    […] it bumped REO Speedwagon back a spot…because I’d forgotten all about it when I wrote The Beat Goes On – or I’d have had to do a top […]

    Rob Thomas is a little hottie!

    Music is a huge part of everything. For example, your second song instantly took me back to a slow dance with my high school boyfriend. Dang! It was a song on the radio that finally got me off my butt and writing my stories. My husband and I were married to “After All” by Cher and Peter Cetera because it described our relationship in a nutshell.

      What a great song for your wedding! I had a heck of a crush on Peter Cetera in the early 90’s (and he can sing, too!). It’s amazing what music can do for your creativity, isn’t it? I get ideas for scenes from songs, and even certain characters because lyrics can just make you see them in your mind. I have one who came into being because of the country song He Didn’t Have To Be (Brad Paisley). That video makes me cry every time I watch it, lol, but I loved the concept of a step-father like that.

    Oh yeah – I do love me some Rob Thomas first thing in the morning (or any time for that matter!!) My #1 romantic song (& my wedding song) is from Ben Folds called “The Luckiest” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S1qL2ynRpXU … he doesn’t usually perform with the symphony, but this arrangement is awesome…

      I agree 100%, Karen! When I first saw this video I swear I must have watched it fifty times in a week, lol. Not only is the song one of my very favorites…wow, Rob Thomas is just too cute for my own good. I’m listening to The Luckiest right now and it is a beautiful song. How is it I’ve never heard of it, or Ben Folds? Good choice for your wedding! 🙂

    Hello Kristy!
    I came across your blog through twitter. Nice post . Thanks for sharing the music videos.
    I loved Nothing’s gonna change as a teen. My music list now is mostly Carnatic music- a form of Indian Classical Music.

      Hi, Suma…
      Nice to meet you! I’ve never heard of Carnatic music (or at least not by a categorical name) so I’m going to have to check into that. I love all sorts of music and find that classical is very relaxing. Thanks for telling me about it…and for visiting my blog. 🙂
