Love The One You’re With

Last night, while strolling the vendors at the Holiday Market along F St. between 7th and 9th Streets. NW, D.C., I came across a performance by the University of Maryland (College Park)’s co-ed Jewish a capella group, Rak Shalom. The group was good, and they sang a number of songs in Hebrew which was impressive. One of the non-religious songs they sang was Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young’s, “Love The One You’re With.”

You know how the lyrics go:

“If you can’t be with the one you love,

Love the one you’re with.”

This song obviously, is not a song for people who are alone. I understand that the song is supposed to promote the general loving of everyone, and while that is a nice idea, what are you to do when you are all alone?
