October 14: Love Songs—Not So Silly After All
Paul McCartney sang: “Some people want to fill the world with silly love songs … what’s wrong with that.” Nothing at all, according to Plano-based music historian Ted Gioia. His research finds that humans have been singing love songs since the dawn of history, with sometimes subversive and surprising results for societies.
