I hate to blog and run but that’s what I’m doing in this blog post. Well, I have to keep it short and sweet – that way, by the time you listen to some of these super sappy love songs I hand-picked it won’t get awkward between us.
You know, it can get weird if you start listening and I’m still ramblin’ on about how my heart was broken every 5 minutes throughout my early teen and high school years.
That’s not a good look for me.
And you don’t want to see me crying either about it.
So, with that said, let’s get mushy shall we?
It’s “Time” for Hopeless Romantic Love Songs to Make Their Comeback
Valentine’s day is coming up and in the spirit of Valentine’s day, I wanted to find some songs that had the word “time” or a time based reference as a theme or a memorable part of the song lyrics. (This will make sense when you listen to the playlist) Since my life these days is pretty much consumed with the preaching of the “24 Hour Blueprint’s Escape the Matrix” gospel of making the most of life by creating more meaning in daily moments, I felt it’d be perfect to create a short but growing list of hopeless romantic songs. These are the songs I once got snot-nosed and misty-eyed over during my teen years that you can totally relate to.
But…but….buuuut – here’s what makes these songs special enough to put this list together. They all have a theme that relates to one thing – TIME!! That’s right, they all have a reference to time in someway as it relates to love.
So, let me caution you and say that I was a teen in the 90’s and I used to listen to 106.7 Lite FM when I lived in New York. And man! Those songs – Whew! They had just the right blend of relatable heartbreak medicine in their lyrics. And that station became my comforter in times of hopeless romantic turmoil. Anyway, I’m starting to break my word on keeping this short. So, I’ll shut up, but you should feel free to add to the playlist by commenting your most memorable hopeless romantic songs and I’ll add them to the playlist. Fair – right? Good.
With that I present to you the…
