Reba McEntire/Valory Music Co.

A lot of the movies I have watched lately really hit home.  Not always have I found myself in the same exact situation, but I have been seeing things in movies that I can relate to, or I compare how I would react to a certain situation.  Well, [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Reba [/lastfm]actually had this happen to her.  And what did she do?  Wrote a song about it.
Sometimes we take things for granted in life, especially songs.  A lot of times we say that we relate to the songs and we talk about what the song means to us and even sometimes we think to ourselves, “what was going through their mind.”

Well, [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Reba [/lastfm]opened up about how she thought of the idea for Somebody’s Chelsea, which is on her most recent album, All The Women I Am:


When I got the inspiration for that song, I was watching a movie, ‘P.S. I Love You‘ [with] Harry Connick, Jr. [and] Hillary Swank. And they’re sitting at the booth in the café and she’s saying how much she loved her husband who passed on. I don’t know his name in the movie, it could’ve been Frank or something. And Harry Connick, Jr.’s like, “What did I do? What’s wrong? How come you won’t love me?” “Well, my husband was this, he was that. He was just so good …” And Harry Connick, Jr. gets up and starts to walk out, and she goes, “Where you going?” He said, “I want to be somebody’s Frank. I’m going to go find that person.” I’m like, “What a great idea for a song.”

Here is the song.  Does this hit home to you?
What movie could fit your life perfectly?  Let me know on Twitter @chuckon995
