You know, I blame the love songs of the 90’s for all the relationship problems I’ve ever had. I fully expected, as a child, that the men I dated and the man I married would continuously serenade me with songs about my eyes while we slow danced every night and that would be my life. I also grew to expect many more things from this era of music that I have since realized are either completely unrealistic or just really rare for men to do.
But, while my life has been completely devoid of any African American men singing me love-song-lullabies to sleep at night, or anyone saying anything about stars in my eyes, I still love these songs just as much as I did when I was 5. Despite the fact that they led to a false belief of what adult men are actually like, they’re still so sweet! And I think that daydreaming little kid in me comes out a little bit whenever I hear them.
So, as tribute to the over-the-top infatuation songs of my childhood, I present to you this All 4 One “I Swear” Valentine. Whether or not your partner looks you in the eye and promises to always be there “For better or worse! Till death due us part! I’ll love you with every beat of my heart! I swear!!” (I had to..couldn’t stop..), they probably still deserve this Valentine, especially if you lived through the 90’s and remember pining your heart out to this jam! And hey, its a printable (with glow in the dark stars or moon pies or whatever you want!) so you can just hand it to them, absolutely no need for prolonged eye-staring and awkward singing.
