Rock-o-Matic: Love

Today is Valentine's Day. Therefore, the theme for this week's selection of sample music was easy. Each song deals with love. The first song comes from the musical Popeye, starring Robin Williams and Shelley Duvall. What a movie. Why this song? After last week's discussion of The Shining, I thought of Shelley. The song is simple and sweet. The other two songs, meh, why not. Otis Redding kicks ass with this live version of "I've Been Loving You Too Long". Pizzicato Five is one of my all time favorite Japanese groups, and "Baby Love Child" is a nice counterbalance to the intensity of Otis. Very lovely. Good stuff.
