"There are more love songs than anything else," Frank Zappa once pointed out. "If songs could make you do something, we'd all love one another." Frank was right, but I remain a sucker for a great song about L-O-V-E, and my favorite this year is "Love Is A Country" by The Wallflowers, a song from Jakob Dylan that's more poetic and profound than it is romantic. I absolutely LOVE this song, and suggest everyone take a moment to fall in love with it too. Here then is my own heartfelt Valentine's Day playlist for 2013. I've included a few suggestions from a few of the lovers and other strangers who follow me at www.twitter.com/Wildaboutmusic.
