Music Monday - "Paperweight" by Schuyler Fisk & Joshua Radin from the Dear John Soundtrack

I find my music in the strangest of way sometimes.  I started watching the Bachelorette after years of not watching and was quickly hooked.  Ali was someone that any girl could connect with and apparently she has great taste in music as well.  In one of her “dates” she had her favorite singer, Joshua Radin, come on and sing.  I immediately looked him up and started downloading his songs.

Now who is Schuyler Fisk, you might ask?  The daughter of actress Sissy Spacek ("Carrie”, anyone?), this girl has an amazing natural talent.  I was watching the movie "I’m Reed Fish" on my Netflix Instant play (which has saved me of my boredom pre-September) when her character got up in a bar, played guitar and sang beautifuly.  What do I do?  Go on IMDB and find out who she is of course!  After looking her up on YouTube, I find out that her AND Joshua Radin had recorded a song together.  Apparently they have toured together before…and they are dating.

Perfect.

The song sounded so familiar, and then I realized it was on the trailer for "Dear John".

Another bonus point.

So, take a listen.  What do you think?
