I am, yet again, a thief. I’ve stolen this meme from…hmmm…someone. I’ve seen it all over the blogosphere recently and took note of it whilst visiting Joan or Teeni or Moonbeam…sorry gals, can’t remember where I saw it first so you all get mention. Anywho…the deal-e-o is that you are supposed to post a song that really gets to you. You know, the one song that just yanks those damn heart strings and makes you ache inside…causes you to reflect…or just plain makes you writhe on the the floor in sobs. Yeah, right, like a song could do that. Okay…on with the game. As usual, besides the fact that I swiped this, I am not tagging, and I’m not following the rules because I cannot simply post just ONE song. There are so many songs out there that evoke my emotions but I’ve managed to narrow it down to two. And here you go…
Rob Thomas – Little Wonders
Yes, the video is hokey, but I couldn’t find a live version, so deal. Besides, who doesn’t want to look at the fine Mr. Thomas? The first few lines of this song get me every time…
Let it go
Let it roll right off your shoulder
Don’t you know
The hardest part is over
Let it in
Let your clarity define you
In the end
You will only just remember how it feels
Whew. Okay, deep breath.
And then there’s this one:
Marc Cohn – Walk Through the World
Likewise, I was hoping to find a live version of this song as I prefer it performed as such. Damn this song. This song actually gives me chills as soon as I hear it and by the end I’m pretty much guaranteed to be crying. Oy. I’m such a hopeless romantic that the simple line, “Walk through this world with me” says it all. If I EVER get to see Mr. Cohn perform this live I will probably be asked to remove myself from the venue due to my uncontrollable blubbering.
Wow, that was tough listening to two of my pullers-of-the-heart-strings songs back to back.
Play along if you’d like. I stole it, so you can, too. I know…I’m a bad influence.
