Spunk on a Stick's Sad Song Blogfest this morning.
I had the post ready for automatic publishing, even.
I woke up this morning, and it was gone. Completely.
So I'm going to do a quick and dirty version. First, let me clear the air. I am NOT Jagger.
I believe in romance. In love at first sight. In happily ever after. Too bad my aim is shit.
Monday through Friday, I fetch Jagger's coffee (she likes Hazelnut flavor), dream about Mr. Right, and mop up after Jagger's misses. Trust me, Cupid PR is a full-time job.
Here's the top 10 songs I listen to when Jagger isn't in the office, because hey, I'm a romantic, not an idiot.
1. Fools Rush In - Elvis (and many others)
I love this UB40 take on a classic love song.
2. Must Have Been Love - Roxette
Um, you've seen Pretty Woman, right? Best romantic movie ever. Even though I've seen it a hundred times, I want to shout at the screen, "don't worry, Julia! It IS love and he's coming for you..." Though, you kind of deserve to be led on a bit for that cheesy last line.
3. Don't You Forget About Me - Simple Minds
Another classic movie anthem. The Breakfast Club is a brilliant love story - and hey, Judd, I've never forgotten about you.
4. Every Breath You Take - The Police
Jagger calls this the creepy stalker song, but I think she just doesn't get it. I mean, how romantic is it that Sting is singing about a girl he loves so much, he can't stop watching her...right?
5. Unchained Melody - The Righteous Brothers
If Ghost doesn't make you believe in eternal love, I know of a certain Cupid that would like to have coffee with you. For the rest of us, there's Patrick, Demi, and this song.
6. Incomplete - Backstreet Boys
I admit, I loves me some boy bands. And a list without this Backstreet Boys song would be...well, incomplete.
7. Bonnie Tyler - Total Eclipse of the Heart
Yeah, Bonnie, I fall apart when I listen to this song, too. Sigh.
8. I'd Do Anything For Love - Meatloaf
In one Meatloaf song, love is out of the question, but in this cheesy (but awesome) ballad, lead vocalist Marvin Lee Aday would do anything for it...except lie. I like a man with morals.
9. Thank You for Loving Me - Bon Jovi
Yes, I do love you Jon, and all of your sad love songs. You're welcome.
10. I Want to Know What Love Is - Foreigner
Okay, so this is my true love mantra. It's the song that makes me want to run after Mr. Right screaming, "I want to know what love is. I want YOU to show me." I don't think that's obsessive at all.
Wow...that was kind of...depressing. Excuse me while I rob Jagger's stash of JD and join her long list of unloved, unrequited and just plain desperate.
But not you. YOU should go check out the rest of the blogs in the Spunk on a Stick's Sad Song Blogfest. Jagger will return to her snarky self on Truth Tuesday.
