Valentine's Day Love Song #10: LL Cool J's "I Need Love"
I took a little break from blogging, but I'm back just in time for Valentine's Day! Remember the good ol' days of exchanging Valentine's Day cards in grade school? We were forced to give a card to everyone in class, so I would always try to give the "We're Just Friends" themed cards to the boys I didn't like (ie. everyone except the Redheads! Yes, I had a thing for Gingers back then...weird I know!) Anyhow, I digress. So, along the them of Valentine's Day I thought I would post a different LOVE themed song for each day until V-Day!
Well, as it turns out, there are a billion LOVE themed songs out there (and I'm not even including the Bhangra or Bollywood songs!) In fact, LOVE is without a doubt the most commonly used song theme of all time! So after doing my search I had to narrow it down to just 10 songs! It was tough, but I did it!
Since today is technically "Flashback Friday," I figured that I should put up one of my favorite old-school "love" themed songs: LL Cool J's "I Need Love."
PS- I love that Def Jam's Rick Rubin had a fit when LL insisted on putting "I Need Love" on his second album! I guess LL is proof that even tough guys need love too. And that reminds me of a song off of one my favorite soundtracks, Above The Rim: "Hoochies Need Love Too" by Paradise!
PS- This one doesn't count! :P
