For the Love of…Music and Water! - February 2020

The month of February brings thoughts of Valentine’s Day, and love…and also of cold weather, rain, clouds, and the ideal day staying home where it’s warm and dry and cozy. In honor of wet weather that we certainly love (and need!), this month I thought we’d offer a fun list of some songs about water, and love. Some are classics from a variety of musical genres, but I also include a list of educational songs for children to help them understand the importance of this most-precious natural resource.
