What's Your Song? Thursday Link Up!

Today's song selection might surprise some people. Why? Because I'm 23. You'd expect me to be one of those people who listened to and fantasized over boy bands. Ok, when I was a pre-teen, I did. But I grew up listening to classic rock with my dad, and disco with my mom. I have a very eclectic taste in music. I love rock of all sorts, but can't stand that emo/punk crap. I'd choose Polish reggae over pop any day. I like some rap, but most of it just seems dumb to me. I also find I am more focused on writing code (as I am a software developer) if I'm listening to Trip-Hop. Techno gets annoying after the first 1-2 minutes of each song. I could keep going, as I have opinions about every type of music. My whole point is that I'm not a mainstream/normal type of chick.

Now back to the song... To preface this - the first time I heard this song was at the end of one of my favorite movies, Space Cowboys. If you haven't seen it, you should! Tuesday evening we had horrible storms rip through our area. Our tornado sirens were going off, the sky was black, and I was huddled up with my birds and hamsters in the bathroom, without A/C because our apt complex just "hadn't gotten around to it yet." In Texas, life without A/C sucks. Anyways, you might have noticed I didn't mention my hubby. Well, that's because he decided to go outside and hang out with all the crazy people taking pictures of the storm instead of getting to a safe place. As a pessimist by nature, I was freaking out the whole time he was gone. To calm myself down, I started singing the song we played as our recessional song after the wedding ceremony. We got married under the stars at the UT-Arlington Planetarium. I'm happy to say that he came back inside with me, and there was no damage done in the storm. The song's been stuck in my head ever since.

Wtihout further ado, here's Ol' Blue Eyes with Fly Me to the Moon

If you want to join in on the fun, head on over to Goodnight Moon and link up!


  1. This song is actually in my playlist already! I adore it!!!! Well really, I just adore Frank! Isn't he so awesome! I think that Michael Buble is our Frank Sintra of our time? What do you think?

    Thanks for linking up this week!!!!

  2. Frank Sinatra! Always a great choice! We've had terrible storms in Missouri since Sunday night, and I'm hoping they have officially died down for the weekend. I know what you mean about being a pessimist! :)

  3. I love Michael Buble, and I agree, he could be the Frank of our time. It's just too bad that this type of music has fallen by the wayside, and even gets laughed at by the younger generations... I often feel I was born a decade or two too late.
