Tuesday's Tunes

So....I missed Tuesday's Tunes last week.  I realized it Wednesday morning but, you know, it was too late.  Today, however, I'm tuned up and ready to share.    Leslyn's Lovely Life is where you link up so come on!  Pick & song & play along:)


Leslyn's Lovely Life


What is Tuesday's Tunes, you ask?  It's simple - just pick a tune and play it.  Simple huh?  It totally is.  If it has a video, put that bad boy up too.  Today's song is 'A Lover's Concerto' by The Toys.  There's a story behind this choice, of course.  About 8 years ago I was waiting tables at a pizza place and a lady had this song as her ring tone.  I had one of those deja vu moments and took me a while to remember that I'd been obsessed with this song when I was in like 4th grade.  I asked the lady what the song was but she couldn't remember so I sat on it for years, trying to remember what it was.

A few years later, my boyfriend was watching "Mr. Holland's Opus" while I was playing on the computer.  Mr. Holland plays Minuet In G Major (Although often attributed to Bach himself, the "Minuet in G major" is now believed to have been written by Christian Petzold.) but a girl in his class mistakes it for A Lover's Concerto, a song that came out in the time period the movie was set in.

BAM!  There it was, I FINALLY had the name of my song!  I remember being ecstatic...and completely freaking out my boyfriend, who had no idea why I was so excited about a snippet of a song played in a movie.

Ladies & Gentlemen, I give you....A Lover's Concerto ---
