There are many songs I could name, that make me cry, or laugh, or simply
smile in a memory. Here are just a few of them.
I think, actually, I will begin with a group. The Bogside Zukes are an Irish band out
of Bloomington. If they are playing, I'll have a wonderful evening, and
will only have my feet still if someone is sitting on them. I cannot
determine how even the most reserved of people could *possibly* be still
with Irish folk music by them playing. It even got me over my fear of fast
dancing and onto the dance floor!
On a lighter note, these are some songs that always strike me close t
- John Berry: When Love Dies. A very touching, poingent song.
- Mark Wills: Don't Laugh at Me. This song has always struck home for
me, having been one of the outsiders (I was smart) growing up. I was lucky,
though, the 'in' kids in my class were friendly, and then I went to a
high school where I fit in (finally). But I remember being the book worm,
the one that didn't fit in, and this song says what I wanted to for
- Steve Wariner: Holes in the Floor of Heaven. I first heard this song
driving home in a horrible horrible rainstorm for a dearly loved
grandmother's funeral. It begins: "One day shy of eight years old,
my grandma passed away/It was a broken hearted little boy, blowing out that
birthday cake". Needless to say, the rain wasn't only on the outside of
the car that day.
- Pam Tillis: Melancholoy Child. This is just a fun song, that is one of
those things that seems like I'd like to be...but probably am not.
- Wilson Phillips: Eyes Like Twins. This was a song a roommate of mine
and I adopted.
- Indigo Girls: Rites of Passage CD. This CD was also adopted by my
roommate and I. Galileo we agreed on (and those computer tables will hold
2 bouncy girls), I really liked Romeo, and she liked Ghost. I have grown
to appricate Ghost a lot. The second year we roomed was..shall we
say..rocky..but we always had the Indigo Girls. How can you not get along
with Indigo Girls playing?
