The Weepies

A few years back (maybe 4?) B & I were wandering thru a Tower Records on a gloomy day. I was feeling rather weepy for no apparent reason when B picked up a CD and laughingly handed it to me.

We had never heard of the band but he bought it anyway.

We ended up loving the CD, especially me and now when I listen to it I think of that time. I think of my little one bedroom apartment in North Hollywood. I think of the late night runs to the local diner. I think of a night that we lost power and lit candles and listened to this album. It brings back sweet memories.

Actually thinking back it wasn't as mellow and romantic as it sounds.

Did I ever mention I'm afraid of the dark? I had been moving furniture at the time the power went out and a mattress was blocking the door. B was in the kitchen making dinner. I yelled for him to come get me... all squished between the furniture. He was laughing.

Me: Aaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhh! I can't see! It's so dark! I'm blocked in! Aaaaaahhhhh!
B: Uh, it's ok, I'm right here ~chuckle~ I'

(Did I mention it was a tiny 650 square foot apartment?)

Me: But it's dark! Do we have a lighter?! Matches?! I have candles and no fire!
Me: The mattress, I can't ~breathes heavily~ it's blocking me in! Where are you?!
Me: Its! so! dark!!!!

B: Follow the light of my watch ~chuckle~

Eventually I made it out and once we ran to the store to get more candles it was kinda fun.

There's my random memory for today.

Don't let my spaziness detract from this adorable husband and wife team.

No amount of coffee
No amount of crying
No amount of whiskey
No amount of wine
No, no, no, no, no
Nothing else will do
I've gotta have you, I've gotta have you

  1. I love memories like that....

    (not the getting stuck part, but the good parts)

  2. I love this post Dandy. Music brings me back to that exact moment. It's so weird. I bought a cd when we were in Hawaii and we listened to it as we drove around with the top down on our jeep...wind whipping through our cares in the world. When I put it in for the first time back home I cried. My honey thought I was nutty, but it was almost painful. Weird I know.

    That weepie band is a great title for them. It's definitely moody music. So nice to know other people get weepy for no reason at all too!

  3. I love random music. I love anything random though... like movies when the narrator voices over the scene with internal random thoughts. I LOVE that!!

    Have a great weekend girl!

  4. No wonder you were laughing when I suggested- Can't Go Back Now for your baby Ipod! Stumbling on fun music is my favorite!

  5. Fabulous... and I would have spazzed out too.

  6. I absolutely LOVE the Weepies! I rarely hear of anyone else who even knows about them. Gotta Have You is one of my favorite songs :)

  7. Dawn,

    Please stop by my blog today for another Urgent Prayer request, this time its for my family.

    Love and Hugs ~ Kat

  8. Hehehe, the mattress story gave me a good laugh. I love B's chuckling throughout! It reminds me of how scared I get when Jay and I go up the stairs to bed at night. All the lights are off and I can't stand him coming up the stairs behind me. I get SO CREEPED OUT!! Sometimes I lose control of myself and scream, whipping around like he might grab me. He just laughs and says, "but you know it's me, how can you be scared?!" Hahaha, we just can't be explained. :o)

  9. :) I'm not afraid of the dark per se but of what might jump out of the dark at me. I have brothers and they tortured me.

    Hope you have a safe and happy Memorial Day weekend!

  10. Just popping in to say Hi. Music and food can be powerful for memories. I am holding my newborn and enjoying her warmth and soft breaths... Now if there was a way to record that, it's pure bliss!

  11. You are so funny! Just wait until pregnancy brain sets in. LOL!

  12. I love that song--Gotta Have You! I heard the band for the first time through Pandora radio, actually, and this was the first song I heard. At first, I wasn't sure about it, but I grew to like it. I think the lead singer really has a very unique voice.

  13. Thanks for the link to my video (I made the one with "Painting by Chagall.")

    Cheers, and congratulations on your little one. :)
