As featured by my incredible-bachelorette-party-scratchy-voice on episode 5, here are the three songs that give me the butterfly-feeling; the hopeful, uplifting, excitement that a romance novel also does!
1) Belle, Beauty and the Beast
Ahh, isn't this amazing? It's my favorite part, because, you see,
Here's where she meets prince charming,
But she won't discover that it's him,
Till chapter three!
2) Storybook, The Scarlet Pimpernel
Come, let's believe love can be just as sweet as it seems Let's live on dreams.
In my dreams, such beautiful lovers have found me Storybook lovers surround me Nothing is real, but I'm flying Sighing: Where, where, where is my storybook ending? Why does my golden pretending Leave me with nothing to hold... but My dreams?
Oh, is it only in dreams that we find our ideal love? Are there lovers in real life? If you know how to feel love, show me how Ah, but my prince, if you can't be sweet as you seem I'd rather dream!
Come and wake me! Come be love I can hold now! Storybook love leaves me cold now! Show me the way to stop dreaming! There is only, one perfect storybook ending That is the end of pretending That is the moment I say: Love me now!
3) Take a Break, Hamilton
In a letter I received from you two weeks ago
I noticed a comma in the middle of a phrase
It changed the meaning, did you intend this
One stroke and you've consumed my waking days, it says
My dearest Angelica
With a comma after dearest, you've written
My dearest, [breath] Angelica
Anyway, all this to say
So what got you into romance? Was it songs like me? History like Kelsey? What was your gateway!?
