Today albums have less significance than before. But great songs take a life of their own. Many people say they don't love artists but songs. Although I do have some favorite artists, I've also started discovering that even if I'm not that fond of all their work, they often have amazing songs. When I listen to them on my iPod, all those different album covers seem meaningless, however, if they don't express the message of the song in some way. So I thought 'Why should each song have the same cover?' I'd love to see the song cover and immediately get the "vibe" from the the artwork. With this blog I make an attempt to reach this goal.

I'm not sure but I think Christina got the idea of comparing soulmates to penguins from the movie Never Been Kissed. There was a scene where Drew Barrymore's character Josie talks about penguin couples spending all their lives together. And what comes after this is the funniest moment of the... Continue reading
