Love is in the air! Harpists, it’s that time of year as we all gear up for our Valentine’s Day, week, and month gigs. Here’s some new rep to spice up your playlist of love! Don’t have any upcoming Valentine’s performances? Use this playlist for weddings and beautiful background music.
Make You Feel My Love
This famous pop song written by Bob Dylan (later recorded by both Adele and Garth Brooks) is the epitome of love. A popular song choice for first dances, this song will remind the couples in your audience of the romance they felt on their wedding day. Lyrics like “there’s nothing I wouldn’t do to make you feel my love” say it all!
Paris Once Again
Nine compositions inspired by one of the most romantic cities in the world—oh là là! This book is filled with beautiful melodies and harmonies perfect for a love playlist.
Nothing says love like an opera selection. From the 1883 opera Lakme, this piece is widely recognized due to its use in commercials for companies such as Ghirardelli Chocolate and British Airways, and in TV shows such as Parks and Recreation and The Simpsons. A great love song transcends centuries!
I’ve had this piece in my gigbook for years and often start my set with it because it’s so beautiful, sounds amazing on the harp, and is substantial in both length and melody!
This collection is filled with thoughtful melodies and dances that make for the perfect love-themed background music.
Upon the Willows
When I think of love-themed music, I imagine beautiful melodies and this piece fits the bill! I love the striking melody against the moving eighth notes in the bass clef.
The Restaurant Book—Romantic Selections
The title of the book says it all. You know this book is full of romantic selections perfect to float over diners, wedding audiences, and the like. A few of my favorites from this book are Strauss’ “Emperor Waltz Op.437,” Di Capua’s “O Sole Mio,” and Mozart’s “March of the Priests.” Although you may not realize it at first, you will recognize many of the melodies in this book!
What The World Needs Now is Love
Burt Bacharach instantly changes any mood setting straight to LOVE. This pop waltz is slow, soothing, and jazzy, allowing you and the listeners to get lost in it!
