I celebrated my brother’s marriage on Saturday and it was such a special day. After being married for 8 years and it not working out, they decided to end it. They never lost their love for each other though and found their way back into each other’s arms again. My favorite part was watching them dance to ‘True Companion’ just like they had always talked about. Brought tears to my eyes!
Now on to today’s song.
I’ve loved Michelle Branch’s music for years – I remember listening to her Spirit Room CD on repeat when it came out.
She has come out with some new stuff recently that I am in love with, and today’s song is one of them – Loud Music.
Here’s one of my favorite lines:
It was like my life began that day I still remember what the jukebox started to play And then we had to take it on the road Start me up like a rolling stone
Today’ s Music Monday may make you laugh, it may bring back memories of watching every episode of the OC on Thursday nights way back when.
The song is Maybe I’m Amazed (The Jem version) and it was played on the last episode of Season 1 of the OC at Caleb and Julie’s wedding.
Justin and I got out all of our OC boxed sets last year and rewatched them all, and I have to say it was a fun little blast from the past. So fun that I’ve been watching season one episodes again at any chance I can get. Seriously my most current guilty pleasure.
My favorite line from this song:
Maybe i’m amazed at the way you pulled me out of time,
Hands Down by Dashboard Confessional is such a feel good song – it’s hard not to love.
Here’s my favorite line:
Hands down this is the best day I can ever remember, I’ll always remember the sound of the stereo, the dim of the soft lights, the scent of your hair that you twirled in your fingers and the time on the clock when we realized it’s so late and this walk that we shared together.
Perfection. The last part of the song reminds me of the first kiss I had with Justin, I think that’s why I love it so much 🙂
I first heard today’s song sung by Anberlin and was instantly in love with it.
Then I found out that The Smiths sang it originally and I was even more in love with it, because lets be honest.. songs from the early 90’s are awesome.
My favorite line:
And if a double-decker bus crashes in to us To die by your side is such a heavenly way to die And if a ten ton truck kills the both of us To die by your side- well the pleasure, the privilege is mine..
Alright, for all of you Twilight fans out there I decided to feature a song from Breaking Dawn. I couldn’t help but fall in love with Edward and Bella’s wedding – the venue and the dress were stunning.
A Thousand Years by Christina Perri
My favorite line:
But watching you stand alone All of my doubt suddenly goes away somehow One step closer
And in the music video for this song, you catch glimpses of the wedding:
I mean come on, you can’t help but love the song, right?
I think my favorite band of all time (or pretty close anyway) is Dashboard Confessional. So it’s no surprise that I am featuring another song by them on Music Monday.
Stolen by Dashboard Confessional
This song is off the album Dusk and Summer, which is the perfect summertime soundtrack. And because it’s snowing and super windy and cold right now, I could use a small reminder of summer. And even though I a married woman, I could stare at Chris Carrabba all day.
I watch you spin around in your highest heels You are the best one, of the best ones We all look like we feel
Can’t you just picture that?
Love the song, love him. Don’t worry, Justin already knows 🙂
