Ten On Tuesday

Today is my 14th wedding anniversary and since it happens to fall on a Tuesday I totally chose this week’s Ten on Tuesday topic to reflect my feelings. Let’s get all romantic and talk about our 10 Favorite Love Songs.

  1. Moon River. It’s “our” song so it has to be first on the list. We danced to the Andy Williams version as our first dance as a married couple and we still dance to it every time we hear it.
  2. Could I Have This Dance by Anne Murray. This was our “going away” dance at our wedding and is also one we can’t resist.
  3. Back Home Again by John Denver. Perhaps not a song most people would consider a love song but it’s one I always played when Dale returned from his hunting trips. Being home is all about being with the people you love, after all.
  4. Distantly In Love by Jimmy Buffett. Another one about being separated from the one you love. Absence really does make the heart grow fonder, I think.
  5. I Got You Babe by Sonny and Cher. Sometimes I think this one was written just for us. It’s got stuff about long hair and being a clown and just being meant to be. We always joke that if we ever have an anniversary party we have to sing this one together. Too bad I can’t sing!
  6. Eighteen Wheels and a Dozen Roses by Kathy Mattea. Yeah, yeah, another country song, but it’s a good one and just makes you want to retire and be with the one you love.
  7. Let It Be Me by the Everly Brothers. The guys in the band sang this for our wedding ceremony. It was beautiful.
  8. Through the Years by Kenny Rogers. I always think of Dale’s parents when I hear this one, they were so devoted to each other.
  9. Till There Was You by The Beatles. No I never heard them at all, till there was you.
  10. Love in the Library by Jimmy Buffett. This is a little known song of Jimmy’s but it’s a favorite of ours. How could we not love a song about falling in love in the library?

That’s my list of love songs. They may not be very traditional but they speak volumes to me. Happy Anniversary, Dale. Thanks for making every day feel like a love song.

  2. Happy Anniversary! And what a wonderful topic! It’s so fun to think of favorite love songs and all of the wonderful memories that go with them.

  3. Happy Anniversary to two of my favorite people! You list speaks to you and of you and that’s the important thing. Smith and I have a song but I don’t really talk about it. It’s rather irreverent.

  4. Happy Anniversary! Your list of love songs is a fun one; an expressive soundtrack to your fourteen years! Congratulations!

  5. Happy Anniversary! Any guy who would model knitwear over his civil war shawl has got to be a romantic guy! (and a handsome one, too…but then, you knew that 🙂 )

  6. I hope you are enjoying your day. 14 years is a long time and I’m sure it seems like it was yesterday. I love the song I Got You Babe. many memories.

  7. Happy Anniversary to you both! Wish you many more wonderful years together! Everyday is the chance to create a new memory. I love your list!

  8. Happy Anniversary. This is a nice topic and it brought back sweet memories while choosing the songs (and a few tears too). I could not stop at 10, there are so many good love songs. I hope you and Dale get up and dance at every chance you have. S
