What Song Punctuated Your Romance?

"If music be the food of love, play on,"  wrote Shakespeare in "Twelfth Night".     The  Bard probably knew from experience how passion is nourished by sweet sounds.

Most lovers have a signature song that whenever it's  heard later in life will rekindle memories of the beginnings of their romance.

Our song is "Misty".  The Erroll Garner classic.  When I saw the Bliss cartoon above in the Trib one morning, I looked up across the breakfast table and jokingly asked my wife, "Do you remember our song?"

She laughed at the absurdity of the  question.  Then  I started to hum a few bars.  I could see that same love light in her eyes that I first saw 46 years ago.  Time had not deflected  Cupid's missile.

Later I Googled the song and read the lyrics, strands of which I  whispered in her ear that night  as  we danced to Sarah Vaughan's sultry interpretation.

"Look at me, I'm as helpless as a kitten up a tree. And I feel like I'm clinging to a cloud. I can't understand. I get misty just holding your hand."

Is your song as beautiful as ours?

  • I don't have one, but I figure that for 20 somethings it probably is "that song on the American Family Insurance commercial." Bumpers are all I recognize.
