Music linkup week 25: Playing with the boys/You've lost that lovin feelin

This week I have two songs, but they're BOTH from the movie "Top Gun".  The first song is an absolute MUST, after my Beach Day last week.  If you weren't there, you were seriously missing out, because there was a BEACH VOLLEYBALL TOURNAMENT.  On the BASE.  Yeah, that's right, really hot half-naked Marines getting all sweaty - RIGHT IN FRONT OF US. I wish I'd taken some pictures, but they wouldn't have come out great, as there would have been DROOL all over my camera HA HA HA!

But the whole time they were playing, I kept hearing Kenny Loggins' song "Playing With The Boys". Yes, I know in the movie they were Naval Aviators, not Marines, but whatever.  Hot sweaty men are still, well, HOT!

Now, before any of you go criticizing me, a married woman, for openly OGLING those (very hot) men, I was JUST LOOKING, OK?  And they probably would have completely gone unnoticed except that I've been feeling particularly neglected lately.....hubs is 'trying' really hard to really BE a husband and father, but I think he's got a lot of demons to slay in his own mind first. It could literally be YEARS before he is really ready to be the man I need him to be - the same man he was BEFORE the third deplyment.  In the meantime, I am lucky if I get any action more than like once a month.  :( 

Which of course brings me to another song from Top Gun - "You've Lost That Lovin Feelin" by The Righteous Brothers.  Such a great song, even if it DOES hit a little too close to home these days.

What's your song?  Have you linked it up yet?  If not, GO DO IT NOW.  We'll wait. (no we won't, HURRY! ha ha ha)

Who doesn't like Top Gun? And your story of sweaty Marines? Lovely. To be honest I've had discussions with my Hubby that it's okay to admire the creation of a wonderful body from afar as long as that's as far as it goes and all it is. So go on... oogle those guys!

I LOVE Top Gun, especially that volleyball scene! And there's nothing wrong with ogling. Hang in there girl. :)

Great song choices! I love this movie and always start singing along with "You've Lost that Lovin' Feeling" at the top of my lungs! Your beach story made me laugh - I needed that!
