Three 20-something women trying to figure out what it means to be lay, Catholic, and modern all at once.

Love Songs

Here is some monday morning silliness. Because Mondays are hard. Also, because I have been thinking a lot about weddings since EDITH AND PETER ARE GETTING MARRIED IN ELEVEN DAYS!!!!! If I ever do get married, I would like very much to have "The More I See You" as my first dance. That is, if Mr. X likes it too...

The most well known recording these days is Michael Bublé's (and it is quite dance-worthy). But there are plenty of other recordings, some really stunning. And, though it isn't really danceable, for pure jazz sophistication, check out this stunning version by Sarah Vaughan.

Nat King Cole croons it well.

Frank Sinatra really rocks it.

Chet Bakers is a little whiny.

And Julie London's is sultry and entrancing.

The more I see you,
The more I want you.
Somehow this feeling
Just grows and grows.
With every sigh I become more mad about you,
More lost without you,
And so it goes.
Can you imagine
How much I'll love you
The more I see you
As years go by?
I know the only one for me can only be you.
My arms won't free you;
My heart won't try.
