Love Themes/ A Clue to My Blogging from A to Z Theme

What are your plans for Valentine's Day? My husband and I are going to stay in this year and watch Gossip Girl after the kids go to bed.

I have a Valentine's Day gift for you all... here are some of my favorite music scores associated with love. Maybe you can try listening to them while you write. Do any of these tunes sound familiar to you? 

These musical choices also hint at the the theme for my Blogging from A to Z posts come April. Any guesses? (No, I won't be posting love songs all month long. Please.)

Enjoy!

From Cirque du Soleil's O: Jeux d'Eau, Composer: Benoit Jutras

From Cirque du Soleil's Ka: Love Dance, Composer: Rene Dupere 

From Frankenstein: Please Wait, Composer: Patrick Doyle



From Downton Abbey: Nothing to Forgive, Composer: John Lunn

From Love Actually: Portugese Love Theme, Composer: Craig Armstrong

Looks like your A to Z is going to be great.
Will wait in anticipation.

LUV "Downton Abbey"! (I knew you were cool!)
I am starting to get cold feet about A-Z. I think it will run my life and kill my current tango with my WIP. Any advice?
Thanks for visiting Cupid's Literary Connection and for commenting, Cynthia. Very sporting of you. I left you an answer to your question there, and took the liberty of posting a few more lines from my MS in doing so. I thought it might have been a bit cheeky to do such a thing--but I was emboldened by Agnes.

Nice line up. Can't wait to see what you're planning for April!

Mina Burrows said...

I'm still undecided about my A-Z topic. I've narrowed it down to two topics though.
Thanks for the tunes! Loved that. And what a date you have planned, huh? I'm not sure what I'll do yet.

April should make for fun blog reading. Nice assortment of music!

Wife and I celebrated our one year of parenting and pre-V-Day date at Flemings in Palo Alto. Really enjoyed their prime rib special on Sundays.

Glad you're able to spend quality time with the husband! Date nights are important :)

Sherry Ellis said...

Love Actually is such a beautiful piece of music!

We actually downplay V-day a lot. At the most we order Chinese. We'll probably just spend the day as normal. But as normal with my hubby is still pretty darn good I'm happy.

Medeia Sharif said...

Happy Valentine's Day and thanks for the lovely tunes.

Staying in is the best way to celebrate Valentine's Day, at least in my opinion. I'm just not one for waiting forever in a crowded restaurant and then the poor servers are stressed, I'd rather go out with my hubby when things are calmed down. Enjoy!

Hi there and P.S.
I nominated you for an award over at the Nut-tree...

We stayed home with our daughters and watched The Princess Bride and ate heart shaped pancakes with chocolate chips:-) We'll go out this weekend when it's a little more calm! Happy Valentine's Day!!

Cynthia said...

Yvonne: I hope so.

Jill: Just hang in there with A to Z. It helps to keep the posts short.

T. Drecker: Thanks!

Mina: I hope you had a good day, whatever you ended up doing.

Julie: April will definitely be exciting.

Mike: Maybe we'll try that restaurant sometime in the future.

Sherry: It is beautiful, isn't it.

Sara: Ordering take-out sounds nice.

Medeia: You're welcome, and same to you!

Elsie: I hope you have a great post-Valentine's Day then!

Jill: Thanks!

Jamie: I'd like to learn how to make heart-shaped pancakes...and with chocolate chips too...yum!

Those are some great themes you picked. I love Downton Abbey's score. :-)

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Will you be doing movie scores for the Challenge? That would be cool.

Nicole said...

I'm a fan of the Love Actually soundtrack, and Last of the Mohicans has some pretty awesome songs too. Can't wait to see more for A to Z.
