Modern Amour Playlist

Narrator: Tabitha of The Pairabirds

With Valentines fast approaching, I thought it would be appropriate to give you a few love playlists. I entitled this series of playlist Modtroment. Mod/ meaning modern. /Tro meaning retro. -Ment meaning Basement. Mod-tro-ment.

Naturally, this series of playlists contain modern melodies with a retro feel. And, songs from the past, found in the basement, that need to resurface. The first Modtroment love playlist is Modern Amour. I don't think any of these songs were ever played on mainstream radio, so I hope they are new to you. And, if they are not new to you, I hope you say, "Oh yes, I love that song." These songs, I feel, you should get to know, or be reminded of their existence.

Now, I cannot speak for the original artists and say their songs are all about love. I think these songs evoke the feeling of love (love being such an indescribable word). But, the wonderful thing about art is that allows for individual interpretation.

I know there are plenty of songs that I am forgetting (I wanted to keep the playlist limited to 10, a nice even number). If you have a song that you think works well with this playlist, please leave a comment. I am always trying to expand by music library. My first Generation Creative Mp3 player has plenty of room left.
