Okay, so I missed a day of "today I love." It was bound to happen at some point. But I didn't miss today. Today I love...

The Morning Benders' cover of "Lovefool" by the Cardigans.

Yesterday I shared a BAD cover, so I thought I'd share a GOOD one today.

Bur first, confession time: I had a gigantic crush on Leo during the Romeo + Juliet/ Titanic days.
I was pretty much obsessed with Romeo + Juliet... I had a gigantic poster on my closet door (and maybe a few over my bed). I watched it obsessively. I wanted nothing more than to be Claire Danes in that angel costume.
And of course, I had (and LOVED) the soundtrack.
I'm pretty sure it was in the first 5 CD's I ever owned. And I'm pretty sure it's still one of my top 10 favorite albums of all time. I still listen to it every now and then. It's that good. And if you've only ever heard one song from the soundtrack it was "Lovefool" by the Cardigans. I mean, it's a 90's classic. Well, I recently heard a cover by The Morning Benders and fell in love with the song all over again. (I even put it on my Sweethearts on Parade VDay playlist). Here's the original and the cover.

The Cardigans' original from 1996:

The Morning Benders' cover:

Tonight we're headed to Atlanta. Chris' Dad is having pretty major back surgery and we're going to be there for a few days. I'll try to post when I can.
Happy hump-day.

I was totally obsessed with Romeo & Juliet AND the soundtrack, too! And I still think that soundtrack is one of the best ever.

Now I want to watch it...and hear it...

I'm pretty certain that movie/soundtrack was an integral part of growing up in our generation. I actually listened to the whole soundtrack while working on this post. SO GOOD, even 14 years later. Can you believe it's been that long!?
