NEW SONGS ABOUT LOVE – THE TONY HILLIER’S WORLD OF MUSIC VALENTINES DAY SPECIAL

14 Feb

bch

Love. It is, according to Shakespeare, an ever-fixed mark that looks on tempests and is never shaken. It’s like quicksilver in the hand, or maybe it’s like a heatwave, oxygen, water on a long hot afternoon. Writers, poets, song-writers have been on a centuries-long quest to define it, explain it, compare it, to touch the very heart of the mysterious force that is romantic love. Feats of great eloquence, syrupy sludge, primal howls of wanting. It’s all there in the great body of music that is love songs. And who’s to say that it gets any more to the heart of the matter than the great Tom Waits – ” it was a hubba, hubba, ding dang, baby you are just everythang”

TONY HILLIER CASTMusician, music writer and renowned romantic Tony Hillier brings you three very worthy new additions to the canon of love songs this week on Tony Hillier’s World of Music. LISTEN here
