Love Is In The Air



It's here! The month of Love. Can you feel it?


Much like my Jingle All The Way series that I did in December, I've decided to present to you Love Songs from the 1970's for the entire month of February.  Yes, Valentines Day is a commercial holiday, but we will be celebrating love all month long here at Jingle Jangle Jungle. (Chocolates and Roses not necessary)

You are more than welcome to join in the fun, all you need to do is include a link to your post in the comments so that everyone can visit. The more the merrier :)

Alright! Let’s get this party started! Fill up those waterbeds, break out the black lights and disco balls and let’s have some fun!

The first song for this month is an obvious one -


Love Is In The Air  by John Paul Young


I was going to use this song for my battle of the bands song today, but given my latest events, I decided to go with something else. Be sure to stop by the Battle of the Bands post to cast your vote - I’d truly appreciate it!

Wikipedia tells us about this song:
"Love Is in the Air" is a 1977 disco song sung by John Paul Young. The song was written by George Young and Harry Vanda and it became a worldwide hit in 1978, peaking at No. 3 on the Australian charts and No. 5 in the UK Singles Chart. In the United States, the song peaked at No. 7 on the pop chart and spent two weeks at No. 1 on the adult contemporary chart, his only US top 40 hit. The song plays at 122 beats per minute, a typical 1970s disco rhythm.
John Paul Young said of the recording, "We actually did 'Love Is in the Air' because we needed something for the German market. 'Standing in the Rain' became a hit in the clubs over there and then on the charts, so we needed a follow-up. I'd been to Germany and heard the music. It was electronic mania, all clicks and electronic buzzes. So George and Harry gave it the treatment."



Won’t you join me in this fun month-long theme? Again, all you need to do is post your link in the comments.

    1. Thank you, Robin! I'm doing as well as I can. Had a few rocky patches, but for the most part, I feel as though I am getting away with something.
