Pachelbel and Hugh Jackman

30 Day Music Challenge, Day 6: A Song That Reminds Me Of Somewhere
     This was one of the hardest to come up with. I've lived a lot of places but I haven't travelled all that much. I hear songs that make me think of tropical locations I've never been to, or songs that make me think of Italy or France or Ireland. (I have been to France but there wasn't a song I could associate with that trip.)
     I decided on a song that makes me think of the two years I lived in Hartford, Connecticut. I did grade 11 and 12 there. It was an interesting time for me, for a lot of reasons. I spent a lot of time playing this particular song on the piano. Hearing this song conjures up images of the living room where the piano was, and missionaries.

     And completely unrelated, and so the opposite of a relaxing classical song, I saw the movie Real Steel last night. I went in not expecting much and was surprised by how good it was. Seriously. I even got teary-eyed at the end (although that's not saying much since I get weepy in a lot of movies). So, obviously, my Crush of the Week is going to be Hugh Jackman. He's a great actor. He can be tough, sensitive, serious, AND he can sing and dance. Major bonus points for that. Love you Hugh.


  1. Hugh Jackman is a great actor! He has talent and that face doesn't hurt either. ;)

  2. He is so dang sexy AND talented. He is the "eye candy" on my blog this month! lol. I really want to go see that show. Not because I think it looks totally awesome, but because I think it has potential and because it has Hugh. Now that I know you liked it - I won't put it off! Thanks for sharing.

  3. Hearing Pachelbel Cannon always reminds me of weddings. You must be pretty good at the piano if you can play it.

  4. Oooh my god Hugh Jackman. He had one line and .5 seconds of screen time in X-Men: First Class, and he was still my favorite in that movie.

  5. Yeah- he was hilarious in X-Men: First Class. Just the one line but so funny.
    And the movie was good, I'd recommend it to anyone.
