Mid-Week Muse

Have you ever listened to a song and thought, wow that totally reminds me of ____!

Songs do that ALL the time. Sometimes it’s because a certain song has become a theme  for a popular movie. Like Robin Hood Prince of Thieves and Bryan Adams. Come on, you know what song I’m talking about.

What? You don’t know? Hold on….

And yes, this song is so perfect and romantic that I walked down the aisle to the instrumental. But, I don’t think it would have been as romantic if it hadn’t been played during an intense scene of the movie.

A few of you 80’s folk, may know this next one.


Point is, we hear a song and it triggers a memory or a feeling. Starting next week, every Wednesday I’ll showcase a song and the book it reminds me of. A book theme song! Add in a dash of a review and you’ve got one complete course.

Tell me, is there a song from a movie that you hear and get all nostalgic?

  1. Love your new blog look!
    Yes- just about any of the songs associated with the John Hughes movies always make me feel nostalgic, whether it's Twist and Shout (or Danke Shoen) from Ferris Bueller, or "don't you forget about me" from The Breakfast Club, or the Otis Redding song Duckie lipsyncs to in Pretty in Pink…. ahhh, good memories. I love this idea and can't wait to see what you do with it!
