I spent a lot of time sitting on my butt this weekend and little time sleeping – so you will have to bear with me as I am more than likely going to be cranky all week. BUT there was a few silver linings to the lack of sleep and excess bus traveling clouds:

  1. I got to visit NYC, pretend I could navigate the subway, AND see my sister direct an off-broadway show (Private Policy – it was amazing)
  2. I got to visit Live It Out Photography, her husband, and her cute little flat in Brooklyn. We also met a super awesome Aussie at a bar on 4th Ave and talked about music into the wee hours of the night.
  3. Frank Turner released his newest album this past week, Tape Deck Heart. The 10 hours I spent on Bolt bus this weekend allowed me to listen to this insanely awesome album on repeat. It’s incredible. Seriously. Buy it now.

Thanks to #3, we have today’s Wedding Music That Doesn’t Suck song suggestion courtesy of Frank’s “The Way I Tend to Be”.

Sometimes when I hear certain songs, my mind is INSTANTLY taken to a wedding dance floor – the bride’s dress is swooshing across the floor as the groom dips her. I mentally watch this scene like a recording of a movie video, the couple mouthing the lyrics to each other:

…and you taught me and here’s what I learned:
That love is about the changes you make and not just three small words.

Yeah, I know how crazy that sounds – but I literally cannot help myself. I hear these certain songs and I just think they would be perfect for a modern wedding – especially today’s song that I think would make an awesome first dance song. Here is a snippet of the song (as the whole thing is not yet on Grooveshark):

What do you think? Think it could work for a first dance song? Or maybe you just think I am mentally ill for imagining fake weddings in my mind when I hear music.

No worries, that’s cool too.
