Love Lockdown: The Metal Lungies Edition


When Scholar invited me to choose my five favorite love joints for Valentine’s Day, I figured, rather than just put together a random grab-bag of mushiness, I would create a musical path through the formation of the perfect relationship – the five types of love that that special someone invokes in you. What do I know about “love” and the “perfect relationship”? Not too much from experience, other than that the only thing more difficult to find than the former is the latter. In fact, my lack of experience was probably what inspired my song choices. Some may call me (and a few people have called me) “naïve”, but, to them I ask… is there any holiday that encourages naivete more so than Valentine’s Day?

(Well, there is April Fool’s Day… OK, Christmas, too – it certainly requires some degree of naivete to imagine an old fat guy dressed in red sliding down your chimney with reindeer posted up on the roof… OK, you can argue for Columbus Day, seeing as it also requires some naivete to swallow the pill that Christopher Columbus discovered America, though that’s a debate for another day… and, yes, technically Valentine’s Day isn’t a “holiday”, but rather a creation by greeting card companies to make money… for heaven’s sake, man, it was a freaking rhetorical question! No wonder you’re alone on Valentine’s Day!)

Zapp – “I Wanna Be Your Man” (YSI)
Zapp - "I Wanna Be Your Man" (Limelinx)

This is that secret admirer, “I had my eyes on you for a while and just now worked up the nerve to approach you” type of love music.


D'Angelo – "Cruisin' (Dallas Austin Remix)” (YSI)
D'Angelo - "Cruisin' (Dallas Austin Remix)" (Limelinx)

This is that hanging out and doing nothing but looking each other in the eyes type of love music (… remixed by Dallas Austin).

Mos Def – "The Panties" (YSI)
Mos Def - "The Panties" (Limelinx)

This is that lit candles, bubble bath, gripping the bedsheets type of love music.

The Intruders – "Together” (YSI)
The Intruders - "Together" (Limelinx)

This is that saving up a couple of paychecks for a ring because this one right here might be a keeper (and a cubic zirconia just ain’t gonna cut it) type of love music.

The Isley Brothers – "Voyage To Atlantis" (YSI)
The Isley Brothers - "Voyage To Atlantis" (Limelinx)

This is that together forever, complete ignorance of the fact that 50% of marriages end in divorce, essentially ruining your life but still couldn’t be happier type of love music.

As for those of you who aren’t big fans of Valentine’s Day – which includes myself, now that I’ve stepped out of the fantasy world I was in while writing this post – head over to ML for five songs that may be more up your alley.

Word From Your Moms:

"If somebody says, 'I love you,' to me, I feel as though I had a pistol pointed at my head. What can anybody reply under such conditions but that which the pistol-holder requires? 'I love you, too.' ---Kurt Vonnegut, Jr.
