Do you and your Loverboy** have a "song"???
This is serious, people!
Edited to add: YES, I am just shy of 30 (akkk) and possibly having a mid-something moment with this post subject matter.
On the way to work the other day, Wonderful Tonight by Eric Clapton came on the radio, which immediately made me think of C, my oldest middle/high school friend and one of her teenage boyfriends. See, Wonderful Tonight was their "song". This fact stood out to me loud and clear and has remained in my consciousness for a number of reasons.
Yes, there's a list:
2. It was a very grown-up song for people our age at the time, but not at all out of character.. our parents are all hippies/music junkies/band members/etc. We weren't exactly sitting around listening to NKOTB. Also, my name is AJA.
And finally, the biggest reason of all.
3. I have NEVER had a "song" with any boyfriend/husband/loverboy. EVER.
So needless to say, every time ol Clapton starts crooning about how wonderful whatshername is looking tonight, I have a quick walk down memory lane and a mild panic attack that we need to get on the ball somehow.
So am I right?? Are we missing out? Will our children one day ask us to tell them about our love story and share our special song, only to be answered with blank stares and shared side-eyes from their wrinkly parents??
I will say- I've brought this matter up to the hubs a few times, and I just don't think he's as concerned as I am. Shocker. It may have something to do with the fact that every time Roxette's It Must Have Been Love comes on, I declare it to be our song. Not that anything is Over Now.. Oh no no no no. I just like the song.
So dish it up. What's your "song". And if you have any suggestions for what our
everlasting symbol of our relationship "song" should be, please let me know if the comments. Clearly, we can use all the help we can get.
**Sorry about the "Loverboy" reference. I'm in a mood.
