My friend Catherine and I laugh often about our on-going soundtracks. Someone will say or do something that triggers a connection to a song, and immediately we start jamming out to the song. Depending up on the situation, it may remain in our jukebox brains or it could be belted at full capacity. (I really try not to belt out music in work meetings or when I’m getting my teeth cleaned.)
Along with my soundtrack, I’ve also had a few theme songs throughout my life, one being I Will Not Be Moved, another being I Will Survive by Gloria Gaynor when I was trying to recover from the heart crushing blow of losing my first love. (Come on girls sing with me…I. I will survive. As long as I know how to love I know I’ll stay alive.)
But this song, Holding Out For a Hero, is my long lasting love theme song. It stems both from my deep feelings (ack cough obsession ack cough cough) for one Mr. Clark Kent, and all his glorious and awkward nerdness, and the joy it creates belting out Bonnie Tyler songs. I should also note that I am also a big fan of the Avengers, so when I saw this Marvel version of Holding Out For a Hero, I simply said, “Yes. Exactly.”
PS. Don’t worry Clark, dah-ling, I swear my love for Captain America is simply my deep felt patriotism. And the Loki thing is most likely a phase. It should only last until Ragnarok is over (ack cough or it could last forever ack cough cough) I swear, my love, I just really enjoy Tom Hiddleston’s excellent portrayal of Loki.
