Day 14 – A song that reminds you of your boyfriend/girlfriend

The song that reminds me of my boyfriend husband is this one. I remember, when we first started dating, he picked me up in his purple Talon and we went for a drive. I can’t remember where we went, but I remember that he played this song in his car and it was the first time I ever heard of this band.

 

Day 13 – A song that reminds you of a former friend

Funny enough, this song reminds me of a former friend. I can picture us listening to this song, over and over and over again on our CD players. Fantasizing what it would be like to marry Nick Carter (You did too didn’t you?!?!) .

Day 12 – The last song you heard

This is the last song I heard on the radio. It’s so catchy. How can you not love it?

What’s the last song you heard?

Day 11 – A song on the soundtrack of your favourite movie

In school I never read The Great Gatsby, so when the movie came out I was surprised by how many people have already read the novel by F. Scott Fitzgerald. I loved so many things in this movie. The love story, the glam, the storyline, the soundtrack. I LOVED the soundtrack to this movie. Did you know that Jay-Z was the executive producer on the soundtrack? Yeah. Cool eh?

Emeli Sande version of Crazy in Love really caught my ear while watching the movie. If you’re a fan of Beyonce and big band music, you’ve got to have a listen.

Here is one of my favourite parts of the movie. “Who is this Gatsby?”

Day 10 – A song by your favourite band

For Day 10, I’m supposed to pick a song by my favourite band. My favourite band of all time is The Beatles. A couple of year’s ago, I was lucky enough to go to Toronto and see Paul McCartney live and it was incredible. If I was born in the 50’s, I think I would have made a great groupie. I would have had pictures of The Beatles all over my walls, bought the pencil cases, the t-shirts, etc… *sigh*

Here are a few videos from the Beatles in the 60’s:

Day 09 – A song that reminds you of your “first love”

My husband is my “first love”. When I was younger, I feel like I thought I was in love with my ex-boyfriends, I may have, but it’s not the same kind of love that I have for my husband and daughter now. It’s different.

A song that reminds me of my “first love” is this one. Our wedding song. Enjoy!

Day 07 – A song that reminds you of the past summer

SUMMER ISN’T OVER YET!

But, if I had to pick a song it would be this one by Pharrell Williams. “You wanna ride it? My motorcycle”.

On July 20, a few of us went to watch the Ottawa MX National‘s in Sand Del Lee in Richmond, Ontario. It was so fun! We didn’t say long, because we had our little one with us, but for what we did see we liked it. I think if I went back next year, I would try and be more prepared (BYO food, chairs, shade, maybe even a camper). Good times. Have you ever been? What did you think?

Day 06 – A song that reminds you of a best friend

Oh man this song brings back memories. Especially that time one time, when we went to Key West for a friend’s wedding. We sang this song the entire trip! Really, the ENTIRE trip.

If you girl’s are reading this, here is the YouTube video starting at “the good part”.

Day 04 – A song that calms you down

I’m not sure why this song has this feeling over me, but every time I listen to it, I instantly relax. Maybe it’s because I make myself think that I’m on a beach somewhere, warm, drinking a pina colada.. I’m not sure, but hey, who wouldn’t want to do that to relax?
