Valentine’s Day only comes around once a year. To some, it’s a special day of love. To others, Valentine’s Day is nothing more than a commercial holiday and they find no special meaning to it. Sarantos feels like Valentine’s Day is a significant day of the year! There are many rumors about its origin but the one thing that Sarantos wants to emphasize is – should there be just one day of the year that we honor love?
Love is all around us. Every single day. There is the love of a child, a friend, a lover, a spouse and the list goes on and on. Love is different for us all. While Sarantos feels that Valentine’s Day is one of the most extraordinary days of the year, he also feels that it is not the only day that love should be celebrated. Take a moment each and every day to tell those in your life that you love them. Honor what they do for you. There is no shame in that. Life can get really complicated but love is simple. We make it more complicated than it needs to be.
“This is a cool soft rock song about Valentine’s Day,” says Sarantos. “This is a singer-songwriter song about a man who spends Valentine’s Day thinking about love and its special purpose in the world. Love is real. Real is love. Love is all around us on Valentine’s Day. Love does not care about our age and whether we have been in love just once or many times. Love will smack us across our faces if it so desires. What do you think about love? What do you think about Valentine’s Day?”
