My Top Ten Love Songs
Top Ten Tuesday

By request, a Top Ten Tuesday list of My Top Ten Love Songs. This list has changed over the years, and I had to trim off quite a few favorites to limit the list to Ten, and tomorrow, or next month, or next year, if this request came to me again, the list might look different. That said, I know there are a few that have been there for as long as I can remember, and will probably be sticking around for forever.

The list tends to veer older, with a few, more recent songs, woven in. The classics though are awfully hard to compete with, especially in regards to songs about love. They transcend cheesiness and contrived sentimentality, gifting something a bit more vulnerable, imperfect, and real.

This feature will include SPOILERS, so read at your own risk and consider yourself warned. Please share your thoughts in the comments to the shows I mini-review – I welcome all … Continue reading The Leftovers :: As Seen On TV :: If you had one wish, what would it be for?

Make you come home early :: SOTD

“Love and happiness… Something that can make you do wrong, make you do right… Love..”. One of the sexiest, most sensual songs ever. It reminds me of humid bedrooms with the curtains closed and the doors locked, combined body heat permeating the windows and walls. The touch of skin, sugar-sweat-sweet, blending in to that space of not knowing which is yours, and which is mine, which is you, and which is me. Words whispered, or not said at all, just sound, vibration, the rattle and hum of pleasure. The room is unfamiliar, uniform in that every hotel looks the same, … Continue reading Make you come home early :: SOTD
