Love me like a song.

The most flattering thing happened to me today. A friend and old lover that I haven’t seen in several years was chatting with me via instant message. I don’t quite remember how it came about but he informed me that a song on his last CD was about me. Granted this was recorded four years ago but still it surprised me because he had never mentioned it before. I, of course, wanted to hear it immediately and since I don’t have itunes at work I had to search sites for a sound bite. It was ten minutes of absolutely gorgeous and creative jazz bliss. I’m still blushing that anyone could possibly hear that and think of me. I only wish I had known then.

This isn’t the first time someone wrote/composed a song about me. I’ve dated more than a few musicians and some of them might be a little bitter. Some just share too much. I remember going to see an ex’s band at a big venue and standing with his current girlfriend watching her sing along to a song about our sex life. That was strange.


I used to beg Sky not to write a song about me because I was afraid of what he would say. Some of his stuff is hilarious but other pieces force me to wonder who they are about. He claims nobody. I have a hard time believing that. I remember he told me once that usually when he was dating someone they would keep asking for him to write a song. That’s a lot of pressure. Plus if it was any good he would be performing it at his gigs and all your friends would know. It seems so personal and yet you share it with everyone. See, this is why I don’t write my own music. I’m incapable of sharing my emotions.


Still, I’m so completely flattered.

So where is the link to the song?

I used to always scoff at guys who were musicians who wrote songs for their girlfriends. Of course, I only did so because I was jealous that I have no musical talent at all.

A love song could be awkward... a hate song ever worse... but a 10 minutes of jazz bliss sounds pretty awesome. Link??

Can't blame the musicians in your life. You are a BABE! You inspire them to write tunes about you!

That would be pretty cool, but, I too would find it a bit embarrassing to have a song written about me. Nothing like being Swedish/English for suppressing emotions ;)

That's cool...I really should write a song about you too, but then you'd probably never speak to me again without a bodyguard and lawyer at your side. Cheers Knight!!
