But Before the Story Ends...

Weekly Song Sketch

Photobucket

Happy Valentine's Day! I love every holiday (checking...um...yes, every holiday) even the much maligned Valentine's so I thought I'd do a particularly lovey song for this week's song sketch. Awww...

It's from Singin' in the Rain but, for some reason, I couldn't find it in any recording except for the wacky film version, complete with Lina Lamont's voice. But it seems perfect for this trés romantic day, all about wanting the person you're with to match up with the men we read about/watch films of. I definitely can identify with holding men to a standard made up from years of falling for fictional heros.



If you would like a copy for yourself, just leave a request in the comment (if it's your first request, please leave your email). Again, my bandwidth on the file hosting site is pretty tight so it may take a while to load - if so, feel free to ask for the song and you can listen to at your leisure.

P.S. Feel free to follow me! I promise only ever to lead you to bright, sunny places!

  24. Beautiful all around, Emma. I love how your photo collage correlates to the song and your statement about holding men to storybook hero standards. You have such a nice little collection of old books. They're so pretty in their worn and faded delicateness.

  25. Oh Emma, you are so adorable!
    I love the photo collage (very "librarian chic"), and I adore that song too. I can't believe I've never requested a song from you before. Email this one to me, please? I think you have my email already, but if not - you can find it on my blog.

    xx
