Monday Musings

It’s a MMMM.

Short for moody musical Monday morning. I feel compelled to share a selection of songs that reside on a shelf in my heart’s museum. A place reserved for very cherished things. I have carefully curated a list for your enjoyment. So please indulge, reflect, comment on your unique experience with these sounds. Music speaks a different language to each and every listener. I find that concept endlessly fascinating.

Let’s get lost.

Favorite lines:

I don’t know if we’re in a garden
Or on a crowded avenue
You are here / So am I

Musing: In my humble opinion, this one of the most romantic songs ever composed. The tiptoeing reverb, aching bass and dreamy lyrics combine effortlessly and make this a timeless piece of sentimental love.

Favorite lines:

You’re dislocated, don’t be like that
And you smile when you drive in, like you’re never coming back

Musing: This song is the personification of contemplative heartache, as I have experienced it.

Favorite Lines:

I’ve looked for love in all the same old places
Found the bottom of a bottle always dry
But when you poured out your heart I didn’t waste it
‘Cause there’s nothing like your love to get me high

Musing: This song is smooth and gritty somehow at the same time. When he croons the word “sweet” in the line about strawberry wine? Ridiculous.

My favorite line from this is… every. single. line.

Everything. It speaks for itself. I can’t even describe something so beautiful.

"She would fill endless notebooks with stories about the characters in her life, their impressions, words, friends, lovers, inspirations, fantasies. She spent her days dreaming up worlds where they fit together in visions; the if only, the never again, the someday. Those who knew her best would describe her as a creature with a clear and sometimes painful sense of herself; furious with ideas and convictions, to a point that she frightened love away with discernment and a relentless strength of character."
