So yeah, butterflies were my mother’s thing.
I used to see them everywhere and think, “Oh, Mom would like that.” Now that she’s gone I think, “Oh, Mom would’ve liked that. Same thing, just one step to the right. It’s true for all of her interests. Last weekend I dropped by a charity book sale and found myself looking for Parent’s Magazine Press books, the imprint my mother collected. I can’t remember ever visiting a used book sale where I didn’t keep an eye out for those books. That’s just how these things go, you know.
Anyway, butterfly songs:
“Poor Butterfly,” Sarah Vaughan.
“Dog and Butterfly,” Heart.
“Butterfly,” Lenny Kravitz.
“Brush With the Midnight Butterfly,” The Human Beast.
“The Crow and the Butterfly,” Shinedown.
“Butterfly Dreams,” Stanley Clarke.
So there you have it: Eight butterfly songs from my stacks. What did I miss? I’m listening.
