Mix: Love

Once a crush builds and feelings are reciprocated, the emotion grows deeper into an infatuation and then (sometimes) to love. Many spend their whole lives searching, while others seem to always be in a state of love. Whatever the case, it’s an instinctive human emotion that is often expressed through music.

Listen to The Spec ladies’ favorite love songs and picks from our new interns below…

ALEXIS’ PICKS:

Artist: Mirah | Song: Sweepstakes Prize
You know all of my secret ideas / The ones I’m giving up on and the ones I’ll keep / And everybody sees a funny look in our eyes / ‘Cause we know that we already won the sweepstakes prize

Artist: Lykke Li feat. Drake | Song: Little Bit
I think I’m a little bit / Little bit / A little bit in love with you / But only if you’re a little bit / Little bit / In lalalala love with me

Artist: Billy Joel | Song: She’s Got A Way
She’s got a smile that heals me / I don’t know why it is / But I have to laugh when she reveals me / She’s got a way about her / I don’t know what it is / But I know that I can’t live without her

Artist: The XX | Song: Islands
I am yours now / So now I don’t ever have to leave / I’ve been found out / So now I’ll never explore

Artist: John Legend | Song: Ordinary People
Maybe we’ll live and learn / Maybe we’ll crash and burn / Maybe you’ll stay, maybe you’ll leave,maybe you’ll return / Maybe another fight / Maybe we won’t survive / But maybe we’ll grow / We never know baby you and I


DEE’S PICKS:

Artist: Wilco feat. Feist | Song: You and I
You need to know everything about a person to love them. 

Artist: Bill Withers | Song: Lean on Me
True for all types of love.

Artist: John Lennon | Song: Woman
Simple and sweet.

Artist: The Flamingos | Song: I Only Have Eyes for You
“My love must be a kind of blind love / I can’t see anyone but you.”

Artist: Regina Spektor | Song: I Want to Sing
I sing this song all the time. So pretty.


MATT’S PICKS

Artist: Foxy Shazam | Song: I Like It
“That’s the biggest black that I’ve ever seen / And I like it…I like it.”  Truer words have never been spoken.

Artist: Hit the Lights | Song: How Will I Know (Whitney Houston Cover)
“How will I know, if he really loves me? I say a prayer with every heartbeat.” Hit The Lights decided to NOT change the *HE* to *SHE*. I now know this entire song. I’ve sang it at karaoke.

Artist: Ben Kweller | Song: Thirteen
“We stood by the ocean. Turned our hearts into one. We laid in bed all day…”. I learned the chords for this song for an ex-girlfriend’s birthday. She loved Ben Kweller. I didn’t have a piano or a keyboard, but I did have a Mac and Garage Band.

Artist: Flight of the Conchords | Song: The Most Beautiful Girl (in the Room)
“Looking around the room, I can tell that you are the most beautiful girl…in the room.”

Artist: Fun | Song: The Gambler
“I swear when I grow up, I won’t just buy you a rose. I will buy the flower shop, and you will never be lonely.”  I sneak this song in on first dates. It’s a win-win for the both of us.


NIKKI’S PICKS

Artist: Band of Horses | Song: No One’s Gonna Love You
Anything to make you smile / You are the ever living ghost of what once was / I never want to hear you say that you’d be off or you liked it that way / No one is ever gonna love you more than I do

Artist: Spill Canvas | Song: The Lullaby
While you were sleeping / I figured out everything / I was constructed for you and you were molded for me / Now I feel your name / coursin’ through my veins / You shine so bright / it’s insane / You put the sun to shame

Artist: Bon Iver | Song: Blood Bank
I’m in love with your honor / I’m in love with your cheeks

Artist: The Smiths | Song: There is a Light That Never Goes Out
And if a double decker bus crashes into us / to die by your side is such a heavenly way to die / And if a ten ton truck killed the both of us / to die by your side / well.. the pleasure, the privilege is mine

Artist: Mae | Song: Ready and Waiting to Fall
It’s never been more perfect being alive / I’ve never been so satisfied
