What do I have to do to make you watch/listen to this?

Holy haunting brilliance of gorgeous love, this is the best song I’ve heard all day.

It’s a damn great video, too.

And if I could force it in front of you and say, “Listen to it and love it too,” I would.

I present it as an offering … should you choose to listen and like it, or hate it, that’s your right as the deity or diva that you are.

The artist is Birdy and the song is called, “Skinny Love,” which I think, but not sure, is a cover.

Oh, and Birdy was born in 1996. That makes her too young to be this great.

Regrets of the Typical American

Surprise, surprise … Americans regret decisions they’ve made regarding romance.

Here’s a link to a study about Americans’ regrets. You might want to check it out.

A snippet:

Key findings from the study include:

  • About 44 percent of women reported romance regrets versus 19 percent of men. Women also had more family regrets than men. About 34 percent of men reported having work-oriented regrets versus 27 percent of women reporting similar regrets. Men also had more education regrets than women.
  • Individuals who were not currently in a relationship were most likely to have romance regrets.
  • People were evenly divided on regrets of situations that they acted on versus those that they did not act on. People who regretted events that they did not act on tended to hold on longer to that regret over time.
  • Individuals with low levels of education were likely to regret their lack of education. Americans with high levels of education had the most career-related regrets.
