If I Didn't Have You

The Big Bang Theory is full of cute, romantic moments, and among all them, there's one that I'm specially in love with: Howard and Bernadette's anniversary.

On the day of the anniversary, something goes wrong at the lab, which compels Bernadette to stay there in order to avoid any possible biological contamination. That would ruin the date since she's unable to leave the lab. And that's exactly why Howard decides to bring the date to her instead. :)
The scene shows Rajesh, Penny, Leonard, Sheldon, Amy and Howard -at the piano- ready to give Bernadette the best anniversary gift ever: 'If I Didn't Have You', a wonderful song composed and performed by the one and only Howard Wolowitz -leading voice and piano- along with all his friends -backing vocals-. To me, the best aniversary gift ever, and one of the most special moments in The Big Bang Theory. Enjoy yourself! :D

Into A Fantasy

For those who don't know who is Alexander Rybak, this amazing violinist and singer is honoured to be the winner of the Eurovision Song Contest 2009, with his song 'Fairytale'. After Eurovision, Alexander Rybak released  four amazing albums ('Fairytales', 'No Boundaries', 'Visa vid vindens ängar' and 'Christmas Tales') which I totally recommend.
This year, the Norwegian singer composed a song for the motion picture 'How To Train Your Dragon 2', called 'Into A Fantasy' and  performed (both voice and violin) by himself. And... what could I say from this incredible song? An amazing arrangement, a perfect balance between violin and voice, smart melodies... and the best lyrics possible. All in one amazing song. With all of you, Alexander Rybak...and his masterpiece 'Into A Fantasy'.

Kunstberg & Coudenberg

As the heart of Europe, Brussels is full of worldwide-known landmarks, of course. But if you search carefully through its narrow -and not so narrow- streets, you'll find lots of places that you would have never imagined to find there. And to offer you some help... here you are two: Coudenberg and Kunstberg :)

Église de Coudenberg/Koudenbergskerk

Located next to the Royal Palace, in the Royal Square -Place Royale or Koninklijk Plein-, this pretty, white Church is the official worship place where the Belgian Kings and heirs celebrate their Christening ceremonies. Surely, a place you shouldn't miss at all! 

Mont des Arts/Kunstberg

The Kunstberg -Mountain of the Arts in Dutch- is a beautiful garden square located just a  few steps away from Coudenberg, home for both the Belgian Royal Library and the Museum of Fine Arts. By night, light and colour turn this place into one of Brussels's most wonderful places. But it's not a big deal if you miss it by night, it's impressive 24 hours a day! :)

Today, I would like to share with you all one of the cutest and most magic moments in 'How I Met Your Mother' ever. And yes, it's Marvin's Lullaby!
This wondrous song, called 'Night, Night, Little Marvin', is the one Marshall and Lily use to wish a goodnight to their son, Marvin Waitforit Eriksen, who was born in 2012, just at the end of season 7 -Magician's Code chapters 1 and 2-.
Jason Segel's voice is so sweet and tender, and Lily looks so proffessional when it comes to instrumental skills, so I gotta say they make a wonderful couple not just as husband and wife, but as musicians too.
For those interested, the song appears on the sitcom's episode 'The Final Page Part 2', season 8, the same episode when Ted inaugurates his greatest artwork to date, the GNB Tower, and when Barney proposes marriage to Robin in the roof of WWN Building -to me, one of the sitcom's best episodes ever!-. And now, with no further delay, here you are the one and only 'Night, Night, Little Marvin' as performed by his dedicated parents, Marshall Eriksen and Lily Aldrin! :D

The original video, as appears on the already mentioned episode :)

The official song, full version :)
