Music of K: Keeping, Kissing, and Keeping again

Is "K" halfway through the alphabet? Are we close? Can anyone see the light at the end of this abc-tunnel? Crazy busy week over here in my part of the blogosphere. I have a big 10-mile race this weekend and friends coming in from out of town, which means I have to keep my head in the game AND mop my floors. I need more hours!

1. "Keep me in Your Heart" by Warren Zevon
This song is so sweet. The story goes that Warren Zevon wrote this for his daughter soon after he was diagnosed with cancer, which soon took his life. When I had to help coordinate the music for a funeral of someone in my family, I suggested this song. It still makes me think of them and smile.

2. "A Kiss to Build a Dream On" by Louis Armstrong
I love the sound of Louis Armstrong's voice. There's something about that 1930s/40s Parisian cafe jazz sound that makes me so happy. Add to that his crystal clear trumpet sound and this sound is magic to my ears. I'm not sure how I feel about this song being used for the Fallout movies, but it does a great job of capturing the feel of that time.

3. "Keep on Singing my Song" by Christina Aguilera
You ever have one of those days where you feel like you're questioning everything and second guessing all the choices you made that brought you to that very point? When I find myself here, I pull up this song. Old Christina is better than this weird new one on The Voice. When she needed to clear out her soul, she held nothing back.

Talk to me, Goose (name that movie!). What K tunes did I miss?


  1. About Louis Armstrong - is this a kissing song? But really, it makes me want to snag someone and waltz across the room.

    And Warren Zevon was my first concert ever, so I'm always glad to see him.

    "Sorry, Goose, but it's time to buzz a tower."

  2. There seems to be a lot of kissing going on today...

  3. I would've thrown in Kiss From a Rose by Seal.
    And you are going to kick ass (see what i did there) on your race this weekend!

  4. Wow, I've never heard that song from Christina Aguilera. She's awesome as always.

  5. Aw, love that Louis Armstrong song. So beautiful.

    And good luck at that race! Wow, ten MILES?!? You go!

  6. Good luck with the race! If I remember right, I think you did your first half marathon not too long ago. Ten miles is nothing by comparison!

  7. There are some new ones for me in this batch! I'd also add "Keep Us" by Peter Bradley Adams.

    *She's lost that loving feeling. ;)

  8. I love all three of your choices. For something completely different I offer "Rock and Roll all Nite" by Kiss.




I love getting comments. They're as much fun as getting real snail mail. So please, chime in and tell me what you think!
