Darn right I like Faith Hill! I like country music. She makes great music. So it should be no surprise that I was jamming to one of her older songs. And it was just the thing I needed to perk myself up since today I’ve been in pretty much of a deep spiraling funk.
“This Kiss” is so upbeat and peppy and happy and full of love, it’s impossible to stay depressed after hearing it. If you find a way, then I have nothing to tell you. It worked wonders for me. With my Ipod on random, I wasn’t expecting to hear it at all. It took me til my first listen through it that I was singing along with it. I was totally unaware of it, so busy doing what I was doing. Put it on repeat after that.
Sure it’s a song that I can’t relate to in any form. I really wish I could. It doesn’t detract from the greatness of the song. My first kiss came to me when I was in 8th grade. Needless to say I remember it as one of the most awkward and mortifying moments in my life that I look back on. It’s a memory that kind of sadly affects me now. After that of course there was more kissing and more boys/men. That feeling of awkwardness never left me. As a result I see myself as a terrible one. It’s pretty ego crushing.
This song I can at least pretend that kissing is an awesome, not a horrible stomach turning experience. I hear songs and I read books about it and I feel happy little butterflies in my stomach from those. I’m pretty sure how I would feel if I was either, A: Good at it, B: didn’t really think about it so bad or C: Cared about the person I was engaged in it with. I’m pretty sure, but can’t say for sure. At the rate I’m going I may never know. Oh well. That’s another crisis for another day.
