The Language of Love

Been inundated with Valentines messages, Anniversary greetings (to the many friends who chose to get married on Valentine's Day) and a whole lot of messages about God's love on Facebook and WhatsApp since morning. Among the popular posts is the Facebook Profile Picture Frame Overlay (what a long name for something so simple) from Dolly Parton's Imagination Library.


  
Who is Valentine?
The other Valentine that we know of is Rudolph Valentino - the 'Latin lover' of the silent movies in the 1920s. The first time I heard this name though was as part of the song Viva Y Espana by Sylvia.



Did I mention that Rudolph Valentino was Italian... and love in Italian is That's Amore (Dean Martin).


Amor Amor Amor is the word for 'love' in Spanish... and that song by Dean Martin was a bigger hit for Julio Iglesias.


In the City of Love, the 'song of love' is Chanson d'Amour (Manhattan Transfer).



Back to the universal language, here's my cover of Nat King Cole's L-O-V-E.


And all this talk about love reminded me of a beautiful song that my dad used to sing - The Glory of Love sung by The Platters.




HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY
