The history of the Love Song

When you think of the history of the love song what comes to mind; Greek poets, European troubadours? How about the Middle East and Africa? In his new book," Love Songs: the Hidden History American," jazz critic and music historian Ted Gioia points out how the love song knows no boundaries. He joins us on the Morning Shift to pull the curtain back on the history and share some of his favorite love songs for the ages. (Flickr/allyaubry)
