Since it’s Valentine’s Day, I think we should share our favorite love songs! I have three.
“She’s Got a Way” by Billy Joel is really special to me since it’s the song I sang to Stephanie when I proposed to her. I also love the free, simple joy found in “I Will” by the Beatles. I actually recorded both of those for Steph at one point in college with the help of Garret Johnson and Ashley Parent. (Ashley helped me figure out the piano chords for “She’s Got a Way”.) They’re still on my iPod, and come up randomly. It’s fun to think back to those times.
My third favorite is “Silly Love Songs” by Paul McCartney and Wings. McCartney has a gift with melody that is really unmatched, in sheer volume or quality, by any other modern pop composer I’ve ever heard. The melody of “Silly Love Songs” is a great example of that.
What are your favorites?
