Sweetheart Saturday – My Best Sweetheart

I’ve been working on a novelette for the Tulley Falls series – which will be free for newsletter subscribers (working on starting that again too!) and listening to a lot more music, which helps get me in the frame of mind to write. I’ve also been trying to ‘expand my horizons’ regarding the kinds of music I listen to.

It’s no secret that I have some longstanding favorites – REO Speedwagon, Boston, Chicago, Backstreet Boys, N’Sync, Elton John, a few other groups, and hit and miss songs from the 80s/90s pop, country, oldies, and even some real old oldies.

When it comes to current stuff though…except for Ed Sheeran…I turn to my daughter for advice. Because not all of my characters can love REO Speedwagon as much as I do, right? 🙂

One song, though, drew me in the first time I heard it on the radio. Aria too (more on her in a minute – or few)…

I love it! But even more, I love listening to Aria sing along with it. She is my best sweetheart, by the way. <3 

If I let her see that I’m recording something, she’s more interested in making faces than singing so I have to hide it. One thing I noticed while recording this is that if she were to decide to sing opera one day, I’d have to put all of the glassware my mother collected into storage. 🙂

  1. I like the song Sucker. 🙂 Have you heard the song Something Just Like This by The Chainsmokers and Coldplay? Here’s the link to the video in case you’re not aware of it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FM7MFYoylVs I love this song because it appreciates the average, every day man who’s a good guy. I think it fits the heroes we write about. 🙂

    Aria is so cute. 😀

      I have heard the song – many times. This is the first time I’ve actually paid attention tot he lyrics. I love it! And it does fit the every day kind of guy we write about. Heroes are great in a Marvel movie but for real life – and fiction that depicts real life – a good guy is more than good enough. 🙂

      And thank you. I agree. That child can hit some pretty high notes though! 😀
