Romance, flirting, mad passion,
melancholy regret and bitter heartbreak…
Find songs that share every nuance of love
from male and female points of view,
on this sweet musical blog hop!

Music is a strong theme in Random Magic -- so strong,
in fact, that one of the celestial characters
Winnie and Henry meet is Efterpe, the Muse of music.

Love is another strong theme in the book, and so in honor of Valentine’s Day,
here’s a fun blog hop to check out, featuring songs about love.

For each stop, you’ll be able to listen to two love songs – one love
song written by (or interpreted by) a man, and one by a woman, to be
fair and give the fellows equal time to wax lyrical or poetic or
happy-go-lucky or broken-hearted or philosophical, and so on…

before playing mid-left sidebar)

The Haunting (Somewhere In Time) - Kamelot feat. Simone Simons

He said:
Somewhere in time
I will find you and haunt you again
Like the wind sweeps the earth

Song’s commentary on love: Some people believe in reincarnation or
that love can transcend death. Or: Lost loves can be the most memorable.

Lyrics: Song text
Lyrics: Video format

Tabakiera - Kayah feat. Goran Bregović (Music)

She said:
Tuesday has departed somewhere
Behind the window's Thursday morning
Everything is like before
Though nothing is the same

Song’s commentary on love: Everyday objects can take on extraordinary
significance, if they’re connected to a memory. Or: Inner worlds are
as important as exterior worlds (emotions vs. tangible objects), and
quite often they collide.

Random Magic quote:

A woman in white materialized out of the shadows of the far wall,
walked across the bar and put her arm through his. The three rings on
her left hand sparkled.
“Oui, allons-y,” she said sadly, her
voice as gentle as her eyes. “Time to say goodbye.”
Tears welled up in her bright-dark eyes, and her white dress
shimmered, changing to grey, then a vivid shade of blue so dark it was
almost black.

Happy Valentine's Day!


Thank you for visiting and taking the time to comment. It means so much.

I apologize for word verification, but as soon as I changed the settings from only users with Google accounts, I started receiving a ton of spam comments...within one hour of changing the settings. The bots are on high alert apparently.

  1. A very Happy Valentine's Day to you too!

  2. I love The Haunting ! I am listening to it again!
    Happy Valentines Day!

  3. I haven't heard either of these interesting songs. My favorite love song would be Just the Way You Are by Billy Joel.

  4. great picks! tabakiera really got me!

  5. As a break up song, which is what I'm on to since I'm listing a different love song on each Hop blog, I like Linger by The Cranberries. I've always liked the sound of it.
    Great post!

  6. Great Post..this is so much fun discovering new music! My favorite love song would be "Hey There Delilah" by the Plain White T's!:D
    Happy V-day to you too!
