So ready to get mushy … tonight’s 30 Day Music Challenge question is …A song that makes you want to fall in love.   I think the question is worded weirdly … do songs really make you want to fall in love or do you fall in love and then songs have new meaning?  (I guess it’s a chicken/egg scenario … what comes first?)

I have always loved the below song.  Paul Wellar who was one half of the The Style Council used to be the front man of one of my all time favorite bands – The Jam.   So when The Jam broke up and he formed this new band that had quite a different sound I was nervous that I wasn’t going to love it.  But I did.  Now I heard this song long before I ever met my husband and I can’t say honestly the song made me want to fall in love.   However, when I did meet my husband and we did fall in love, I realized how perfect this song was.

I have told my listeners before how my twenties were a challenge …and one of my go-to behaviors was essentially running away (I mean not just down the street … I lived in three different countries and many different places).   So when I met my husband the lyrics to this song really took on a much deeper meaning …

I could runaway
But I’d rather stay
In the warmth of your smile lighting up my day
The one that makes me say
‘Cause you’re the best thing that ever happened
To me or my world
You’re the best thing that ever happened
So don’t go away…
And lucky for me … he didn’t go away … we will be married 23 years in August and I still think he is the best thing that ever happened to me or my world.
So on Day 26 of the 30 Day Music Challenge … I give you … The Style Council/You’re the Best Thing.

Okay … your turn to get mushy now …. hop over to Facebook and tell me ‘a song that makes you want to fall in love’  (or like me a song that took on more meaning when you did fall in love. )
