Favorite Song From Childhood: Grandma’s Feather Bed by John Denver.

Favorite High School Dance Song: I grew up in a small, logging town, and I remember vividly dancing to Fishin’ in the Dark by The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band and Pour Some Sugar on Me by Def Leppard. Slow songs: Eternal Flame by The Bangles and Lost in Your Eyes by Debbie Gibson. Cheesy, I know.

Senior Class Song: So sad, but I have no idea!

Song That Makes You Think of College: Orinocco Flow (Sail Away) by Enya. I have a very vivid memory of driving down a highway along the Snake River near Pullman with an old boyfriend, windows rolled down, and that song blaring. It was dusk – and the sky was that cerulean blue with the clouds almost black. Beautiful. Also, anything by Pearl Jam or Toad the Wet Sprocket. Plus, I had a (different) boyfriend who was several years older than me and introduced me to a bunch of great music that I had missed, like Dire Straits, The Moody Blues, and others. Not really my era, but still makes me think of that time.

Favorite Rock & Roll Song: November Rain – Guns ‘n’ Roses

Favorite Disco Song: We like the Bee Gees at our house, so probably Nighs on Broadway.

Favorite Country Western Song: I listen to Country music all the time, so there are a ton of them, but for one that really embodies the genre, probably Boot, Scootin’ Boogie.

Favorite Pop Song: I can’t really think of one.

Favorite All Time Love Song: Faithfully and Open Arms by Journey, and our wedding song: Go There With You by Steven Curtis Chapman

Favorite Break Up Song: I Can’t Make You Love Me by Bonnie Raitt.

Favorite Slow Dance Song: In Your Eyes by Peter Gabriel.

Song That Always Makes You Cry: I Hope You Dance by Leann Womack

Songs About Your Kids: I sang these two songs aloud to each of my kids when they were babies: For Sentimental Reasons and L-O-V-E – the Natalie Cole versions, if you’re interested.

Song That Reminds You Of Your Husband: Still the One by Shania Twain. I normally can’t stand her music, but that song embodies so much of our story. Also The Great Adventure by Steven Curtis Chapman. Not a love song, but that album was one of the first things we had in common. He loaned me his copy and we both mentioned that Go There With You (see answer on “Favorite All-Time Love Song) would make a perfect wedding song. And it did.

Favorite Christmas Song: Hark! The Herald Angels Sing

Favorite Gospel/Praise Song: Indescribable by Chris Tomlin

Favorite Ringtone on Cellphone: My friend Michelle has Hava Nagila on her phone and it gets stuck in my head every time I’m at her house and the phone rings, but I honestly can’t think of any others.

Found this at Rocks in My Dryer. Let me know if you sing along.

    No singing, but if you will notice under the pic of me and Kevin on my blog…I have a line from Shania’s “Still the one”!! Isn’t it funny how we think alike so often! :)

    Lawanda – that’s funny – I’ve noticed the line, but never made the connection!

  3. Randi

    My mom was the biggest John Denver fan around so Grandma’s Feather bed is completely familiar!

    Also, Journey always takes me back to my Jr. High days!

  4. carrie

    Randi – my husband and you must be around the same age. Journey is a little before my time, but Kevin still loves it and plays it, so now I do, too.

    I enjoyed this one very much! May sing along! *Grin*
