Acoustic Sunrise Sunday February 11, 2018

There is no shortage of love songs in the Acoustic Sunrise library; heck, in music in general. It’s like an obsessive topic. So in advance of Valentine’s Day we’ll explore some different takes on romance, affection, and frustration, from “It’s Different for Girls” by Joe Jackson, to Adele covering Bob Dylan’s “Make You Feel My Love”; from “Lovers in a Dangerous Time” by Bruce Cockburn to an unplugged version of 10cc’s “I’m Not in Love,” “Loves’ A Mystery” by the Pretenders from the KFOG Archives, “In the Shape of a Heart” by Jackson Browne, and “Anniversary Song” by Cowboy Junkies… and that’s just a start. Nothing mushy, but nothing bitter either.

And a fond farewell to John Perry Barlow too, the author of some of the Grateful Dead’s most memorable tunes. You can still get in on Dead & Co tickets for the Shoreline shows in July, on us. I’ll let you know how that works, and how to see Ireland’s Glen Hansard, of Once fame, at the Fox on March 12.

Check out that and more coming up on the My Funny Valentine edition of Acoustic Sunrise.
