Music of the Heart

Day 29: Five songs or pieces of music that speak to you or bring back memories.

1. Alabama: There's No Way

This is mine and Brent's first dance from our wedding. We almost danced to a George Strait song until Brent played this for me, and it was just right for us.

2. Cat Stevens: Moonshadow

3. Peter, Paul and Mary: Leaving on a Jet Plane

2 and 3 are both songs my mom sang to my sister and me as kids. I sing it to Drew and Trent. I didn't know until recently that my sister sings it to her kids too. Listening to Blair sing 'Moonshadow' or having Trent ask me to sing 'Jet plane' warms my heart like nothing else.

4. Queen: Killer Queen

Queen is one of my all-time favorite bands, and this is my favorite song of theirs. Patty and I just go to town when it's on. {grin}

5. Charlie Robison: New Year's Day

There are too many songs to name that will forever make me think of Brent. Should he ever leave me, I won't be able to listen to the radio for that very fact! This song brings back great memories of weekends spent with Brent and his cousin on his cousin's boat. We listened to this song over and over.
