Looking for Love

New York is a lovely place. I love how busy it is–the city that never sleeps. We arrived in NYC at 10 o’clock at night. But with the interminable queuing at the immigration, we didn’t get on the train until 12 midnight. When we finally emerged from the subway and were hauling our luggage along Manhattan, we were desperate for a restful sleep. Much of our days and nights in New York were like that–walking, train rides, and foot cramping. We had a packed itinerary… so we were working on a schedule.

On the first day we were supposed to encounter Time Square before “Book of Mormon”, but we got heavily delayed at the Rockefeller Center, and only had time for dinner. This meant that we had to miss out on seeing the the LOVE-HOPE sculpture. It wasn’t that special. It may be overrated… but I guess the small time romantic in me wanted to believe in a chance at Love and Hope. Luckily that same night, we randomly passed by “HOPE” and I thought… maybe, just maybe, I’d get to find love here in New York, too.

And I did…

Song In My Head: How Will I Know?

A Whitney Houston fan, I’ve always liked this song, but I was surprised to find out that Sam Smith did an awesome cover of this song in his traditional ballad style of singing. During a leisurely Instagram browsing session I came upon a choreographed dance to the Sam Smith version and I fell in love…

Song In My Head: The Scientist

So Coldplay’s coming over for a concert–now that’s something I’d want to see. I’ve always liked Coldplay and Chris Martin. I love the poetry in his music and his voice–well, of course. Anyway, the song in my head for today is an old Coldplay song that I first encountered in “Wicker Park”. Do you know that movie? It is about a guy and girl who falls in love by chance–and another girl who maneuvers their two worlds, to keep them apart. I became obsessed with that film when it came out (because of Josh Harrnett) and I was equally crazy about the soundtrack. I can’t remember if this is the video that was playing backwards–check the video below, I think it is.
Anyway, ‘The Scientist” is a fairly straightforward song about love, heartbreak and second chances.

I Want to Have a Conversation with Adele

Once upon a time, I fell in love with Adele. I don’t exactly remember which song I first heard, but I remember listening through “19” and falling in love with the songs and her powerful voice. When “21” came out, I fell in love with her even more, and that’s when the love affair started. Adele is a common feature on my personal and clinic playlists. She is a staple on my karaoke song list and although I can never do an impressive rendition, I take it on with much courage.
