MUSIC TO SCROLL BY: Music from “The Notebook” soundtrack by Aaron Zigman



How beautiful is this music from the 2004 film, The Notebook starring Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams, James Garner and Gena Rowlands? The score is by American composer Aaron Sigman.

Mr Luscious has added it to our music collection, and we’re playing it as he puts the Sunday night roast on. I hope you can enjoy it too.

Buy the DVD and soundtrack CD for more.
