Hello there, first off let me start by saying I am honored to be a guest on such a fantastic blog. Even though Melissa and I have not personally met, I still adore her and consider her to be a friend.
Now, for those of you who do not know me, let me tell you a little bit about who I am and why Melissa has asked me to share with you all about my 5 favorite songs. I live in Nashville with my amazing boyfriend I like to call Guitar Hero (if you didn’t guess it already, it’s because he plays guitar). I share stories on my blog about our life together and what it’s like to date someone who is always on the road. He plays for Josh Turner and is unbelievably talented. We met in a music video and are very much in love. He also co-wrote a very famous country song, which I guess you can see where this is leading…. yes, his song is definitely in my top 5. So, without further adieu, let’s start with my top 5 songs and why they are my favorite. These are not in any order:
Livin’ Our Love Song – Jason Michael Carroll
Mainly because this is the song my Guitar Hero wrote, and it takes me back to when we first met. Every time I hear this song, I think of him and I catch myself smiling.
All My Lovin’ – The Beatles
This song describes our relationship perfectly. Plus it is OUR song.
Moon River – Henry Mancini
It is such a beautiful song and makes me dream of traveling.
Smile – any version
When I get really low, this is the song, I go to and sing out loud or in my head depending on where I am. It always seems to help me feel better.
When You Wish Upon A Star – Jimmy Cricket
Now, I have to admit it’s hard picking this 5th song but if I had to pick just 5, this one would be in it. This song takes me back to when I was little girl, growing up in Orlando and spending time at Disney World. It’s unreal, the butterflies I get in my stomach when I hear Jimmy Cricket speak at the firework display right before they play this song. It’s like I get Peter Pan Syndrome, and I can’t help but feel like I am a little girl again, full of hopes and dreams.
