Rhythm of the heart


Valentine’s Day has come to have many meanings to many different types of people.

To some it’s an artificial holiday for an upsurge of candy sells. To others the day is a quiet testament that you are single. The those attached, it’s a day to celebrate with your significant other.

To help celebrate Feb. 14, it feels auspicious to create a list of 20 songs dealing with the subject of love: the good, the bad and the ugly.


“Every Little Thing” – The Police
“I Was Made To Love Her” – Stevie Wonder
“Destiny” – Zero 7
“God Only Knows” – The Beach Boys
“She Sells Sanctuary” – The Cult
“At Last” – Etta James
“Melt With You” – Modern English
“You” – Raheem DeVaughn
“Waiting For You” – Seal
“I Only have Eyes For You” – The Flamingoes


“Let’s Stay Together” – Al Green
“Fire and Rain” – James Taylor
“Obsession” – Animotion
“I Never Loved A Man” – Aretha Franklin
“Can we Pretend” – Bill Withers
“Most of the Time” – Bob Dylan
“Cry Me A River” – Justin Timberlake
“Return Of The Mack” – Mark Morisson
“I Heard It Through The Grapevine” – Marvin Gaye

Every now and then comes a song that the public think are romantic but if given close lyrical inspection are not so, these include:  “Broken Wings” by  Mr. Mister, “Black” by Pearl Jam. And the reigning champion…”Every Breath You Take” by The Police.

The last of which is not a song about love. This is a stalker song. Stop playing it at weddings.
