What’s Your Favorite Love Song?
"When are you guys going to start playing Christmas music?" We start hearing that like clockwork around Halloween every year. That's over and done for another 10 months or so but another holiday is coming up this week. VALENTINE'S DAY!
It's the day of love, and would you believe me if I told you I was once I asked by a listener, partially tongue-in-cheek, I can only assume, "when are you going to start playing Valentine's Day music"? I thought it was funny and responded with an equally tongue-in-cheek answer: "that's pretty much all we do play!"
But seriously, there's always a lot of "love" in our playlist, but leave it to you, the KDAT listeners, to find even more songs off the beaten path to help you celebrate love, or even to grieve heartbreak. What is your favorite love song? We asked, you answered.
