BlogCast: Saint Valentine’s Feast (or Famine)

To tap into the wisdom… as presented by “Saint Wiki”…

“Valentine’s Day, also called Saint Valentine’s Day or the Feast of Saint Valentine, is celebrated annually on February 14. Originating as a Western Christian feast day honoring one or two early saints named Valentinus, Valentine’s Day is recognized as a significant cultural, religious, and commercial celebration of romance and romantic love in many regions around the world.” [Read More Here]

As I now suggest two tracks to add to the above celeb’s playlist… and even echo one recommendation (Barry White)… I’ll also be presenting the two sides to this holiday, devoted to romance.

If you’ve found the love of your life, consider yourself the luckiest soul in the firmament… and be sure to profess your love for your soulmate… profusely, wholeheartedly and daily.

Undoubtedly, for you, the song found within your spinning head and beating heart… could easily meld with the upbeat, soaring musical mood set by Barry White’s Love Unlimited Orchestra… aptly titled… Love’s Theme… his instrumental / orchestral arrangement, which became a Billboard Chart topper a scant five days shy of Valentine’s Day 1974.

For those of us, who’ve found love to be rather elusive… perhaps composer Eric Kaz is on to something, which might best explain away our situation. After all… his song, Blowing Away, does present what has got to be the all time best lyrical hook on the subject…

“Love is blind and it cannot find me”

Linda Ronstadt will now sing her heart out to cover Kaz’s sentiments. Follow The Link to give a listen to Kaz, too.

Four-Play (Week #2)

My blog experiment to feature a four track long musical set per week per post continues… this being Week 2 of my projected 13 week run. If you missed last week’s post, it’s archived in my “music” category.

As for today’s post, I’ve segued some music specifically themed to celebrate this Independence Day here in America.

Oh… btw… I had a rough time deciding which YouTube clip to choose from for Neil Diamond’s track… so… if you’d like to view the alternative version’s imagery, my typed in artist/song title headline, below, is also a clickable link.

Don’t expect any in depth musical analysis because I present the selections you hear, here, purely for the enjoyment of great music.

I do realize that tapping into my vast musical library can involve genres, which cannot possibly please all the people all the time. So… if today’s selections are not your “cup of tea”… do click back again… you never can tell what you’ll be listening to next week.

Blog response will act as my Arbitron / Nielsen “radio ratings”… so… if you’ve enjoyed my “show”, click that “Like” Star. Of course, comments are always welcome, too!
