"What Are You Doing Valentine's Day?"
February 20, 2018 03:56 PM PST

Did you grab more than your share of discount candy? Well, we want to know what you did this Valentine’s Day. Our friends from ART Center have created a song to the tune of “What Are You Doing New Year’s Eve?” to find out just that!
With the song, the group wanted to write a holiday song for Valentine's Day since there's not one they knew of for that particular holiday. Our Long Beach composers decided to brainstorm ideas for what makes Valentine's Day such a great holiday. For the past couple of weeks, the group voted on which lyrics to use, what instruments everyone wanted to play, and whether we wanted an original melody or an interpretation of a classic. So without further ado, please enjoy a new classic: “What Are You Doing Valentine’s Day?”

"I bought you flowers that grew from the sun
To show I care and that you’re the one
What are we doing Valentine’s, Valentine’s Day?

I got you chocolate kisses to enjoy
Seeing you happy gets me overjoyed
What are we doing Valentine’s, Valentine’s Day?

It might be a long shot, but I need to know
Give me a yes or give me a no
Will you be my one and only Valentine?

I went ahead and bought you a card
To try and show you the feelings of my heart
What are we doing Valentine’s, Valentine’s Day?"

Valentine’s Day is almost here, and love is in the air at Able ARTS Work. What’s the best way to celebrate this holiday? You guessed it: DANCE (or maybe some candy)! Here are some picks from our friend, DJ PJ, that are sure to get the crowd grooving!

"La Bicicleta" by Shakira and Carlos Vives
"Love on The Brain" by Rihanna (Radio Edit)
"Let’s Marvin Gaye and Get It On" by Charlie Puth & Meghan Trainor 
"Finesse" Remix by Bruno Mars ft. Cardi B 
"Bonita" by Jowell y Randy ft. J.Balvin

To finish, we slow things down a bit with duet with our friend, Jesse Cantlay, singing Ed Sheeran’s “Thinking Out Loud.”

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Digital Discoveries!

Hello everybody! You are in for a treat. Our friends from CECA have created an awesome composition. The song came out of the class named “Digital Discoveries” which uses technology to record. We were memorizing and learning to spell the class name, and the song gradually came to existence as we were continuously repeating the phrase "Di-gi-tal Dis-co-ve-ries." We just hit “record” and rest is history! All the sounds that the artists made were on the spot without any prompting or rehearsal. The song was recorded in one take, and artists helped to choose the filter for the sound. Enjoy!
