Spookyness and Romance

     Yes, I've changed my background again. Since Halloween is coming up, I wanted to do something spoooooky. I've got my Halloween decorations up in the house and it's gotten me in a spoooooky mood. Unfortunately, blogger templates didn't seem to get that memo. So this isn't all that spoooooky, but it does make me think of old school Vampires for some reason.
     And while Vampires won't help me to sleep, this song will, my answer to today's song challenge (30 Day Song Challenge, Day 10: A Song That Makes Me Fall Asleep).

A Nightingale Sang in Berkley Square by Harry Connick Jr.

     I used to play music to help me fall asleep. I had a mixed tape (ha- mixed tape! How old does that make me feel!) of quieter songs at first, and then later, I got a stereo that would program songs from CDs so I could only play the slow songs. This song is one of my faves from my mixed tape days. After seeing the movie Only You (Robert Downey Jr, and Marisa Tomei), I desperately wanted to reenact their slow-dancing-on-the-street-at-night-to-the-sound-of-a-saxophonist-playing-nearby scene. I think it's incredibly romantic. I would listen to this song and daydream about dancing with whatever crush I had going on at the time. It's a beautiful image- something I should put into a book one day!
