2.14.09 love songs

Friends of SingleGirl are getting hitched, and are trying to find "their song." When you don't have a couple-y song, it can be pretty intimidating to find one that not only fits both of you, but that you'd be OK with your grandma dancing to. (For example, maybe Baby Got Back isn't a great choice...but maybe it is!) I started scrolling down my iTunes library to find my favorite love songs, and here's a selection of them. (In no particular order, except the rough alphabetizing from iTunes.)

  1. Shawn Colvin's cover of the Talking Heads This Must Be the Place (Naive Melody)
  2. Alice Peacock - You're my Northern Star
  3. Ani DiFranco - As Is
  4. The Blue Nile - Tomorrow Morning
  5. BT - Simply Being Loved
  6. David Gray - Sail Away
  7. Dido - Thank You
  8. Ella Fitzgerald -I'm Just a Lucky So-And-So
  9. Elliot Smith - Say Yes
  10. Feist - Brandy Alexander
  11. Jason Mraz - I'm Yours
  12. Jonatha Brooke - If I Told You
  13. Nick Cave - Into My Arms
  14. Once Blue - Amateur
  15. Patty Griffin - One Big Love
  16. Peter Mulvey's cover of The Waterboys The Whole of the Moon
  17. Pink Martini - Let's Never Stop Falling In Love
  18. REM - You Are The Everything
  19. Regina Spektor - Fidelity
  20. Stevie Wonder - Don't You Worry 'bout A Thing
  21. The Sundays' cover of the Rolling Stones Wild Horses
  22. Suzanne Vega - World Before Columbus
  23. Teddy Thompson - Brink of Love
  24. Toad the Wet Sprocket - I Will Not Take These Things For Granted
  25. The Weepies - Somebody Loved
My five:
  1. Martinis with friends.
  2. Coffee.
  3. The gym, and the trainer who pushes my baby steps.
  4. Hubby
  5. Memories of Dad.
