The Songs We Share with Someone Special #Troop8x #HTC8

2 Flares 2 Flares ×

With Valentine’s Day in just over a week, thoughts turn to love, to friendship, romance…family, friends…spouses.  All normal.  I don’t know about you but so many of the important people in my life are so intertwined with songs to me that I can’t hear the song without thinking of them, or see them without the song.  So lucky for you, I’m sharing a Playlist of my Loved Ones, so to speak…..

You may remember me sharing how “Because you loved me” is all for my dad.  It always will be.  I’m his voice now.  I have to be, because Alzheimer’s has robbed him of that.

me and dad

My friend Missy- Cabin 13 at Camp Nokomis- belting out “On My Own” from Les Mis…or …(sorry Missy) the song from Days of Our Lives…”We don’t have to be one or the other….”

Ann, my oldest friend- the B-52′s “Love Shack” will never ever not make me smile!

My mom- With mom, it’s anything Anne Murray, Josh Groban, or Kenny Rogers’ “The Gambler” which I know sounds like a weird mix but I’ll never hear those songs without thinking of her.  Many cry when they hear The Gambler, I just cry for a different reason….

Renee, my roommate freshman year of college- Gin Blossom’s “Two Princes” makes me smile every time I hear it!

Israel Kamakawiwo’ole’s Somewhere Over the Rainbow  is so beautiful, so poignant, and brings me to tears each and every time I hear it.  It makes me think of my wonderful friends who have angel babies up in heaven- and I think of the love each inspired during their short times on earth- Emery Amelia, Jamie Lynn and Monir.

An old high school friend Mandy- “I Like Big Butts” is a song that makes me smile because I think of her.

It’s funny- I’m so sentimental, and so sappy, but not all of my songs are that mean the most!

I think maybe I should use some of these as ring tones for the people associated with them, don’t you?  What songs are on your “special someone” playlist?

  • I think the Big Butts song is hilarious. ‘Love Shack’ was a fun song.

    Brown-Eyed Girl by Van Robinson makes me think of my childhood. I used to listen to my grandfather’s records when I was younger and this was one of them.

  • “I’m a Barbie Girl” always reminds me of one of my best friends from college. We used to always dance to that song. And since she had long, straight blonde hair, it always suited her perfectly. ;)

    “Elvira” by the Oak Ridge Boys will always remind me of my husband. Apparently he loved that song as a baby, and I can picture him as a baby/toddler jamming out to that song, singing along. The thought always makes me smile!

  • That’s one of the reasons I love music. a song can take you back to a time and place. It can also help change your mood. Music is very important part of our lives.

  • It’s funny how songs, sights, smells, and other things can trigger the brain to bring you back to certain memories. Every time I smell a fireplace, I think of my grandmother’s house because she always had one burning when I was little.
