Eee! So exciting Edie! Wishing you a lovely, stress-free and wonderful day! And yay for reconnecting with friends. I actually got to see 2 of my ol’ college friends yesterday and the laughs and reminiscing was so fun. I really missed them.
Willie Nelson- you are always on my mind. I know he’s become something of a joke lately, but that song hits me right in the feels. Others have recorded it- but his voice kills me. I think it’s that the couple is still in the relationship, and the man is growing and realizing he needs to appreciate his partner more.
Haha did you take the quiz? I got Natalie.
My comment got Kinja’d last night, but what surprised me was that—at that point anyway—no one had mentioned this fabulous classic by the divine Ms. Etta James:
For a short term romance, Heartbeats by the knife, as played by Jose Gonzalez.
Oh wow, that’s terrific! :D The time flies, doesn’t it?
Annie’s Song by John Denver, This Must Be The Place by Talking Heads, Thunder Road by Bruce Springsteen
I used to sing Your Song (Elton John) to my dog and she never liked it. She died about 5 years ago and I can’t hear this song and not think of her.
this will forever be one of my favorites bc of cheesy reasons, but I truly love it. Feels real to me.
True Companion by Marc Cohn.
I’ve always loved Ingrid Michaelson’s “The Way I Am” because the scope is so small and personal compared to the more vague and grandiose romantic songs.
I love all those Nick Cave songs, especially Ship Song! I’m going to see him next month. on his conversations tour. I can't wait. 😭
