This week’s theme for Twisted Mixtape Tuesday is love songs.
While I’m not a big fan of the whole mushy sappy love thing, I do appreciate a little thought and romance from time to time. A note, a gesture, an acknowledgement that I’ve done something besides take up space in my house…
That’s right, in case you couldn’t guess my husband and I have been married for almost 15 years. Although we’re not exactly in the honeymoon phase, I do try to let him know on a regular basis that I still love him. I tell him every night, I leave him notes, I let him live. Over the years of our marriage I’ve created him various “mixtapes” (um… cds) of music for various occasions. I know there have been a few romantic mixes in there too. And I’m sure if I looked hard enough I’d find some of them.
Truth be told these days if I wanted to make him a “love mix”, outside of being able sneak into Pandora and make a secret station that automatically plays what I tell it to, I would have to create a playlist on Itunes. Only he doesn’t really have Itunes. I mean, he has it, but when he tried to download it a lot of questionable stuff came with it. So instead he’ll have to settle for listening to this edition of Twisted Mixtape Tuesday. It’s dairy-free, which means NO CHEESE!
(I once burned three whole CDs of what I consider full fat music-and appropriately entitled it “Don’t Forget The Cheese”.)
Interestingly enough there is no song that is entitled “I Had To Marry the Interesting Guy” or “It’s So Nice When You Are Conscious AND In A Good Mood”. So naturally the list contains other songs that I deem appropriate for such a playlist.
Maybe I’m amazed that I’ve let him live this long? Nah…
Maybe I’m Amazed-Paul McCartney
I’ve never had anyone write me a song. Maybe that’s a good thing? I’d be kind of scared about what might be written. I’m not totally ruling that out, you know, just in case you want to write me one, honey…
Your Song-Elton John
This song still makes me all twitterpated.
All I Ask of You-Cast of Phantom of the Opera
While I’m not a big Dierks Bentley fan I do love this song… I stuck in because yeah, I just like it…
I Wanna Make You Close Your Eyes-Dierks Bentley
Considering on which school of music you hail from, this might fall under your dairy category. I don’t care, it’s Journey, dangit! (Cut to the scene from Scrubs that I can’t find where Carla says to JD “Nobody loves Journey as much as you do…)
I’m saving you from the world’s longest music video… get it? I saved… oh, forget it, just listen to the song.
You Save Me-Kenny Chesney
What love songs drive you crazy? What love songs do you consider dairy free? I’d love to hear about them!
