Love is in the air!!!

There is a lot to take in these days that  can send us into bouts of depression,fear or anger. So a chance to escape into the dreaminess of new love or loving the one you’re with is a great place to escape. So be my Valentine and join me in celebrating love by adding your favourite song that you’d like to add to this list and get that love thang going around. I’ve chosen three songs to kickstart the list. First on my list is this sexy man who can be my Valentine anytime y’all . If you  want to get the mood right, listen up to Will Downing.

Then there is this old song which still tugs at my heart and brings back good old lovin’ memories. Listen to those high notes:

And if your spirits want to just run free….

So post your favourite Valentine’s song in the comments section. Feel free to share whatever genre inspires you with love or maybe that you would like to dedicate to your loved one 💘💘💘💥💥🎉🎉💖💖

  1. I’m listening to these tunes you’ve dropped, Chevvy, and I’m letting them inspire me. So I’ll be in and out on this post, and will put my favorites in as they come to me. There are so many I could list…perhaps I’ll try to limit myself. Well, as best as I can anyway….

    1. I’m so thrilled that you’re playing along. See it as a “go to list” for others looking for inspiration. Some can be songs that are memorable to you and others the kind that you would want to play for a new relationship.I had a friend who follows occasionally tell me how much she enjoyed the music and she goes out and buys some of the music. I reckon we should get commission for this hahaha!

          1. I should have added, that’s Rachelle singing on the chorus too. She’s actually going to be nearby next month. I may get tickets, but there are some other shows on the horizon that I’m trying to save my money for.

            1. Firstly, I must say that was a whole lot of fun. I felt like I had been to a party. I’ve always had this fantasy about putting Phyllis and Miles in the same room. I think they did once sing together. But that song – that song – I shall not say anything further. You will have to read my silent lips . hahaha!

        1. You’re welcome, dear. It’s one of those “featured” performances—where she sings for someone else. If I’m not mistaken, that’s the only track (there’s a remix version called Slow and Saxy) that she sings on that particular album.

          1. Well it was great to hear another one from her. I have such a collection of her music that I’m sure, there are some tracks I might have missed.
            Don’t know if you listened to that “Saxy” version of Darryl Motameddy’s Europa. Oh I keep playing that video – just love his performance.

    1. RIP Gerald. I’m gonna post some companion pieces now. I should stop…some of these songs I might want to save for #RomanticTuesday…or then again, what the heck! This is our Quiet Storm we’re programming here!

      So here’s my Gerald piece, probably not his best, but I love it:

                    1. Yes I did. I was in Cancun when that song came out so I associate it with those beautiful calm light blue beaches, white sandy shores and I had a jacuzzi bath in the middle of my room – So don’t talk about that song. Just be silent! hahaha.

    If you need a Quiet Storm soundtrack for your Valentine’s Day, or even if you just want some idea of what a Quiet Storm radio show would sound like, you need…let me repeat…you NEED to get over to Chevvy’s Studio and read this post, but especially the comments. Best part, you can join in with your romantic favorites. Don’t let Chevvy, Lady G and I have all the fun!

    1. Thanks Tracy. I’ve always said I wanted to be a DJ in my spare time, so come on in – let’s turn those turntables and kick up our own storm. Who knows, with some of these songs y’all might have a “lucky” Valentine’s day!

  3. Hi Chevvy!
    Whenever I think of romantic songs my heart sends me to the past.
    Johnny Hartman has always been a jazz favorite of mine & you can’t beat his soulful rendition of “I See Your Face Before Me.” This song will never fail to bring a tear to my eye. Anyone who has ever been in love can understand when they close their eyes, they can feel their beloved even if he or she isn’t with them.
    Another of my favorites is the great Lady Day with “Solitude.” The yearning in her voice is enough to turn any rationalist into a romantic even if it is just for a minute.
    Wonderful post!

    1. Hello Susan, Thank you for coming to the party. These are beautiful songs.
      One of my favourite places is an antique store, not far from where I live. They have created a quaint restaurant in the midst of all the antiques. You sit there surrounded by all these beautiful things including gramaphones and jukeboxes and this is where you’ll hear these gems playing. You’ve reminded me that I haven’t played my Jazz ladies for a while. They always bring such a touch of nostalgia as I can feel from your words. I’m posting your favs for everyone to enjoy!

  4. To my co-hosts, Time zone requires me to say goodnight. I’m leaving a few more of my favourite love songs for you guys and I’ll catch you on the other side. You are welcome to go toe to toe on any of these with me.

    Of course, my list would incomplete without this lady right here!

    1. Oh that is too bad and I included him on the George Benson song.

      Oh what a legend he was and I’m so glad I got to see him once when he performed in SA. Sad though the news is, I’m pleased that we’ve been celebrating him throughout his career. Many current musicians may never see such longevity in their careers. Thanks for letting me know.
      I have to tell you that I feel like I’ve been away the whole weekend with this music extravaganza. I got to get rewired for work now lol! Hope to see Lady G before I sleep but if not, give her my regards while the two of you yak while I’m asleep. I’ve had such fun! Thanks so much to you and Gwin for the awesome collaboration🌹

      1. My pleasure, Chevvy! It truly has been glorious with all this music we’ve shared among ourselves. I’m sure that Gwin would say much the same.

        Yes, he did have longevity in his career; he even had a full year’s schedule of touring dates. He will be missed by so many.

        1. It just sounded “so good” together. I’m saying goodnight. Have a lovely week ahead and see you on the other side.

          And Lady G – when you arrive here – where you been Chile – I/we been missin’ you! 😀

    Ok this one is for the lovers! (**Said in my best DJ voice).
    If you are a fan of Soul and R&B, then you MUST check out Chevvy’s post!
    What started as a friendly invitation turned into an all out battle royale with bloggers going head to head with their favorite soul jams.
    It kinda reminded me of Lady G’s “My Jams” series! LOL!
    Anyway, the following bloggers, outside of me and Chevvy, were the most vocal:
    T.Wayne: A Joyful Process Blog: https://joyfulprocess.blog/2017/02/10/funky-friday-superstition/
    Susan Leighton: Woman on the Ledge

    Hey wait a minute…Lisa A? Where were you girl?
