Love song #5

John Prine & Iris Dement – In Spite of Ourselves

(skip on to 1:30)

He ain’t got laid in a month of Sundays
I caught him once and he was sniffin’ my undies
He ain’t too sharp but he gets things done
Drinks his beer like it’s oxygen
He’s my baby
And I’m his honey
Never gonna let him go

The Beach Boys – God Only Knows

I may not always love you
But long as there are stars above you
You never need to doubt it
I’ll make you so sure about it

Love song 3

She & Him – You really got a hold on me

I don’t like you but I love you
Seems that I’m always thinking of you
Oh, you treat me badly
I love you madly
You really got a hold on me

Love songs

In the days leading up to V Day, I am going to post my favorite songs to listen to when I am twitterpated.

Josh Ritter – Temptation of Adam

Oh Marie if you would stay then we could stick pins in the map
Of all the places where you thought that love would be found
But I would only need one pin to show where my love’s at
In a top secret location three hundred feet under the ground

Be mine

It is nearly that time of year again. Time to love or hate life. Regardless of the category you fall in (mine is usually hate, but this year I am very much in love with the holiday, so I will be as ridiculous and sappy as possible), here are a few valentines to get the romance started.

He's on fire

Oh deer.

If only…

…we could return to the 2nd grade state of mind.

I was reading this article in the Christian Science Monitor about modern day communication and Facebook friend requesting being the equivilant to a 2nd grade valentine. The part describing the 2nd grade valentine was my favorite part.

“Our second-grade class learned how to cut valentines out of red construction paper. We wrote notes on them, folded them, and gave our hearts to one another. Boy, girl, brainiac, cutie, cool kid, shy kid – everyone got one. And unless there was a budding Robert Browning in the class, the sentiments were as innocuous as the sayings on those sugary Sweetheart candies that magically appear this time of year: “Be my Valentine.” “Your secret pal.”

happy v-day

The next day, nothing had changed. Paper hearts have not been known to alter the clumsy dynamic of 7-year-olds trying to be friends. That takes a lifetime of laughter, embarrassment, and tears.”
