Finding Love Songs on Twitter

At the Sparkplugging/One2OneNetwork event last week, one of the items in the swag bag was a gift certificate for iTunes.  I was really excited to see this, because I was getting a little tired of the same old music playing over and over.  It was time for some fresh music, but I had no clue where to start.  I’ve spent money on CDs before only to find that I only liked one song on an entire CD. 

I started wondering how I could get some new love songs to try out.  Then it hit me:


I was tired of hearing my son’s rock and rap music blasting in the house, so I knew I wanted to go for something mellow and meaningful.  So I put out this tweet:

And guess what?  I have a whole bunch of love songs to try out before I buy them on iTunes:

ZenMonkey @deafmom, “The Story” by Brandi Carlile.

Only one song was repeated twice as a favorite, Elton John’s Your Song.  I also received several via direct message, but since they came in privately, I’m guessing they didn’t want their choices to be shared.   I’m so excited that I have a list of songs to pull up lyrics to and to start learning some new music.  

Thanks, Twitterville!

My favorite love song is Just the Way You Are by Billy Joel.  This was the song played at our wedding. 

What’s your favorite love song?

    Sonny and Cher’s “I Got You, Babe”. It was our wedding song, and if you listen to the lyrics and realize how young we were when we got married (almost 21!), it’s very apropos!

    I’m partial to Just the Way You Are myself… it has a lovely saxophone solo. 🙂 I got to play it quite a few times with a band in college.

    I also like When A Man Loves A Woman, another song we played in that band that had a sax solo. I don’t know if I’ve ever heard a recording of it though.
