Happy Valentines Day..or Life as a Playlist-Part 1

Happy Valentines Day! I have always enjoyed Valentines Day, I guess because it was my dad’s birthday and because I enjoy any excuse to eat candy and birthday cake.

Although the Cottage has been booked for a while (by a sweet couple who are repeat guests), the White Pine Cabin is available for a special couple! Sized just right for 2 and priced just right so you have plenty left over for the fanciest of gifts~only $100 per night. You can hardly get a hotel room for that!!

Now, for Life as a Playlist…Anyone who knows me knows I am never far from my iPod. Archaic and beat up as it is (she’ll be coming up on her 7th birthday soon), she is never far from my side. I have a playlist for every occasion. So, in the spirit of Valentines Day, I’ve created a playlist of my favorite love songs that rock…no sweet sappy slow stuff here!  So, grab your favorite life partner and rock on! In the spirit of fair play, I’ve included an equally rocking list of somebody’s done someone wrong songs…Submitted for your approval:

1) Stole my Heart by Little and Ashley

2) Must Have Done Something Right by Relient K (who just happen to be from Canton, Ohio-DearFarmerHusband’s hometown-Salut!)

3)Grow Old With You by Adam Sandler. I am trying to talk Emily and Clayton into walking down the aisle to this when they get married. I’ve even found a local guitarist/singer who already knows it!

4)  Bang Shang A Lang by the Archies. I grew up watching the Archies on Saturday morning (way baaacck when that was the only time you could see cartoons!!) and still have my comics and record albums. (You can skip to .50 if you aren’t interesting learning the Bubblegum from Jughead!)

5) From My Heart To Yours by Laura Izibor

6) Ain’t Nothing ‘Bout You by Brooks and Dunn

Now, in the spirit of fair play…

1) The Happening by the Supremes.

2) I’m So Happy I Can’t Stop Crying by Toby Keith and Sting

3 You Dropped A Bomb On Me by The Gap Band. Funny story-neither of the farm dogs are a fan of the Gap Band. When I play this song, FarmDogBuddy gets all uptight when he hears the sounds of the bombs dropping. When I play Burn Rubber, FarmDogDougal gets all wound up at the sound of the motorcycle in the beginning. Odd dogs, they are.

4) Long Time Lovin You by McGuffey Lane. These guys are definitely in it for the long haul, I remember listening to them back in the 80’s while driving to Big Walnut High School. (Also native Ohioans!)

5) All Of Me by Louis Armstrong.

6) Stronger by Kelly Clarkson.

BONUS: Because I had so much fun doing this and because it’s Valentines and we love our guests……

~ Would You Go With Me by Josh Turner

AND

~Don’t Leave M This Way by Thelma Houston

We’d love to have you enjoy Valentines Day with us!!
