The power of love (songs)

by Metro Music Makers instructor Aria Taboada

February 14, the day of love, is just around the corner. It’s the day where we celebrate romance with lots of chocolate, hearts and flowers. I personally do not think that Valentine’s Day is complete without a good playlist of love songs. If you know what you are looking for, you can find a playlist for any occasion in any genre. Though I would love to share from every genre and sub-genre, there are so many! So instead, I will break music down into four broad categories: classical, jazz/blues/big band, rock/pop and country. Here are some of my personal favorites; what are some of yours?

“Reverie” by Debussy
“Salut d’amour” by Elgar
“Liebesleid” by Kreisler
“Gymnopédie No.1” by Erik Satie
“Meditation” by Massenet
“Symphony No. 3” by Brahms
