I think you should listen to John Waite’s Missing You today

So many things have been running through my head lately, and I’ve been trying to organize them into a logical, readable post, but somehow, my brain is not cooperating. So maybe let’s keep with the music recommendations, and soon you, my dear reader (one of eight, hello!) will have a playlist to keep on loop.

I watched the movie Warm Bodies the other day. The premise is simple, the guy’s a zombie, the girl, a human. It could’ve made for a very strange, sappy film, but the really witty writing and sort of adorable (make that very) lead Nicholas Hoult in his red hoodie and gray shirt made it one of the funniest films I’ve seen in a while.

I digress. This is supposed to be about John Waite’s Missing You. It’s an oldie but a goodie, and is always good value. It makes an appearance on the film twice, when R (Nicholas Hoult’s zombie) plays it on his record player, and the next, when he sees the female lead for the first time.

And really, how can you resist lyrics like these:

And there’s a storm that’s raging
Through my frozen heart tonight

I hear your name, in certain circles
And it always makes me smile
I spend my time,thinking about you
And it’s almost driving me wild
And there’s a heart that’s breaking
Down this long distance line tonight

Listen to this cheesefest here and tell me what you think.


A realistic optimist just trying to find her way.
