Soundtrack to TAN's Heart: You & I

This is not to be confused with the Soundtrack of Your Life. There's no randomness to this, these are the songs that play when my heart runs the itunes.

First up: You & I, by Stevie Wonder. This is the song I'd like Stevie to sing at my wedding. This is the song my heart cues up whenever my mind thinks about "The One." It may be my life is all about finding the person for whom I can simply play this song, with tears streaming down my face, and all will be understood. I also think You & I can earmark a new trend: The Love Song is the new Breakup Song. As opposed to wallowing in the past, it offers a bittersweet sentiment of hope and looking to the future. That's the new ish son.

MP3 File

Here we are
on earth together
It's you and I
God has made us fall in love, it's true
I've really found someone like you

Will it stay
the love you feel for me
Will it say
that you will be by my side to see me through
Until my life is through

Well, in my mind
we can conquer the world
In love, you and I
you and I
you and I

I am glad
at least in my life I found someone
that may not be here forever to see me through
but I found strength in you

I only pray
that I have shown you a brighter day
Because that's all that I am living for, you see
Don't worry what happens to me

Cause' in my mind, you will stay here always
In love, you and I
you and I
you and I
you and I

In my mind we can conquer the world
In love, you and I
you and I
you and I

    i heart you TAN. shhhh.

  3. You sellout. You're supposed to be a cool, heartless player. What's all this talk about emotion? bros before hoes TAN, never forget.

  4. nice post.

    the one that always does that for me is "i love you just the way you are" by billy joel.

    "don't go changin',
    to try and please me,
    you've never let me down before..."

    oy. SO good.

    ironically (and perhaps the ultimate example of how the breakup song can be the love song), is that it was my parent's wedding song. they're divorced now.
