovers from your optimistic vinyl spinning friend.
