Love and Music

Chocolate on my Cranium did it again - a great Wordful Wednesday prompt. Yea, I'm a day late (yesterday wasn't a good day) but as I went through my crappy day yesterday, I found that I longed to here these songs more. So, here are the three songs that while they may not be "our songs" they are ones that make me think fondly of Enoch and adore him a little more.

*Note - I'm updating this at my school which has YouTube blocked, so I've linked to the songs - just look around for the play buttons on each site to hear these songs, and some are just a part of the song, but you'll get the basic idea :)

When Enoch and I started dating, I had a compilation of Blues CD's and this song came on one night. We danced to it in my room, and it kindof became the song that we loved to listen to, dance to and that makes me smile everytime I hear it.

I LOVE her voice! I could listen to her all the time. When Enoch and I had been married just a year, we found this CD and gave it to Enoch's dad for Christmas. We then promptly stole it back, put it on our computer and gave it back to him. This song is sung by many other people, but I think it needs to be by Ella - she did it best, and Louis Armstrong is just awesome. My sweet husband just put his arms around me yesterday while we listened to this song. Yea, he's amazing.

I guess these are more a build me up songs and make be feel beautiful, sexy and amazing. They are the songs that Enoch says he plays to remind him of me. Every girl needs a guy who has a few songs that make her sound this good, right?

And there you have it - some of "our songs" - what are yours?

Fun topic Tash. Jeff might not agree that these are "our songs," but they are the ones that make me think of him.

"Happy Together," by The Turtles

"The Cloths of Heaven" by Z. Randall Stroope (

"I Melt With You," by Modern English

There is another 80's song too, but I can't think of it right now. It'll come to me in the middle of the night, I'm sure.

My husband and I love jazz. Ella Fitzgerald is a personal favorite.

For our love songs, though, we prefer R & B. It's true.

Still can't think of that 80's song I was looking for, but here's a couple more recent ones:

"Lucky," by Jason Mraz and Colbie Caillat

"Chasing Cars," by Snow Patrol
