Vintage Valentine gifts to make the heart pop!

When Nick Lowe played it with Rockpile in the late 1970s, it was pure power pop. When he plays it now, it’s a little slower with a soupçon of a reggae beat. No matter how he says it, the lyrics to Heart still capture that weak at the knees feeling of new love.

Heart, why are you pounding
Like a hammer
Heart, why are you beating like a drum
Heart, why do you make
Such a commotion
When I’m waiting for my baby to come

Candy is dandy. And always a popular choice. But to make your valentine’s heart beat like a drum, add a little special vintage something.

  1. I love seeing your vintage picks…Vintage Unscripted always finds such neat gift ideas. What a special treat to be included in your Valentine’s Day edition! Thank you. Now, I think I will go get my dance-on with a little “Heart” on youtube.
