Love Playlist for Lyrical / Contemporary Class

Until Valentine's Day, I'll be doing a different "Love" themed playlist every Monday.  This week's playlist is geared towards lyrical or contemporary dancers.  After I made the playlist, I realized it tended to go to the darker side of love - the heartache or wanting.  All the better to 'emote' with, I guess!  As my students would say, "this song needs an angsty lyrical face."

[Links open up in iTunes]

Love Remains The Same - Gavin Rossdale - an uplifting song
My Love - Sia - hauntingly beautiful
She Is Love - Parachute - simple and soft acoustic guitar
A Little More of You - Ashley Chambliss - mellow
Like You Do - Angel Taylor - very "pop" and bubbly
I Will Show You Love - Kendall Payne - updated love ballad
Be Be Your Love - Rachael Yamagata - 3/4 rhythm, bluesy
The Book of Love - Peter Gabriel - beautiful song for all ages
Thinking About You - The Big Scary - slow and steadily tugging on your heartstrings
Fools In Love - Inara George - another 3/4 time!  Lamenting about fools in love
Jar of Hearts - Christina Perri - no need for description, there's a reason it's overplayed...
Piece of My Heart - Keri Noble - song about leaving a piece of yourself behind - I used this as a duet for sisters when one of them was a high school senior
