My favorite song for today is “Little Romance” by Ingrid Michaelson. Just in time for Valentine’s Day, Hoda Kotb worked with The Knot to unveil an original video, “Little Romance,” featuring Ingrid Michaelson and a special group of couples married over 50 years. You can check the video for this song by clicking  I am in the mood for love

“Little Romance”

You’re in the mood for love
You’re in the mood to dance
You’re in the mood for a little romance
You’re in the mood for love.I see you pressed those pants
I see you styled that hair
There doesn’t seem to be much of it there
You’re in the mood to dance.Can I have this chance
to be your little romance?
Can I have this dance?
I’m in the mood for love.

I’m all dressed up tonight
I’ve waited all night long
When will they finally play your song?
I’m in the mood to dance.

Can I have this chance
to be your little romance?
Can I have this dance?
I’m in the mood for love
I’m in the mood for love.

If it’s the only chance I get
(If it’s the only chance I get)
If it’s the only chance, then get
(If it’s the only chance, then get)
ready to throw your shoes away
(ready to throw your shoes away)
for I will sweep, sweep, sweep
you off your feet
I will sweep, sweep, sweep
you off your feet
to be your little romance

Can I have this chance
to be your little romance?
Can I have this dance?
I’m in the mood for you
You’re in the mood for me
We’re in the mood for love.

…we are in mood for…..
