Who's got soul? Mrs. Fab does...

A number of weeks ago Matt from Meltwater. Torrents. Meanderings. Delta. created Dedication Friday. The idea is that you pick a song and dedicate it to someone and explain why. Of course, I'm such a bubblehead that every week I forget that it's Dedication Friday, and so I haven't done it yet.

All About Soul was a cut on Billy Joel's River of Dreams album that came out in 1993. From the moment I heard it I thought it fit my wife perfectly. This may surprise you, but Mr. Fabulous is not always the easiest person to live with. I may be fabulous, but I am not perfect (shocker!). And I can be a withdrawn, moody fellow (heck, Jennifer at work can tell you that). Especially lately.

Mrs. Fabulous is my rock. I am so lucky that we found each other all those years ago. I shudder to think where I would be today if not for her, and if God forbid anything should happen to her I shudder to think of how I would end up down the line.

This one is for you, baby. I love you.

All About Soul

She waits for me at night, she waits for me in silence
She gives me all her tenderness and takes away my pain
And so far she hasn't run, though I swear she's had her moments
She still believes in miracles while others cry in vain

It's all about soul
It's all about faith and a deeper devotion
It's all about soul'
Cause under the love is a stronger emotion
She's got to be strong
'Cause so many things getting out of control
Should drive her away
So why does she stay?
It's all about soul

She turns to me sometimes and asks me what I'm dreaming
And I realize I must have gone a million miles away
And I ask her how she knew to reach out for me that moment
And she smiles because it's understood there are no words to say

It's all about soul
It's all about knowing what someone is feeling
The woman's got soul
The power of love and the power of healing
This life isn't fair
It's gonna get dark, it's gonna get cold
You gotta get tough, but that ain't enough
It's all about soul

There are people who have lost every trace of human kindness
There are many who have fallen, there are some who still survive
She comes to me at night and she tells me her desires
And she gives me all the love I need to keep my faith alive

It's all about soul
It's all about joy that comes out of sorrow
It's all about soul
Who's standing now and who's standing tomorrow
You've got to be hard
Hard as the rock in that old rock 'n' roll
But that's only part, you know in your heart
It's all about soul

AWWW, what a sweet guy you can be Mr. Fab! I guess Mrs. Fab should get more deddications from you, seeing as she puts up with you and the Lemurs....and your mood really need to dedicate some to your co-workers too. Especially Jennifer. LOL

Mrs Fab is a lucky woman to be paid tribute like that... but then, she probably reaaaaaally deserves it! I mean enduring you for a husband, the mood nipples, the lemurs... ;-)

I've been doing something kind of similar over at my blog on Fridays called "The Boogie Boogie Song of the Day." It's not necessarily a dedication to someone though.

Great blog btw. I blogmarked you on BE.
