Earlier this year I wrote an entry titled “My Life Defined by Music” (click link to read). In my opinion, my tastes are fairly eclectic. I like most music. This week I added a new song to my play list.
Recently, I received an email from a very talented gentleman, Don Muller, who was looking for a graphic to go with a song that he had written. Mr. Muller shared his song with me and I was really taken by it.
Here’s a link to Don Muller’s site & his music ~ http://sites.google.com/site/mullsmusicsite/
The name of the song is “I Lost My Heart Along This Road”
Here’s what Mr. Muller said about his song ~
“I Lost My Heart Subject”
Although it sounds like a straight ahead love song, this song is actually about a Heart Transplant. The singer was in a motorcycle accident, and was an organ donor.
The sex of the donor is not important, and his heart was transplanted into a woman. They will not allow a transplant twice, so his heart is hers forever. The identity of the donor is usually kept from the person who receives the transplant. However, the woman in this song hires a detective to find out who. Because his gravesite is not available to her for some reason, she puts flowers along the road where he died every year on the date of the accident, to honor the man who saved her life.
Corny, but aren’t Country songs supposed to be corny?
While I was looking for a graphic to go with the song, I came across this blog on the subject. Total coincidence, but goes perfectly with the song.
You can listen to this song at this link (It truly is excellent) ~ http://sites.google.com/site/mullsmusicsite/home/original-music
Thanks Mr. Muller, I am honored to be able to share this song.
