Music Mama: Great Love Songs

By Jackie Helton, the Music Mama

The most lovey-dovey day of the year is fast approaching, so I thought I’d compile a new list of love songs to get us ready. Go to your favorite online music store to download some of the suggestions below to make yourself a “Love Songs Playlist” for February.  Also, if you love finding out about new little tricks on your iPod, here’s one for you.

How to see full-color album art on your iPod:

The album art downloads from i-Tunes automatically when you purchase a song, but if you burn a song from your  CD collection, the artwork won’t be there. After connecting your iPod to your computer, under the “Advanced” tab, you’ll see “Get Album Artwork”.  Click that, and the album artwork for your CD will show up as a small thumbnail version to the left of the song title. To see a full screen, double click the center “Select” button on your iPod, and the screen shows the album art for the song playing.

Enjoy this month’s recommendations for “Great Love Songs” which stand the test of time.
