Listen and Learn Music: Birthday Boy

Birthday Boy


Somebody is turning 27 around here, and it's not me!  My husband, Zach, who is a whopping five months older than me, will be celebrating his birthday tomorrow, and the rest of the family and I will be there right along with him.

Although Zach and I have only been married for a year and a half, I've been by his side for six birthdays.  He takes the cake for giving the best gifts (birthday, Christmas, or otherwise) but I always tell him that I'm much easier to buy for than he is!  One of the best gifts he's ever given me (and there are lots from which to choose) was actually for our wedding, when we we were planning the playlist for the souvenir CD that would be given out to all 250+ guests. 

We had already decided that the song I wrote for him on Valentine's Day, Second Chance Dance, would be included, but what I really wanted was to record a song together for the CD.  After lots and lots of coaxing, he finally caved in.  We reworked the lyrics to the song "Anyone Else But You" (the one Ellen Page and Michael Cera sing at the end of the movie Juno).  Zach isn't a singer, or musical in any way aside from enjoying it, so I was pretty darn proud of the job he did on this song.  Needless to say, his friends and family were more than surprised when they heard it played during the picture slideshow my parents put together for our rehearsal dinner!

I will always treasure this recording, because it's most likely the only one I'll ever have of its kind. I couldn't be luckier to have such a wonderful, funny, supportive husband - he calls himself my #1 fan, though my mom begs to differ - and I hope his 27th year is his best yet!
