On this Valentine’s Day, the Guitar Train will make a stop to look at another side of this very commercialized holiday. Quirky T believes that as The Beatles sang, “All You Need is Love” should apply every day, to everyone, not just one day a year in the form of romantic gifts.
Some people lose sight of the fact that there are other loves besides romantic love and become depressed on Valentine’s Day. So Guitar Train passengers, on this Valentine’s Day, let’s not forget about love of family, friends, country, and most importantly, love of and from God. Songs about those other loves include:
- “We Are Family” – Sister Sledge http://youtu.be/PDSSGyPurmE
- “That’s What Friends Are For” – cover by Dionne Warwick, Elton John, Gladys Knight, and Stevie Wonder http://youtu.be/xGbnua2kSa8
- “God Bless the USA” – Lee Greenwood http://youtu.be/Q65KZIqay4E
- “Only a Shadow” http://youtu.be/XUirGgSa_EY
Guitar Train passengers, please don’t be depressed this Valentine’s Day if you’re not in a romantic relationship. It is just one overly commercialized day. It doesn’t mean that you haven’t had romantic love in the past or won’t in the future; it just means you don’t today, this one day. Remember the other loves and especially that God loves you every day.
To the Guitar Train passengers currently in romantic relationships, think about acting like every day is Valentine’s Day. I don’t mean the flowers and the gifts. I mean the caring, love, and kisses. Like Quirky T always says, if you haven’t been brushing your teeth every day, it’s too late to start the day you have a dentist appointment.
Guitar Train passengers, how do you feel about Valentine’s Day? What are your favorite songs about love other than romantic love?
