Language help - announcing songs at a gig - 02-05-2018, 01:50 AM

Hey, everyone.

I'm performing a few songs at a musicians' bar in Chiba. My Japanese is strictly beginner. So could anyone help me to say the following in Japanese?


"Happy Valentines Day for tomorrow! I'd like to do three love songs..."


"First a Beatles' song. It was written by George Harrison. But I'm doing Paul McCartney's ukulele-version. It's called Something."


"Next, two love-songs by John Denver..."


"Hello, again. Now another Beatles' song. One of my favourites..."


"And finally, a couple of Bob Dylan songs..."



Grateful thanks to anyone who can help.
Gary
