Day 1: My Favorite Songs (I Can’t Pick Just One)

Day 1:  My Favorite Song

I love music, unfortunately, I’m not very musically inclined.  Well, except when I’m in the car ~ then I turn up the radio and totally rock out to some of my favorite songs.  Sometimes, if I’m really “feeling it”  I’ll pull over on the side of the road and try to force the kids to sing along with me.

I couldn’t pick just one song because there are are so many that mean a lot to me for various reasons, so I decided to break them down into categories and offer two selections from each one.  Overachieve, much?

Classical

One of the first romantic movies I ever watched was Somewhere in Time and I remember being so caught up in the idea of someone loving someone else so much that they would move through time to be with him or her…  That’s what I wanted, someone who would love me enough to defy reason to be with me.

Gospel

“Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.”  (John 15:13 KJV)  I believe with all my heart and soul that God sent His son to die for me and that He hung, bled and died for me and it is through His resurrection that I will receive eternal life through Him.  How can you help but not to love and worship Him?

Love Songs

  • At Last by Etta James
  • Endless Love by Lionel Richie and Diana Ross

Don’t tell anyone, but I am a romantic.  I believe first love lasts always (even when the relationship ends), I believe in love at first sight (even when that sight is obscured by BDUs)…

Motown

Another case of me being romantic, but seriously, they just don’t make music like this anymore.  I’m talking about music that makes you smile because each line holds some truth, the kind of music that makes you forget why you wanted to whip out the “ghetto gun” and reminds you of why you love that crazy man/woman.  *side note:  back in the day, a “ghetto gun” was the container of grits that every woman had on hand, just in case….”

Soundtrack

Sometimes the soundtracks are better than the movies, sometimes the soundtracks move the story along and sometimes the soundtrack just gets stuck in your head like an ear worm and there’s nothing you can do but sing along.
