A Braided Chain

Love is in da blog

Happy February! I’m participating in Bee’s fun music challenge again and hope you’ll join in (you don’t have to play every day).

Today’s theme is a love song containing jewelry. In this sad song, we discover that Brandy loves a man who can’t be with her because his true love is the sea. She wears a locket that bears his name on a braided chain made of finest silver from the North of Spain. It’s implied he gave it to her, which is weird, if you think about it (“can’t stay, honey, but I got you sumpin with my name on it”), but I still love the song. ❤️

  2. At least Brandy is free to date other men when her sailor is out at sea. She has her memories of him, but she is not tied down.

  5. Love this song!! 😻
    It’s a fine song (such a fine song)
    What a good song it would be (what a good song)
    If the en-ding was a little more hap-py

    • Hehe maybe later… it’s just one point in time. Also, Brandy could be just saying this to the jerko drunks who hit on her. She and sailor man have a plan to buy a sweet cottage in 5 years and raise a family… 💖
