Happily ever after….that’s the ending to the greatest love stories of all-time. Not every relationship is the perfect Hollywood romance where boy meets girl, they get the fairy tale wedding, and raise beautiful children in their dream home. Real life relationships are full of ups and down. Sometimes it may be a case of bad timing, misunderstandings that escalate, two people being at emotionally different places in their lives, long distance relationships, or just our own insecurities getting in the way of our happiness. It is truly a miracle to find a couple who will go the distance and truly live ‘happily ever after’. But if you can make it past the opening stages, the dream is still alive. Yes, the best is yet to come! Here’s a series of Valentine’s Day songs that share that optimistic (yet realistic!) hope for the future:
“THE BEST WAS YET TO COME” Bryan Adams
Originally written by Bryan for the film, “Star 80”, the song was dedicated to the life of adult actress, Dorothy Stratten. This is one of the true lost treasures from Bryan Adams that could have been a big hit but I like it better that it’s a special album cut for his fans. Laura Branigan did a cover version worth a listen.
“THE BEST IS YET TO COME” The Scorpions
The big power ballad from the German heavy metal rockers 17th album, “Sting In The Tail”. “And how can I live without you, You’re such a part of me. And you’ve always been the one, Keeping me forever young..And the best is yet to come.”
“BEST IS YET TO COME” Red
Christian rockers, Red, have been multiple winners at the Dove Awards. One of the most beautiful love songs in their catalog, “Best Is Yet To Come” promises life has just begun.
