BRINGING YOU THE BEST IN ROMANCE FICTION
What is the most romantic music in the world?
Yeah, this is subjective totally, but there are some songs that universally pull at the heartstrings. The wedding march, the graduation song, or the New Year’s song, “Auld Lang Syne.”
For me, romantic songs come from such a wide array of genres. I could give you a list of Heavy Metal, Rap, R&B, Pop, and even Country if pressed. However, the most romantic genre I can tell you for sure is Jazz.
Growing up in an era of New Kids on the Block, Salt-N-Pepa, and Hammer, my high school days were offset by my complete adoration of Louis Armstrong, Ella Fitzgerald, and “Old Blue Eyes” himself, Frank Sinatra. While kids my age were learning the newest dance moves and dressing in baggy pants, I was learning to scat and adoring 1940’s hairstyles. My dream was to be a Jazz singer. With songs like “Lover Come Back to Me,” “Cest Si Bon,” and “Fly Me to the Moon,” I was transported into a world where true love still conquered all. I believed the words, which like a great romance novel, would fill my heart with hope of a love that never died.
Jazz is unique in its story telling and it’s a style I will never get tired of. It’s also what I listen to most of the time when I’m writing.
