Valentine's Day the Gift of Music
Gift of Music
Valentine’s day is almost here and I thought that I would write about a gift that I gave to my husband one year that he is still able to enjoy. I made him a CD with many of our favorite love songs.
This is a great gift idea for one of the best Valentine’s day presents especially if you are on a budget. The cost will be the price of a blank CD and perhaps a few dollars if you do not already have the music and need to download off of itunes or another music site. This year give the gift of music so that it can be enjoyed for many years.
To go along with the CD you could include concert tickets to one your Valentine's favorite music events that may be coming to a city near you. Flowers and Chocolates or a nice bottle of wine always go well with anything you may choose.
Below I have included a few of my favorite love songs from artists that we personally enjoy.
Van the Man
Top of my list would be Van Morrison “Have I Told You Lately That I Love You”
Our Wedding Song
When my husband and I got married our wedding song was “Can’t Help Falling In Love With You”, originally recorded by the “King” Elvis Presley, but we chose the version that Corey Hart sings.
“Red Roses For A Blue Lady” This song has been recorded and performed by many artists. My love for this song goes back to my childhood. My Dad loved to sing and he had a wonderful voice I must say. Whenever I hear this song it brings tears to my eyes as I miss him dearly.
First released in 1948, written by Sid Tepper and Roy C Bennett. This song was number 4 on the billboard charts for 19 weeks in 1949.
My favorite artist that performed this song would have to be Andy Williams although there are so many other greats that recorded this song as well.
“Feel Like Making Love” performed by George Benson one of my all time favorite jazz guitarists although he is not playing guitar in this video.
Strollin' in the park, walking in the dark
That's the time I feel like making love
When you talk to me, when you're touching me
Making my dreams come true
From Fleetwood Mac, off the album The Dance “Bleed To Love Her"
A truly beautiful song and one of my favorites written by Lindsey Buckingham.
Just one last one for you (although I probably could list about fifty more) and it is "Wonderful Tonight" by Eric Clapton.
