The first love-themed song that came on my shuffle this morning on my way to work was Nina Simone's "Black is the Color of My True Love's Hair" (the funky Verve-remixed version). So when I got home tonight, I let myself unwind with a pen, a sketchbook and one of my favorite things to draw: hair!
Such a Little Thing Makes Such a Big Difference (Morrissey)
While maybe not strictly a love song, after hitting random 20 some times, this seemed like the closest I was going to get to a love song, or at least something love related.
It's not the size of the meat, it's the motion of the ocean, they say.
The song that came up for me was Fools Rush In by Elvis Presley. When I heard the line "When we met, I felt my life begin" the first thing that popped into my head was a seed sprouting. So I went with that :)
My current playlist is “Slow Sexy Art Mix,” and I’d probably be listening to it even if it wasn’t the Month of Love, because I like it. The first track that played when randomized was “Casualty” by Snake River Conspiracy, which lyrically may be more of a melodramatic revenge track, but the groove is definitely love-ly:
The image I chose to go with is kinda creepy as hell, but the idea was that relationships are sometimes built on the bones of the last ones: the casualties.
