I’ve always loved the song “Zing! Went the Strings of My Heart,” particularly the Jimmy Sommerville/Communards version:

Dear when you smiled at me, I heard a melody
It haunted me from the start
Something inside of me started a symphony
Zing! Went the strings of my heart

‘Twas like a breath of spring, I heard a robin sing
About a nest set apart
All nature seemed to be in perfect harmony
Zing! Went the strings of my heart

Your eyes made skies seem blue again
What else could I do again
But keep repeating through and through
“I love you, love you”

I still recall the thrill, guess I always will
I hope ’twill never depart
Dear, with your lips to mine, a rhapsody devine
Zing! Went the strings of my heart

These lyrics were the inspiration for this necklace:


Give yourself a little treat and download the song, or at least listen to the 30 seconds of preview iTunes gives you.  It’s a classic.
