In honor of the week, this interlude’s theme is love. But first, I’m tapering off. Here’s the video for “Hands Clean” because you-know-who is in it.
With that out of the way, here’s my favorite love song from an artist I’ve been listening to a lot lately, Webb Wilder.
If you prefer a song with the concentrated power of ten ordinary love songs, here it is.
Okay, fine, this next one is less “a love song” and more “a sad thing about love I sing along with loudly in my car.”
And the antidote for too much “Since I Fell For You”:
Lastly, for you love cynics, I give you Barry Manilow’s version of “Read ‘Em And Weep,” which is pretty much the “Ride of the Valkyries” of breakup songs—even if the video gestures at a different opera.
Enjoy the season!
