Love and Chocolate

Happy Valentine's Day, my lovelies! I hope you are having a wonderful day full of love and joy. I am donning red, enjoying chocolates and generally riding the Valentine's Day high. Okay, at this point it might just be a sugar high, but I truly have been in a good mood since I got up this morning.

Back when I was in my early to mid-20's (also known as 13,000 years ago), I was fooled into thinking that I had to dread Valentine's Day if I didn't have a boyfriend on February 14th. How incredibly silly. Whether you're in a relationship or not, love is everywhere, and I, for one, always have a great time acknowledging that love every year. Plus, chocolate is delicious whether you're dating someone or not. If you need a help getting into the mood this holiday, I can recommend a few of my favorite songs about love. Off the top of my head:

  • The Very Last Time-- Pat Johnson and the Maydays
  • It Must Be Love-- Madness
  • You're All I Need To Get By-- Marvin Gaye and Tami Terrell
  • Crush Story-- Too Much Joy
  • Hold Me Tight-- The Beatles
  • True Love-- X
  • I've Been Waiting-- Matthew Sweet
  • You've Really Got A Hold On Me--- Smokey Robinson and the Miracles (yes, it's a song about completely unhealthy, dysfunctional love, but that totally counts)
  • Sweet Darlin'-- She and Him
  • Be My Baby-- The Ronettes
  • Beneath the Blue Sky-- The Go-Go's
  • River Deep, Mountain High-- Ike and Tina Turner
  • Rhythm of Love-- Plain White T's
  • The Real World-- The Bangles

Tonight I'm going to continue celebrating by singing a few songs and enjoying a few cocktails. And knowing me, probably eating some more chocolate.
