When I was pregnant, I continually listened to Michael Buble's Just haven't met you yet. I found this song before it hit us here in Australia – downloaded it and stuck it on my iPod playlist that I would play to my tummy. Not all of the song is appropriate for pregnancy. In fact, I've since realized that most of it is more appropriate for those who have had multiple miscarriages – "…broken my heart so many times I've stopped keeping track…" "…I might have to wait, I'll never give up, I guess it's half timing and the other half's luck…"
|Don't cry like this. It's depressing. And makes you ugly.|
Now for the funny side. Surely you've heard the song Oh what a night. You know, "Oh what a night, late December back in '63…"? Weeeell… I listen to that song, and I've never seen it as about sex (which is what it's supposedly about!) It's obviously about a pregnant woman giving birth, from the perspective of the baby being born. Think about it. "You know I didn't even know her name, but I was never gonna be the same…" "Spinning my head around and taking my body under" "Why'd it take so long to see the light?" Obviously about pregnancy and childbirth!
PS - Just discovered I can write my blogs and publish them from Microsoft Word - so if ever inspiration strikes and I don't have internet connection, I can still write, format, etc! Woo hoo!
