Thursday Scores: Once Upon A Time...Storybook Love


This week, we have a special score, from a film that has, in one way or another, rose above it's poor release in theaters and is considered a pinnacle in fantasy romance. Since I was raised by a few sisters, you can guess how many times I saw this as a kid. At the same time, it had so much cool guy stuff that I didn't mind the "kissing" parts.

Once Upon A Time...Storybook Love: by Mark Knopfler
From the film: The Princess Bride


She's not a blogger, but I can't see myself tagging this score on anyone else but my wife. If there is any score that matches her personality and sheer awesomeness, it's this one. She is, truly, a walking storybook, and I am amazed to be a part of her story.

*clears throat*

Okay, guys. I'm off to LTUE! If you're coming, I'll see you there. Just don't eat too much chocolate today ... Save some for me, okay?

I'm David, and I knew I should have pre-ordered those flowers!

    I remember watching The Princess Bride more than a few times when I was younger, and your song sounds comfortingly familiar.
