I ordered my niece, Brooke, to tag me, and being an obedient child, she did.
7 of My Fav Songs, and why I like them:
The Old Rugged Cross
I love this song not just for the memories of standing next to Gram in church and singing, but because when I was six or so years old my teenaged brother and I would sit together near the heat vent from Gram’s wood furnace and Harold would sing this song. I remember leaning against his chest and listening to his voice rumble and knowing that God was good and the world was safe. [This version sung by Andy Griffith]
Julie, Do You Love Me?, Bobby Sherman
I was 11 and he was, sigh, wonderful. (I was afraid if I didn’t include it Cindra Jo would tell you all anyway.)
Monster Mash, Bobby “Boris” Pickett
It appeals to my silly. I teach this to my students every year.
Nights in White Satin, Moody Blues
First serous love — need I say more?
Heartache Tonight, The Eagles
Life was good, out dancing every night, more dates than I knew what to do with — I was going to live forever.
Could I Have This Dance, Anne Murray
One of the good memories from my marriage. Michael proposed to me while this song was playing. After that everytime it came on, no matter where we were, we danced to it; even if it meant pulling over and dancing by the side of the road. Some memories stay precious.
Here I Am, Lord, Dan Shutte
This song and an incredible speaker, with a bit of help from God, pretty much changed my life. [See: Sidewalk Sunday School]
