day 19 – a song from your favorite album

My favorite album of the past 10 years – which is still protecting its title – is Maroon 5’s “Songs About Jane.”

I was given the CD (remember those?) randomly. One night in college I was riding around in Jason’s truck and noticed he had it. And apparently, he didn’t think to much of it so rather than burning me a copy of his already burnt copy, he just gave it to me.

Background on me and M5: I’m pretty sure I discovered them. Or at least loved them before anyone else. I heard “Harder to Breathe” on 102.3 and hunted it down on Limewire (remember that?), downloading it and another few songs from the album.

Since I’ve owned the CD it’s been played too many times to count, so many that it has scratches on the back of the disc and I had to download the songs legally off iTunes.

No worries though. I wanted to. Because if you’ve never heard that album, you’re missing out. There’s not a single song on there I’ll skip through – and I can count on one hand the number of CDs I feel that way about.

My absolute favorite song – that may also never be replaced – from the album is called “Sunday Morning.”

I’ll let you watch the video and decide for yourself, but I love it.

It’s the kind of song you want to listen to on a Sunday morning (see what I did there?) when it’s raining outside and your bed is comfy and you just wanna snuggle and nap and not go anywhere or do anything. Oh and when you’re in love. Because love is always nice to hear about.

    Definitely one of my favorite songs of all time. It’s the kind of song you put on when you need to step away from something and relax for a minute.
