Time for installment number two (ha I said number two...yeah I know I have the maturity level of a 9 year old boy). This week's post is another kind of mellow song but it one of my favorites as well. When I was getting married my now ex husband and I were looking (well mainly I was just looking) for the perfect song to dance to as our first dance. I have been forever a fan of James Taylor and have memories of being a little kid sitting in the corner of my dinning room next to my Dad's huge speakers listening to all the great singer/songwriters of that time. This song makes me tear up everytime I hear it. I wanted to be Carly Simon as a kid, I thought she was beautiful and would put an old towel over my head and pretend like I had long hair like she did. You Can Close Your Eyes was written as a lullaby for his son, but it was absolutely the most perfect song to dance to at my wedding. The marriage didn't last but it never tarnished my memory of this beautiful piece of music.
My favorite part about this video is how as the two of them are singing this really pretty song the captions are talking about their divorce and his drug addictions. Ahhh how romantic. At least I am choosing to believe at the time they made this they were happy in love and not strung out on heroin. : ) Happy Monday!!
