Great Moments In Music: Valentine’s Day Edition

After everyone comes off of their chocolate high, and puts their clothes back on, Valentine’s Day is gone before anyone had a chance to order their second “fixed course meal” at the Olive Garden.  Having celebrated Valentine’s Day in the past, I couldn’t help but give the holiday the same attention I give to the Kardashian’s, which as I am sure you have guessed is none at all.  I adore any day where you make your loved one feel like a million bucks, don’t get me wrong.  But to devote an entire day to waiting in lines, in clothes you would never wear, to have a meal you really can’t afford?  Not quite my style.

Music always manages to capture complex emotions better than words. So with that, I bring you a collection of music to get you through a day that some may deem more taxing than April 15th.  From bygone eras of girl groups and big hair, we bring you a special edition of Great Moments In Music:

“You Don’t Own Me”- Dusty Springfield

For anyone who has felt “on display.” This song always makes me think of the First Wives Club as well.  And I have no shame in that.

“Where Did Our Love Go?”- The Supremes

Diana Ross had her fair share of heartbreak. But I doubt it compared to the heartbreak of living in Diana’s spotlight.

“Break It To Me Gently”- Brenda Lee

I’ve always found this song to be completely gut-wrenching, but no one makes it look so beautiful as Brenda Lee.

“It’s My Party”- Lesley Gore

Another girl shows up and takes her man away AT HER OWN PARTY. Enough said.

“These Boots Were Made For Walking” – Nancy Sinatra

The quintessential song for independent women and fabulous footwear.
