As we sit here anxiously on a blustery Monday in Overland Park, Kansas, the whole family is awaiting news from the doctor to see if we'll be meeting our youngest daughter sometime today.
Music is a special thing. When I search songs by their release year, it's like looking back at a bunch of still memories floating in my head. A song title alone can take me back to the people and places I cared about most at the time. It's funny how much some of those things change, and how some stay exactly the same.
Here's what I found today.
1. Crazy Love- Van Morrison- This song has been in the movies "Phenomenon" and "Nine Months." I've always really liked it, and on standing on the verge of the outpouring of emotion that comes with a new child, it's fitting today.
2. Unwell- Matchbox 20- I always think about the transition period in my life (2003-2004). I felt confused, alone, uncertain, and exiled. I don't know if I really like this song all that much because of that, but it certainly caused a visceral reaction when I heard it.
3. Gone 'Till November- Wyclef Jean- Another transition period song, but this one was high school to college (1998-1999). It's a good enough song.
4. Breakfast at Tiffany's- Deep Blue Something- I still don't understand this song, but it's a very good reminder of EARLY high school (1994-1995).
5. Paradise City- Guns n' Roses- Two words..."The Stare." Can't beat it.
Have a great Monday!
