I was reading a friend’s blog today who had posted a song that was sentimental to her from her childhood. That got me thinking — not so much about songs from my childhood – but songs that have had a lasting sentimental impression on me. Only a few, to be honest. These songs are the kind of songs that never get old and I can never hear them enough because they have that emotional link to them. I’ll add the mp3s when i get home (unless i have them here, which I may).
1. The Very Thought Of You (Nat King Cole)
2. Baby Mine (Dumbo)
3. The Rainbow Connection (Muppets)
4. Barcelona (Rufus Wainwright)
5. Hero and Leander (Adam Guettal)
6. Unexpected Song (Song & Dance/Tell Me On a Sunday)
7. Crazy (Patsy Cline)
8. Be Still My Soul (um — traditional, I guess)
9. Golden Slumbers (The Beatles)
10. Blanket For A Sail (Harry Nillsen)
They all have value for one reason or another — none of which I’m going to go into. Some of you know the songs and the reasons — some of you know the songs and are the reason. But I digress … I’ll post some of these tonite.
