Now, I’m not one to claim that there are absolutely no love songs being made anymore. There are quite a few. You just have to search for them. These particular songs, or well actually their music videos, stood out to me. The first song is by Jocelyne Béroard, lead singer of my all time favorite band Kassav. It features love between two middle aged people, and that’s something we don’t see featured in modern music quite often. Or at least, I don’t really see it. Beautiful imagery, beautiful song. I don’t understand the language, but from the visuals you kind of get the gist of what the song is about.

The second music video features love between two women, also quite uncommon. Yes, there are a lot of sexual images of women being flirty with each other in modern music videos, but that’s not what’s happening here. The singer, Lycinaïs Jean, sings about her love for in this case a woman, and visualizes that. Again, beautiful visuals.. And the song? Fire!
