My little game

A while back I asked what songs you could listen to every day for the rest of your life. Many of you asked me what song I couldn't live without.

I think this is a pretty impossible question for me to answer. Being a musician I actually LOVE a lot of music and have a tricky time narrowing. I came up with a list (maybe not short enough) but here you go, a list of songs I never EVER get tired of. I have the titles of the songs linked to YouTube for easy listening, so just point and click.

-Hallelujah- Rufus Wainwright
-Baba Yetu- Christopher Tin
-Hard Habit- Chicago
-Its my Life- Bon Jovi
-Jupiter- Holst
-Gabriel's oboe from The Mission soundtrack
-Good-bye my Lover- James Blunt
-Unanswered Prayers- Garth Brooks
-I can't help falling in love with you- Elvis version
-Moon River- Andy Williams
-Love Today- Mika
-Final Countdown- Europe
-Psalm 23- Jeff Majors
-Time to Say Goodbye- Andrea Bocelli and Sarah Brightman
-anything from the opera "Carmen"
-Viva La Vida- Coldplay

Pick a day, month, and year as early as January 2003-now and I will post a picture from that date and tell you the background to the picture.

(and I promise to do it this weekend :-)

I agree with you it's hard to pick just one song. I love a lot of these also. The Baba Yetu reminds me of Alex - didn't he introduce you to that song. It made me miss him but smile. I LOVE Gabriel's Oboe. You need to check my link on facebook that I got from Katie McMillan the other day. It's MC at the Rose Parade :)

Hmmmm...I choose October 30th, 2007. :)
By the way, I'd LOVE to take pics of your boys when you come down (which is not soon enough!!!) and would you believe that Natasha asked me to take a picture with her in it!!! :)

I'm surprised but I liked all of those songs. However, I REALLY liked Hallelujah, Baba Yetu and Time to say goodbye. I also liked Gabriels Oboe. It made me think of you.That Mika song was also kind of cool. Thanks for the links. I'm going to download some of them.
