A Valentines Day Anthem

This valentines day anthem is very near and dear to my heart. My favorite evenings at the Mile High Soul Club in Denver usually end with this song at around 1:30am. It’s the perfect tune to round out the evening, and hopefully score a slow dance with a cute boy!!

This song was written in 1959 by the legendary and brilliant Sam Cooke. Rumor has it that he wrote this song about his high school sweetheart!

I love this song because it’s completely self deprecating and unabashedly brave:

Don’t know much about history
Don’t know much biology
Don’t know much about a science book
Don’t know much about the french I took

But I do know that I love you
And I know that if you love me too
What a wonderful world this would be

So maybe you don’t have all your facts and figures straight, but if you’re certain that you love me–that’s all that really matters. It all feels very Lloyd Dobbler-esque—and that my friends is worth swooning over.
