WHO DOESN’T LOVE A GOOD “THEME RIDE?”

I love holidays.  All of them.  It allows me to bury myself in my music library and find the perfect array of music for my classes.  Valentines Day, St Patty’s Day, Halloween, 4th of July  it doesn’t matter there’s a tune for every occasion.  I can’t tell you how psyched I was to find out that I taught Valentine’s Day!  I started building the list, planning the decorations and  baking the cookies.   For my lists I always ask the class for any requests , I always get a few gems.  I find  that if you include your class everyone walks away happy.  Just to backtrack a bit , last year I did the Anti-Valentines day ride, which was quite fun but sad.  So this year I went back to positive love songs, to some degree.  Of course it was a hilly ride, because in the end you got to eat homemade cookies.  Also, I reworked my Anti-Valetines day list added a few requests.  So here they are, enjoy this music, and as always thanks for your response and keep the requests coming.
