February…How Do I LOVE Thee? (Song 8 in the Countdown)Posted: February 8, 2014
Love Songs to Melt Your Heart and Move Your Soul: Song 8
Love is…laughing before the punch line (but the joke-teller doesn’t mind) because you both already know where this exchange is going.
What is love without laughter? Personally, I LOVE to laugh. It really is my favorite thing 🙂 This song made the list because it shows love from a yin and yang point of view. Keely Smith with her beautiful, sophisticated voice paired up with Louis Prima and his talented, yet cut-up, vocal abilities. It’s the kind of duality that I can appreciate. I mean, I really think there’s something to this whole opposites attract theory. And as a more serious type, I love (and NEED) to be around others who can let loose and appreciate the lighter side of life. They keep me grounded. So maybe it’s not so much that opposites attract as it is that opposites complement and interconnect with one another. And when it comes to love, this dynamic just might be a good thing.

***This post is part of an ongoing series. As part of my cup half full approach to loving the month of February, I vow to jump in with both feet and embrace the whole Valentine thing with my own custom list of Love Songs to Melt Your Heart and Move Your Soul. Ambitious? Yes! Bold? Absolutely! Crazy? You betcha! Pointless? On just about every level. Regardless, let’s give it a go—I mean it’s February and how else am I going to get through the coldest, bleakest, cloudiest, shortest (and longest at the same time) month on the calendar. Let the countdown to Valentine’s Day begin! I (gritting teeth) LOVE February, how about YOU?
