    LOVE the list! Sinatra is the absolute best – good wedding song. I forgot I am now living Take This Job and Shove it. Will dowload to the Ipod.

    I have to admit, I love music, all types. But I’m terrible with song titles and artists. I am a huge James Taylor fan my faves You’ve Got a Friend, and Whenever I See Your Smiling Face. And right now it’s bugging the crap out of me that my brain will not allow me to retrieve any other song titles. Sorry.

      Wendy, you crack me up – I do not want to stress you out! BUT I think you can say most of James Taylor’s hits put a huge array of themes on every part of life so you have it covered!

    My recent one is Sound of Sunshine by Michael Franti (spelling?).
    It will keep me going thru the cold, dark days of winter. Sighhhh.

    Love the pic of you and the boys!

    OMG what a can of worms you opened for me. lol
    The last few years has made me assign many a theme song for what was going on in my life (of course the fact that I owned the CD’s encouraged that) and the scenes are as follows:
    The last year of a troubled marriage – Mindy Smith “Raggedy Ann” and Beyonces “Listen”
    As she is leaving the marriage – Sara Evans “I learned that from you” and Rascal Flatts “I feel bad”
    The first year after she left – Sara Evans “A little bit stronger” and Jodee Messina “Bring on the rain”
    The second year after she left – Christina Aguilera – “Fighter” , Jodee Messina “My give a damn’s busted” and Rascall Flatts “Stand”
    How she feels now about the ex after 4 years of healing – Rascall Flatts – “My Wish”
    And finally about where I am now – Diana Ross “It’s my turn”
    Of course my own personal experiences were different than the one’s in these songs but the sentiments where right on. So there’s my list just remember you asked. lol
