Hey Girl Whatcha Doing?

Love is in da blog

Happy February! I’m participating in Bee’s fun music challenge again and hope you’ll join in (you don’t have to play every day).

Today’s theme is a pop song about love and I’m sharing a Dawn tune. “Knock Three Times” was a pop hit back in 1971 and given a lot of airtime. It was not credited to Tony Orlando & Dawn, according to Wikipedia, because that group hadn’t formed yet (with the “Dawn” we know as Thelma Hopkins and Joyce Vincent Wilson). Tony Orlando was working for a rival music company and tried to fly under the radar by recording this song with the other musicians as Dawn. It hit Billboard’s #1 in the US and other countries too.

Indianapolis

Happy February! I’m participating in Bee’s fun music challenge again and hope you’ll join in (you don’t have to play every day).

Today’s theme is a love song containing a location. Apparently that was my brilliant idea… and then I had trouble thinking of one. 🙄 But happily I remembered “Little Green Apples” with Indianapolis in it! I did not realize there were so many great covers… well, I like O.C. Smith’s. His voice sounds super sincere and loving. ❤️

One Summer Never Ends

Love is in da blog

Happy February! I’m participating in Bee’s fun music challenge again and hope you’ll join in (you don’t have to play every day).

Today’s theme is a love song in summer. I’ve always loved “Suddenly Last Summer” by the Motels (also a movie with Elizabeth Taylor), but it took on new significance in 2016. I haven’t written much about that on here; even now it’s not only still incredibly painful, but also I write and write and yet the things I meant to say somehow have eluded me. Very strange. I have written a lot of oblique poetry about the situation, which works better. Pure emotion, less concrete explanation.

But I have a couple things in draft. Puzzle pieces to help me glue my mind together a little more securely. For now, here’s this…

With Nets Of Wonder

Love is in da blog

Happy February! I’m participating in Bee’s fun music challenge again and hope you’ll join in (you don’t have to play every day).

Today’s theme is a love song from when we started school ~ I assume kindergarten. For me, this was 1966 and there were a ton of love songs around. I’m choosing a sweet fave by Bob Lind: “Bright Elusive Butterfly of Love.” 🦋

I guess it could be viewed a bit stalkerish by today’s standards, just like “Every Breath You Take,” and lots of romcoms too. What’s up with Harry leaving all those messages on Sally’s answering machine anyway? She told him to get lost!

Why Do You…

Love is in da blog

Happy February! I’m participating in Bee’s fun music challenge again and hope you’ll join in (you don’t have to play every day).

Today’s theme is a love song with flowers and I’m sharing one of my old faves. While the tempo is upbeat, the message is rather frustrating, with one person putting all the effort into the relationship and the other one acting selfishly. Isn’t that so often the way though? You always hope that things will change if you just keep trying…

The Last Farewell

Love is in da blog

Happy February! I’m participating in Bee’s fun music challenge again and hope you’ll join in (you don’t have to play every day).

Today’s theme is a love song regarding a breakup and here’s “The Last Farewell” by Roger Whittaker. This song always brings me to tears; it’s about a separation that no one seems to want. That feels unbearably sad to me, when it’s so difficult to find love in the first place.

He’s Even Combed His Hair

Happy February! I’m participating in Bee’s fun music challenge again and hope you’ll join in (you don’t have to play every day).

Today’s theme is a love song from when we left (high) school… and for me that was waaay back in 1979. Here’s a cute song from Rickie Lee Jones with lyrics on screen cuz they can be difficult to understand.

Today’s theme is a love song about travel and I’m sharing an oldie from Peter, Paul & Mary. I’ve always enjoyed their music and I hope you’ll give this one a listen.

Banana Pancakes

Today’s theme is a love song containing sweets (thanks to me!)… and since I’ve shared “Sugar Sugar” so many times before, today’s offering is Jack Johnson’s “Banana Pancakes.”

Far Beneath The Bitter Snows

Love is in da blog

Happy February! I’m participating in Bee’s fun music challenge again and hope you’ll join in (you don’t have to play every day).

Today’s theme is a love song about spring and this one by Bette Midler has always resonated with me. It’s so lovely and full of hope. Who knows, right?

When the night has been too lonely and the road has been too long
And you think that love is only for the lucky and the strong
Just remember in the winter, far beneath the bitter snows
Lies the seed, that with the sun’s love in the spring becomes the rose
