It’s the middle of the week in the middle of winter – the perfect time to take a romantic interlude. We’ve shared this song with you before, but it never fails to ignite a flame of passion in our hearts for each other. Gato Barbieri is an amazing saxophonist, and the following video set to the song, Europa, only adds to the romance.
But first a bit of background as to HOW we discovered this song. If I remember correctly, Tom and I were shopping for a new appliance at Sears years ago. Our children were still little, at home with a babysitter. There was a guy with a white shirt and tie following us everywhere we went. He had Tom engaged from the start as they were discussing – I have no idea what, which is why I had tuned them out.
One of the stereo systems was turned up and this song began to play. I felt like I was in one of those slow motion scenes in a meadow where the man and woman slowly run towards each other – hair flowing, arms outstretched. <pop> you get the picture! Anyway, I suddenly had the urge to go home! Who cares about new appliances when there is romance in the air – and in Sears no less! Yes, it was definitely a Bella Notte and one I will never forget. Listen for yourself and see if it has the same effect. Although, you may want to hold off listening until you and your spouse are together, your children are occupied, just in case you have a sudden urge for a romantic interlude in the privacy of your bedroom!
Do you have a song that stirs the passion in your hearts for one another?
Budget Warning: You may find yourself making reservations to escape to the nearest island to be soothed by the warm, gentle breezes. If you can’t, at least enjoy this 5 minute break!
