April Love

.

I'm a movie freak...or should I say I'm a person that has watched a lot of movies, and retained the memories of their stories, music, actor's lines, locations, etc.....

Two such movies had songs that have stayed with me for many, many years.

Every Spring, during the month of April, I find myself remembering those two songs and I usually end up singing them...at the top of my lungs, while I drive to work...which must look funny to anyone looking at me, as they drive by..!

The first is from the movie, "April Love."

It's a syrupy-type of movie, that has a "message" attached to it...live right...work hard...and life will be good. But the words to the title song have stayed with me throughout my life (It's certainly NOT because Pat Boone sang it..!).

April love is for the very young
Every star's a wishing star that shines for you
April love is all the seven wonders
One little kiss can tell you this is true

Sometimes an April day will suddenly bring showers
Rain to grow the flowers for her first bouquet
But April love can slip right through your fingers
So if she's the one don't let her run away

[Instrumental Interlude]

Sometimes an April day will suddenly bring showers
Rain to grow the flowers for her first bouquet
But April love can slip right through your fingers
So if she's the one don't let her run away


Next week is our wedding Anniversary...3 years.

I guess this syrupy song just makes me all warm & fuzzy whenever I sing it and think of how happy I am with my wife. That, and the fact that April is the month that we got married.

The other song is from the movie, "The Jolson Story." It's just something that has also stuck in my mind for a very long time...not because it's syrupy or any kind of a love song...but because it holds a message in it...a message that mirrors my way of inner-thinking about life.

April Showers

Life is not a highway strewn with flowers,
Still it holds a goodly share of bliss,
When the sun gives way to April showers,
Here is the point you should never miss.

Though April showers may come your way,
They bring the flowers that bloom in May.
So if it's raining, have no regrets,
Because it isn't raining rain, you know, it's raining violets,
And where you see clouds upon the hills,
You soon will see crowds of daffodils,
So keep on looking for a blue bird, And list'ning for his song,
Whenever April showers come along.

And where you see clouds upon the hills,
You soon will see crowds of daffodils,
So keep on looking for a blue bird, And list'ning for his song,
Whenever April showers come along.


The positive outlook of this song always reminds me that when things may not seem too good...or the events of life have gotten me to where I feel I've hit rock-bottom...life has also taught me that it's going to get better...and with my wife, my life has gotten to be the best it's ever been...and it keeps on getting BETTER..!

There's NOTHING even close to the realization that we have each other...we love each other...we're best friends to each other...we openly talk about anything and everything...and when we make love...it's the best, each and every time.

I could never have imagined how happy I am with her...and our life together.

So, if you're ever driving in Connecticut...during the month of April, and you see a guy driving in his car...singing out loud...at the top of his lungs (the windows WILL be up..!)...it could be me.
