… And since that makes today Valentine’s Day, it only seems fitting that I include a song that reflects the romantic aspect of day. The saxophone is after all, arguably the world’s most romantic instrument—or at least the instrument that has come to signify romance/sex in popular culture.
Japan’s Kaori Kobayashi will be turning 30 later this year, but already has more musical notches under her belt than many musicians twice her age. In just under 2 weeks she will be releasing her 7th album. Precious is set for release on February 23, and will include a bonus track.
Bonus track 12 on Kobayashi’s new album, is Nothing’s Gonna Change My Love for You. This song was originally included on her 2009 album, Golden Best. Apparently the intense popularity of her versions of the tune on YouTube—more than 3.5 million views to date—prompted the inclusion of the song again on this album.
So even though I’ve mentioned this video once before, since Kobayashi will be re-releasing the tune this month, I thought I would use it for this year’s Valentine’s Day post. Nothing’s Gonna’ Change My Love for You, is after all, nothing if not a classic love song.
So consider this post a heads-up. If you haven’t yet planned something romantic, or ordered flowers, or picked up a small something for your Valentine, what are you waiting for? Time’s a wasting.
Oh, and guys, a small—or large—household appliance is not a romantic gift. Nor is it generally appreciated for birthdays or Christmas either. I’m just saying… Trust me on this.
