Nat King Cole - L-O-V-E w/ lyrics ...Songs of Yesteryear




  
Thanks For The Memories:
Songs of Yesteryear
L.O.V.E.
by Nat King Cole


L.O.V.E. was written by Bert Kaempfest and Milt Gabler for Nat King Cole, for the last album he ever made.  He titled his last album "LOVE" and he wanted a song that said just that.  It was released shortly before his death in February of 1965. 

And I'm not surprised there's a song with the actual 'name' of the subject we're talking about in these love song blogs each morning...how bout you?  Because 'back in the day'...people knew what a real priority was....and at the top of most everybody's priority list was 'forever after, undying love and devotion' to their own special someone.   Aaaaaaahhh that sounds absolutely wonderful....doesn't it?

Their songs all said it and you could understand each and every word and savor IN those words.  And their actions even said it.  Because it was a time of togetherness and love, unlike any other that's ever been known. 

For several years...Kim was a wedding and events planner and I'm telling you the truth...if ever a person was cut out for a job...Kim WAS cut out to be a wedding and events planner. 
For the weddings, she'd type up scripts and everybody got one the night of wedding rehearsal and she'd be so loving and funny...but she'd give them about a 3 minute pep talk before rehearsal and tell everybody they could be there 30 minutes or they could be there 5 hours...it just depended on how serious they were about following their scripts...because she wasn't in the habit of producing anything less than a perfect wedding...and perfect they all were.

Kim was so SO blessed to be hired by doctors and lawyers and huge business people and produce some of the biggest and most beautiful weddings there has ever been...in this area.  And it wasn't that unusual for her to have 2 weddings in one weekend...and on those occasions and especially if there was a 3rd event on one weekend...she'd always call me in to be an extra helping hand. 
I absolutely LOVED doing weddings and events with Kim...and I've begged her to get back into them...but goodness...you talk about multi-tasking....GOODNESS!!! 

But in so many of these weddings....they used these old OLD songs and I can remember one particular wedding when I first started helping her...where they used this song that we're highlighting today and they also did "Fly Me To The Moon" and "Unforgettable" which we'll highlight soon...and a few others and I ran her down in her freenzie of keeping it all going so smoothly and I said "These songs are making me so weak I don't know if I can go ON"  :-)  Because they were ALL ... these super great old love songs...She said "I'll make you a CD of them mom, so you can get used to them... because lots of people use these songs for weddings and you're going to have to be able to hold up under the mush" ...and she did.  :-)

Beautiful song...ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL!!!    AND DID YOU NOTICE...we have gone all the way through a love song blog and I didn't mention that old geezer of mine ONE TIME?  :-)  


Thanks For The Memories:  Songs Of yesteryear
 will be posted before the blog some, many or most mornings.
I can't get more honest than that.

But here's the kicker...no matter what I talk about in my blog each morning...By posting a daily love song from yesteryear and talking a little about it...there will always be a little love coming daily from me...to you.

                                     The very best love stories just have no ending
                       and I'm just so very blessed to be living one of those love stories.

                             BE THE CHANGE and LIVE AND LOVE WITH PASSION



L is for the way you look at me
O is for the only one I see
V is very, very extraordinary
E is even more than anyone that you adore and

Love is all that I can give to you
Love is more than just a game for two
Two in love can make it
Take my heart and please don't break it
Love was made for me and you
