Another Valentine’s Day is here.
Lots of snow.
I bought a box of cards at CVS yesterday so that I can hand out child-sized Valentines to the little ones in my Music Together class.
There were cards which featured wrestling action stars and others with garish visual special effects.
There were cards publicizing children’s movies and TV shows.
I showed my final choice — puppies and kittens with accompanying tattoos — to a mom in the card aisle.
She assured me that most parents are OK with temporary tattoos.
We shall see…
I have long admired the song I included at the beginning of this post.
“And So It Goes” is one of Billy Joel’s most beautiful, wise ballads.
I recorded it with Bobbi Carrey — who provided harmony near the end — and Doug Hammer — who played piano and engineered simultaneously — at Doug’s great studio outside Boston.
It is one of the tracks on our CD, If I Loved You.
There are more tracks from that CD in the music player on the right hand column of this blog, including “I’ll Be Here With You,” “What Is This Thing Called Love?” “Dog At The Pound,” and the title track, “If I Loved You.”
I realize — not surprisingly —that almost every song in the right hand column of this blog is about love.
Music has an uncanny power to re-connect us with our hearts.
May you have much music in your life on this — and every — day.
