Music for Fridays; Valentines Day

Take all those gazillion songs written about love; passionate love, unrequited love, love gone south, schmaltzy love, eternal love, physical love, love at first sight, etc. etc. ................... Which ones will be worthy of "Music for Fridays"?

So for this Valentines I have chosen two lighthearted songs;

Jason Mraz "I'm Yours", this one an acoustic version he did in Korea with his bongo sidekick Toca Rivera. Another boppy tune that you will find reverberating around your head, the tune emerging in whistles or hums at odd moments.

The second tune, a John Prine tune "In Spite of Ourselves" with Prine acoompanied by Iris Dement. Prine, always quirky, looks at love from our lowest common denominator, the not so nice, even eccentric personality traits that are always hidden on the first dates but, when they emerge, endear lovers even more.

To Jeanie, Happy Valentines..........Rod
