Thursday is tracks night: A modest proposal.

Lately, I've been into some kind of sappy (beautiful) music. Upon sharing a few pints with some friends at the pub, I played Bright Eyes' song First Day of My Life. I nonchalantly admitted I would love to sing this song at my wedding some day. Yes, I told you I've been into the sap, but I'm o.k. with that. Anyway, the very same friend said I should check out Train's Marry Me suggesting this might be my new wedding song. I replied, "That's just silly, because I would have already done the proposal long before the ceremony..."

Although I won't be singing it at my someday wedding, I did think it was a sweet little tune that brought a little more of the sap in of me.

By the way, if you haven't already done so, I definitely recommend moseying on over to NPR and check out their coverage of SXSW 2011. They feature video of full length concerts from the festival. It's definitely worth checking out if you're into good tunes and ear porn. Every year NPR sheds light on a new band that I usually end up falling in love with, so you too could find a new band or artist to drool over as you listen.


  1. I just love that song, Marry Me! And there's nothing wrong with a little sappy every once in a while.

  2. God tune. And that quote at the head of your blog. Is that Klatu from Day the Earth Stood Still? 50's black and white scifi is stil the best.

  3. Tony: Why yes, that is the quote from the original Klatu from the 1950s Day the Earth Stood Still. Good catch and agreed :)

  4. Sometimes sappy is just right!
    Marry Me is a great song to listen to on this rainy sort of day.

  5. My favorite song right now is "Marry Me" by Train. It makes me think of my wedding even thought it happened nearly 9 years ago!
