All you need is romcoms.

So after being single for-ever one starts getting cynical about it. (See what I did there?) But honestly, that’s not a surprise since us stupid human beings have manage to be cynical about almost everything in life that kinda upsets us but we try hard not to let it show, so naturally we start being mean, acting cold and usually talking in an elaborated almost pretentious way instead. #sorrynotsorry

Still, single and all as I am, romantic comedies are my favorite kind of comedies, kind of movies in general actually… No matter how cheesy, predictable, unoriginal or commercial they can be I truly believe they are one of those few still reliable things on earth. From a romcom at least you know what to expect and then also you can expect that every romcom will fulfill your expectations, agree? Even if you’re just expecting it to be super-dork and unreal, you’ll be happy to know that no matter how much terribly-dramatic scenes you watch along, things will go smoothly in the end.

*Except for those painful romcoms as “Me before you”… Gosh, I felt so betrayed when I saw that emotional-ambush! The end got me in tears and not the usual happiness-I wish it was me-tears but the awful P.S. I love you-why are you doing this to me-tears 😦

Yet again: sarcasm. That’s what I need at this exact point of my life. Witty jokes and sharp quotes.

I’m a hopeless romantic and a Valentine’s Grinch at the same time

Yesterday I almost watched “In my dreams” but oh Lord after 2 minutes of watching its stupidly-perfect main characters, I had enough. Both were so sweet and proper! I-couldn’t stand them. As contradictory as this may sound I’m a hopeless romantic and a Valentine’s Grinch at the same time, so what I needed was a pair of characters so wrecked and lost that hopefully wouldn’t make me feel worse about myself.

And luckily enough, I found them!

In a different movie though… (next friday I’ll post about it)

Anyway, as much as I enjoy laughing at catchy lines and sighing at cheesy gestures, deeply inside I know that’s not the main reason why I watch romcoms… I guess there’s nobody who can deny that what we feel when we end up watching a romcom is: hope. Silly, childish, unfounded hope but that still works up your mood and makes you feel blindly positive. You know, like anything could happen and that it could actually happen to you with whom you never ever imagined and when you least expect it!

But also nothing-at-all could happen too because that’s in fact what you least, least expect after watching a romcom. Thereby after some time by your own you might realize that romcoms are just another exageration of life and love, of soulmates, destiny and good luck… and since nothing “romantic” happens to you in a while you’ll need to get back to romcoms to get the perfect substitude of love, your dose of hope; because just like when you are on a diet and you start feeling upset for not being allowed to consume sugar, you have to remember there’s always Splenda to sweeten your life!

And besides The Beatles explained it better:

All you need is love.

44* I’ve just seen a face

A big deal. I could even say this was -the best band- ever.

“The Beatles”

English band from Liverpool. Started playing in 1960. Their music style is versatile and timeless.

Members: John Lennon, Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr and George Harrison (!)

 

 

Even though the band only lasted 10 years they created a sociocultural change, they won 10 Grammy Awards and released 12 albums.

 

Here a music video  (with lyrics in spanish on it) of this song.

 

For some reason when we like something we kinda murmur “mmm” and when you do it in a song it gives you -and points out- a feeling of joy beyond description.

 

This song is about the very first moment when someone interesting catches your eye. No matter if it was a second sometimes that person is hard to forget specially when we truly believe that she/he is perfect for us.

 

+Based on the second verse of the song do you think this song was written by a dreamer or a realist?

 

Anyhow this song express perfectly what “falling in love” is. The simple optimism you feel when you meet someone special and you actually don’t need more words to describe it than this few verses in a song.

…And the legendary lyrics (english/spanish) :

I’ve just seen a face,
I can’t forget the time or place where we just met.
She’s just the girl for me and want all the world to see we’ve met

Had it been another day
I might have looked the other way
a
nd I’d have never been aware
but as it is I’ll dream of her tonight

Falling, yes I am falling, and she keeps calling me back again.

I have never known the like of this
I’ve been alone and I have missed things
And kept out of sight but other girls were never quite like this
