I can't even handle Ed Sheeran's new song.
Have you heard it?
It's called "Thinking Out Loud" and I tell you what....
When I hear it, it makes me think out loud that I want to be "making out" with my husband while I listen to it.
This always gets awkward because Jackson is in the backseat, and then he wants to know what "making out" is.
I need to stop thinking out loud.
Reader: Stop it. You are kidding right?
Ok. I am not actually "thinking out loud", cause that would just be weird with my kid in the back seat, but let me tell you, I sure am thinking about it.
Reader: Sarah. Just stop right there. You have gone far enough in this conversation. I do not want to know what you are thinking about when you listen to romantic music.
My family reads these blog posts.
I will give no more details.
But I tell you what.
I don't only think about my husband when I hear it.
I think about you too.
Reader: That is just wrong.
Oh Reader. There you go again. Getting all weird on me.
I think about you because I want everyone to hear this song!
I think, "Self. You need to write a blog post on this song. It is that good. You need to make sure that 'Reader' hears this song. You should write a list of the top ten songs to get "jiggy wit it."
Reader: Did you just say "jiggy wit it?"
Reader: Did you make a list like you told yourself to?
Reader: Are you going to share it?
1. 'Let's Get It On' by Marvin Gaye
(It can be awkward at first. This song states your purpose. Yes. Let's get it on. No one is confused. Everyone knows what's about to go down.)
2. 'By My Side' by Ben Harper
( "By my side. By my side. Won't you be by my side?" Yes. Yes I will. Now, let's do this.)
3. 'Thinking Out Loud' by Ed Sheeran
(Cause Hello. Just listen to it!)
4. 'Your Body Is A Wonderland' by John Mayer
(I know. It's cheesy, but let's think about this. You might need some encouragement at this point in this awesome song mix. It might up your game if you hear John Mayer telling you that your body is a wonderland..I would personally appreciate it.)
5. 'Better Together' by Jackson Johnson
(I mean duh. It's claiming that things are better when you guys are together. That's just nice and encouraging! Thanks Jack! We are better together!)
6. 'Till Kingdom Come' by Coldplay
(My goodness gracious I love this song. It is so romantic. This was on my wedding video. I used to make John play it all the time. Over and over and over again.)
(Also, let's all be honest right now. Not many would get passed song six. If we average 2 minutes and 30 seconds a song, then we have just hit about 15 minutes. Ok, so no one would get passed song 5, but I will continue making this list because I promised 10 songs.)
7. 'I've Got This Friend" by The Civil Wars
(Sure. They broke up. But you won't with this sweet and harmonizing song.)
8. 'Sexual Healing' by Marvin Gaye
(The beginning of the song says, "Get up Get up Get up Wake up Wake up Wake up" This seems appropriate. By now, you have fallen asleep. Marvin is just telling you to get up and go do the dishes because they aren't going to clean themselves. Plus, pretty soon, you have to go pick your kids up at the baby sitter, and if they aren't at the baby sitter, they are going to wake up crying at any second.)
9. 'All Night Long' by Lionel Richie
(You and your husband can listen to this song as you do the dishes and laugh at Lionel Richie for pretending that he could go all night long. Oh silly Lionel. You jokester you.)
10. 'Can't Get Enough Of Your Love Baby' by Barry White
(This is just fun to lip sing to. Get your hairbrushes, put on a lip singing show, and have some fun together while you make the bed.)
(I just sat here and did a nice little lip singing performance of this song while I worked on this post. It's just a good one.)
Reader: Sarah. Is this a joke?
You are welcome.
