It's a slow time in the NFL calendar, and reading a couple comments made me think about songs with Jordan Love's last name in them. So I decided to assign a song with "Love" in the title to each Packers game. Hopefully none will be replaced with Nazareth's "Love Hurts". Disclaimer: Due to my age and particular taste in music, I know I got some of these wrong. Don't just tell me I'm stupid in the comments - Improve the list with substitution suggestions!
Week 1 @ bears: "What About Love" - Heart. In his first start, we don't really know what Love will be like. I also wanted to have something with at least a little bit of an edge to it for a bears game.
Week 2 @ Falcons: "I Want to Know What Love Is" - Foreigner. Way too slow a song for a division foe, but it's okay for Atlanta, and week 2 while we're still seeing what he's got.
Week 3 vs Saints: "Now That We Found Love" - Heavy D and the Boyz. First home game for Jordan Love as the real starter. What are we gonna do with it?
Week 4 vs Lions: "Friday I'm in Love" - The Cure. This is the Thursday night game, which is as close to Friday as the Packers get this year.
Week 5 @ Raiders: "Love Will Find a Way" - Yes. Feels like I should have done better for a game in Vegas, but I didn't. Hoping for a better suggestion here, even though I like this song.
Week 6 BYE: "Ain't Talkin Bout Love" - Van Halen. Hopefully this selection redeems me a bit. Seemed perfect for the bye week.
Week 7 @ Broncos: "Higher Love" - Steve Winwood. This one seemed like a no brainer for a game in the mile high city.
Week 8 vs. Vikings: "Victim of Love" - Eagles. The Vikings become Jordan Love's next victim.
Week 9 vs. Rams: "It's Only Love" - Brian Adams / Tina Turner. No real reason why, I just like the song.
Week 10 @ Pittsburgh. "Love Shack" - B 52s. It's a tin roof - rusted, not a steel roof, but I'll keep this song for the Steelers anyway.
Week 11 vs Chargers. "Fooled Around and Fell in Love" - Elvin Bishop. I needed a song here, and this one was in "Guardians of the Galaxy".
Week 12 @ Lions. "You Can't Hurry Love" - The Supremes. Had to be a Motown song for the game in Detroit.
Week 13 vs. Chiefs. "Love Stinks" - J. Geils Band. I almost put this one in the "hope we don't need it" category, but I decided instead to put it on the game most people think will be the hardest to win.
Week 14 @ Giants. "I Love a Rainy Night" - Eddie Rabbit. Night game, open stadium. Could have put this on week 13, but I'd rather have it rain on the Giants home fans than the Packers home fans.
Week 15 vs. Buccaneers. "Radar Love" - Golden Earring. How to beat pirates? With radar! Okay, that's a stretch, but there are a lot of these.
Week 16 @ Panthers. "Modern Love" - David Bowie. The most recent expansion team the Packers play this year.
Week 17 @ Vikings. "Love Me Two Times" - The Doors. For the second time playing the same opponent.
Week 18 vs. bears. "Do You Believe in Love" - Huey Lewis and the News. By this time, everybody will have an opinion on Jordan Love, and will have decided if they want the Packers to go on with him, or grab a new QB next year.
I know "The bears Still Suck Polka" is more appropriate for the first and last games, but since it doesn't have "Love" in the title, it doesn't work for this exercise. Like I said before, some of these can be improved, so improve them with comments.
