Vienna

“Vienna” by Billy Joel is one of my favorite songs of all time and lately, as I write A Pocketful of Poppies, I imagine it being a theme song of sorts for Poppy Sheppard. I found this video on YouTube of the vinyl playing, which is perfect because I prefer vinyl, so please listen below and let me know what you think. Do you have any song suggestions for Justin or perhaps a song suggestion for the couple? Just leave me a comment. You know I love getting music suggestions.

I hope everyone has had a fantastic Monday and I just want to thank everyone for the warm responses I have been getting for A Pocketful of Poppies and When Night is Almost Done. I hope you all know just how amazing you are and how much I appreciate and adore every single one of you.

Hey Kate!

I hope you had a fantastic Monday. It's almost Tuesday here. I didn't have to work that hard today so it was all good. I really love this song by Billy Joel. The lyrics are very meaningful to me. I use to think it was my song, but I'll share it with Poppy, haha. As of right now I can't think of any songs but when I do I'll post again.

I like that picture of Turkish. Blue and green is my favorite colors.

I appreciate and adore you as well:)

Love that song! So perfect for Poppy... :D

Not sure if this genre of music is quite your cup of tea, but I've thought of Poppy & Justin the last few times I've heard this song. It's called "Whatever It Takes" by Lifehouse. It's kind of alternative rock, but it's still a really cool song and the lyrics are really fitting in my opinion. Check it out if you want. :)

Great song for Poppy!

You may not have heard of or like this song, but I think Nature's Law by a British band called Embrace would be perfect for Justin and Poppy.

Here's the lyrics, and also try and listen to the song on YouTube because its amazing:

I tried to fight the feeling, the feeling took me down
I struggle and I lost the day you knocked me out
Now everything's got meaning, the meanings bring me down
I'm watching as a screening of my life plays out

Every day I fight these feelings
For your sake I will hide the real thing
You can run all your life, all mine I will chase

You should never fight your feelings
When your very bones believe them
You should never fight your feelings
You have to follow natures law

I'll live with never knowing, if knowings gonna change
I'll stop a feeling growing, I will stay away
Like a broken record, stuck before a song
A million beginnings, none of them the one

Every day I fight these feelings
For your sake I will hide the real thing
You can run all your life, all mine I will chase

You should never fight your feelings
When your very bones believe them
You should never fight your feelings
You have to follow natures law

I wrote her letters and tried to send them
In a bottle I place my hope
An S.O.S full of good intentions sinking
Will you give it to me, don't make me wait
You built me up, knocked me down
But I will stand my ground
And guard this light that I've found

You should never fight your feelings
When your very bones believe them
If you let them show, you'll keep them
I know your hurt but soon you'll rise again, again, again

Hey,
I really love Billy Joel as a theme song for Poppy and Justin. Also, there is the band Wilco. They have a plethora of songs that I think fit the couple so well. I can't even name just one. They all relate to the story in some way. You should give them a listen. Their songs are so nice and they have a nice feel to them. I just wanted to throw them out there. All of these other songs are so great too!

Oh, and where is this story that ripped off yours? I want to find it and tell that author to suck it! I can't find it anywhere, so maybe they took it down? I'm not sure.

The story is on Fanfiction.net under the Twilight category. It is still up. I feel a little bad because in her profile, she says that she is only 13 but she needs to learn not to do this. I hate feeling like a bitch though.

Hey Kate!

I guess people had jumped the gun before I did to tell you that the person who stole your story, was deleted.

Me and A LOOOOT of people did report this abuse to the fanfiction.net site. You see how dedicated we are towards you gurl?
