There is nothing that gets me moving like a little music from Michael Buble, and his recent release, To Be Loved, is no exception.
I love this music. Heck, I love this man, or what I know of him, at least. Those dimples. Those moves.
Yeah, I’m a little biased.
He could order a pizza and I’d find the words magical.
But lucky for all of us, he does more with his words than that.
He creates the kind of timeless sounds that leave us swooning.
My favorite track on To Be Loved is actually a song Buble helped write, Close Your Eyes.
Close your eyes,
Let me tell you all the reasons why
I think you’re one of a kind.
Here’s to you,
The one that always pulls us through
Always do what you gotta do
You’re one of a kind.
Thank God you’re mine.
What woman doesn’t want to hear those words?
A close second is Something Stupid, which features Reese Witherspoon. I can’t help but sing along every single time I hear that song. And yes, I pretend I’m Reese, too, because I’d give anything to sing with this sexy crooner. Not that I should, because I am not talented one bit when it comes to singing, but I’d happily be a backup dancer or something.
Anyway, Buble just seems to get better with age, and is willing to work for it. “Do not think I take my success these last ten years for granted. I was anything but an overnight sensation, which inspires me to deliver big time for my fans—maybe even make some new ones this time out,” says Bublé. “I labored over every song, every note and every arrangement because I can’t resist trying to make each record better than my last one.”
Gotta respect that, right? After all, just when you think he can’t get any better, he does.
Want to hear more? Check out my little sampler, recorded while a driver was taking me to an event in Atlanta recently. It was a great time to sit back, relax, and appreciate the best. Take a listen below. Then get the album for your next road trip. Let me know in comments below which song you liked best!

I participated in this campaign for One2One Network. I received a free copy of the album to facilitate my review (but also bought my own the day they were released–yes–I’m that big a fan!). By posting, I am eligible for incentives. All opinions stated are my own.
