I love music and I thought it would be fun to list my favorite songs. I have two groups, secular and Christian.
Secular: Probably my all time favorite in this category is Unchained Melody. My husband and I saw the Righteous Brothers at the beautiful Fisher Theater in Detroit. When the main singer of that song, I believe it was Bill Medley finished, he said, " (some other singer I have forgotten, )eat your heart out") It was fantastic. Next comes Percy Sledge singing, When A Man Loves A Woman. After that, "He Ain't Heavy, He's My Brother. I love the lyrics and the haunting harmonica in that one. Rod Stewart singing, Then You Can Tell Me Goodbye. Two others, Willie Nelson's You Were Always On My Mind, and As Time Goes By, from Casablanca.
I guess you can tell that I have a great love for the ballad.
Christian songs: A Mighty Fortress with words by Martin Luther, Faithful One, As The Deer, I Will Celebrate Your Love Forever Yahweh, Let It Rise, Arise.
I also love these hymns: Be Thou My Vision (ancient Irish tune,) Above The Hills (to the tune of Danny Boy,) This Is My Song (tune is Finlandia,) Song Of Joy (Beethoven,) and Holy, Holy, Holy.
I especially love two Thanksgiving songs: We Gather Together and Come Ye Thankful People Come. The extra verses have such great words and the tunes are so sweet. I love to think myself in a small church in the evening about this time - lights are low, and we sing out one of these songs. This takes me back to my childhood, and makes me think of God and history and good things.
I think other people have done favorite songs on their blogs, but I haven't had the chance to list mine. Are there any on my list that you just love? Which are your favorites? They can be totally different.
