Every Little Thing She Does Is Magic by The Police really is our song. Mr. R. has always been a bigger Police fan than I am but I do love this song. We actually saw them play down at Dolphin Stadium (or whatever they’re calling it these days) a few year ago. There’s something really cool about 44,000 people all singing, “Rooooox-anne!”
We almost had a different song, though. Once upon a time we went to Universal Studios in Orlando during their Mardi Gras celebration. Each weekend a different performer appears and it happened that Bonnie Raitt was there that night. We weren’t all that excited about seeing her and had pretty much planned on leaving before the concert. It turned out that we were still at the park and we figured, Why not?
Suffice it to say, we were blown away. She was absolutely amazing. We stood mere yards from the stage, Mr. R.’s arms wrapped around me, as she sang I Can’t Make You Love Me. It was the most beautiful thing I’d ever heard. That being said, it’s not much of an Our Song kind of song.
This song, however, is my favorite Police song, for obvious reasons. Happy Saturday Night!
