Thursday Tune & Movie Time

I was super lonely on Tuesday evening so I did what any sad,lonely Army wife does while her husband is deployed. I picked out two really sappy, girly love story movies to watch & I poured a glass of wine,put on my head phones & tuned out the boys TV shows. I watched my movies snuggled  under my husband's blanket while sitting in his chair on my laptop incase he got on-line of course. I did make the boys some frozen pizza for dinner so they weren't totally neglected or anything- I mean they love that stuff! 

I picked Anne Hathaway & Jake Gyllenhaal in Love & Other Drugs to watch first. I mean I needed a little "eye candy" on screen as well as a good love story. YAY for Jake! Second came  Hillary Swank & Gerard  Butler in PS I love You,ahhhh more yumminess to watch on screen! Not to mention they both played two good songs during the movies that I love & I decided would be my music picks for Thursday's Song Link up with Amber over at Goodnight Moon.

 Love & Other Drugs The song from this movie is by Billy Bragg- a little Irish jig that I can't get out of my head now called Way over Yonder in the Minor Key. It's super catchy & I have been singing all day !

Then of course after watching PS I love you  with all it's great songs I had one stuck in my head. In the movie it's sung by  Gerard Butler with an Irish accent- but it's actually an American song. Steve Earle's  Galway Girl- great song!

So there you have it, two song picks that I fell in love with again this week. I have listened to them both non stop! Missing my soldier & watching sappy love stories makes me feel a little better, especially when they have good music on their soundtracks! Now you head on over to Goodnight Moon to listen to some more great songs or link up one of your own!

I love, love, LOVE P.S I love you. I have the soundtrack on my iTunes.

Love both songs, and there's nothing like a sappy chick flick to get you through a hard day!
