Music Monday - "I'm Gonna Be" by The Proclaimers
For other tales of musical adventure, please visit Soccer Mom in Denial.
Last week I posted what many believed to be a sad story. And I thank you for your sympathy. And yes, it was sad at the time, but as someone said, the break-up line was one of the most bizarre (and hysterical) ever, and for what I can mine from that alone, with 20 years' retrospect, the pain was probably worth it. And it was an adventure. So from that romance, I gained "Love Stinks" and the knowledge to avoid future Love Stinkers.
This week, I reveal myself as Nerd Princess of the Universe. For all my (hip) love of U2, Barenaked Ladies, Dave Matthews, John Lennon, each of whom have written simply stunning love songs of one type or another, I felt I had to show some sunshine love this week by revealing my favorite romantic song of ALL time.
And it's below.
Yes, those two incurable romantics, the brothers Reid, better known as The Proclaimers, charged into my life with this powerful, pure declaration of love. Simple, nerdy, determined. And that's my D all over. Er... not the simple part. But he's always been the kind of guy who lets me know just how important I am to him, and yeah, he's also nerdy and determined and funny, just like The Proclaimers themselves.
And, on top of everything else, I get to show some young Johnny Depp through the clip below, from Benny and Joon. And what could be better than young Johnny, the two Scottish lads, and happy memories of finding my one true love!
So, D, this is for you:
