Happy Valentine’s Day!
Have you ever noticed how many songs sing descriptive words about a person’s eyes? We listen to music in the surgical suite throughout our day so we hear a lot of music. I love to listen to the words of songs and it struck me one day that apparently to many musicians the eyes really are the window to the soul! Check out this list of songs that specifically speak of the eyes…this blog is simply to say Happy Valentine’s Day from Dr. Holzman and his staff…and to open your eyes (pun intended) to the symbolic meaning of your eyes…they inspire songs that we love…and depending on your musical preference some that we hate…
In your eyes by Peter Gabriel – by far one of the top songs for symbolic meaning.
