Sad Song for Tuesdays – Cumbersome by Seven Mary Three

Researchers have found, according to a NPR report on a random day, that Americans are most unhappy on Tuesdays. The happy effect from the previous weekend has passed and the upcoming weekend seems far away.

So from the Vallory V blog, I add artistic validity to this sad day:

P.S. This song is best minutes before a break-up.

My favorite line: 

Too rich or too poor, she’s wanting me less and I’m wanting her more

The bitter taste is cumbersome

No Really This is Their Theme Song!

My daughter was so excited to share with me her new favorite song. We like some of the same music, but not all so I began by half-listening while I scanned through the mail. Then I heard the lyrics –

Not really sure how to feel about it

Something in the way you move

Makes me feel like I can’t live without you

It takes me all the way

I want you to stay

That’s Darcey and Vincent. I don’t know if I achieved it in the book, but that’s what I meant. Both are hit out of nowhere with the feelings they have for each other and it’s hard to come to terms with these new emotions.

Vincent’s line that gets me – “Darcey, I almost came to blows with your dad, had it out with my mother…honey, I just don’t have the energy to pretend that it’s only sex and I’m not in love with you. Not tonight. Not right now.”

I really plan to stop talking about this soon. I promise! ~Val

If They Had a Theme Song

So I should be polishing up the last few chapters of Déjà Vu, however I’ve been doing everything but that. But I’ve promised myself that after dinner is done and the dishes have been put away, the evening and late into the night belong to Darcey and Vincent.

In the background, I’ll be playing Ray Charles. For some reason his duets have been a mainstay with this project. And Crazy Love has become the theme song for this couple.

My favorite lines:

And when I’m returning from so far away
She gives me some sweet lovin’ brighten up my day
Yes it makes me righteous, yes it makes me feel whole
Yes it makes me mellow down in to my soul
