It’s All About Love

This medley, seemingly unconnected in any way, came about because two events happened on this date in music history.

On June 23, 1967, producer George Martin recorded the orchestra background – beginning with the first few bars of the French national anthem, La Marseillaise – for All You Need Is Love, which would be The Beatles contribution to Our World, the first live, international satellite television production, which was broadcast two days later to an audience estimated to be over 500 million people around the globe.

The second event was the release of Dean Martin’s Everybody Loves Somebody on June 23, 1964. Coming in the midst of the British Invasion, it surprisingly climbed to #1 on the Billboard Hot 100.

Okay, so I had two songs with “Love” in the title. What could I do with that? Then it hit me. Add songs from different genres but still containing “Love” in the title.

And so here it is; pop, country, crooners, and even a little ditty from the psychedelic genre. Every song has that word in the title. So yeah, it may sound disjointed but how bad can a “Love” song medley be?

    The book of life is brief once the page is read! But love prevails, and which is better giving love or receiving love? This has been such a wonderful medley, making me feel very melancholy. I have listened to it 2 1/2 times, and may have to play it again. Love the Beatles, and all you need is love! But I also was so thrilled with Perry Como and Dean Martin and their timeless melodies that only a crooner can sing. This whole medley was tops in my book! Ray this was definitely a good choice. You’re the best πŸ₯°

      The only thing we never get enough of is love; and the only thing we never give enough of is love.

      Thanks, Fred.
      This was just another reminder that wonderful music came from artists other than rock singers.
      It’s also a reminder that we are most alive when we are in love.
      Love Ya!
