happy valentine's day 2k10!

A new year, a new chance to be miserable on Valentine's Day. Kidding! Today is just another day but if you have a sweetie pie make sure you load tons of mediocre chocolate and giant balloons on him/her. FOR ME. I would settle for eating those pancakes.

I hope everyone has a great day and I'm going to leave you to your fancy dinner eating and cuddle time with this great song performed by the always lovely Dusty Springfield. Dusty was a little ol' British girl who wanted to sing soul! She knew she had the voice for it, so she made an album in America to show her cred. It paid off, because guess what? That's the album featuring "Son of a Preacher Man." Everyone knows the words to that one! Also, she has great hair.

Dusty was essential in the "white soul" movement, as they say. She was often the only white person on all black soul bills in the sixties. Her voice is distinctive and absolutely soulful and I really like listening to some of Dusty's stuff. Enjoy some Dusty today, on this day of love, and just remember that your love has lifted me higher, blog friends. Love u. xx
