Love Is In The Air!!! (The Playlist) #RomanticTuesday

Because I tend to do things like this:

Earlier this month, my blog friends Chevvy and Lady G hosted different “Love Is In The Air!!!” posts. In those posts several bloggers posted songs to compile a massive romantic song mixtape. I’ve taken all of the contributions and put them in a playlist, which I’ve posted below.

Shout outs go to the following bloggers for their contributions:

Chevvy: www.chevvy8.com

Lady G: www.seekthebestblog.com

Susan Leighton:www.womanontheledgeblog.wordpress.com

Lisa A.: www.lifeofanelpasowoman.com

Thiscagedbird: www.thiscagedbird.wordpress.com

Darryl Walker Jr.: www.zoneofnonbeing.wordpress.com

Ellie P.: www.crossedeyesanddottedtees.wordpress.com

This could have gone well over two hundred songs if I included similar posts made by other bloggers in response to the two original posts. So I made a cutoff to only include songs posted in the comments of the first two posts linked above. What resulted is a great mixtape, filled mostly but not completely with soul/R&B ballads and songs of romance, but with a few surprises thrown in. I did tweak the order of the songs a bit, to make it start as if it were the Quiet Storm radio show of my memories (which is why Smokey Robinson’s “Quiet Storm” leads off), and to keep as best as possible songs by related artists together (done in most, but not all cases).

You’ll need plenty of time on your hands to get through the whole thing. To see the list of all the songs included, you can find them here, or you can click the playlist icon in the upper left hand corner of the video below.

During the course of the weekend after Chevvy’s lead post went live, Al Jarreau passed away. Several of his songs are featured in the playlist. He serves as a sort of anchor to the whole thing, and his greatness is truly missed.

Putting this together was as much fun for me as it was contributing to those posts in the first place. I hope you find something in it that you enjoy as well. As always, thanks for reading and listening.

    1. Think I didn’t when I….you know.

      I got them all in, or as many of them as I could. Let’s be honest, though I had a hand in picking some of these songs, everyone else certainly contributed. I can only imagine if this spread out even further what a mixtape would look like!

      1. That’s true, we all contributed pretty heavily, but, as I said, you took that extra step and made it into a ‘living..breathing’ thing of it’s own! AWESOME sauce!

  1. “You short circuit all my nerves”, “let your lightening light my fire” What better song and lyrics to introduce this spectacular Quiet Storm – and then, slap bang to Will – Uh -oh I need my smelling salts – Tracy you know that Smokey goes to my head!! What can I say? This looks like a labour of love. What a spectacular gift to all of us.

    2. You’re welcome, Chevvy. If it had not been for your original idea, and Lady G adding to it, this would not have been possible. The contributions from the other bloggers just made it that much better.

      By all meansβ€”please do squat here! Feel free to hang out, shoot the breeze, whatever. I am your gracious host!

      1. You are gracious indeed. I repeat that this is such a gift. I was working very late last night and plugged into the list and whew! – it is just so amazing. I think you are far too modest in acknowledging your own contribution and THIS loving care you took in putting it all together. THANK YOU SO much my friend!

      2. Compiling this was pretty easy…just had to go through the posts and comments.

        But I do thank you from the bottom of my heart for the kind words. Perhaps there will be another one someday (probably shorter though)!

    1. That’s what happens when several people share a whole lot of songs! It took quite a bit of time to round them all up too. Spread them out; I think it would take over eight hours to listen straight through from start to finish.
