love you I do

today we're back to Broadway: 
 
It's almost too good to be true - 
You're the perfect man for me,
I Love you, I do.

Hope you enjoyed song week!

walked a 1000 miles to fall down at my door

Back in my spring fluff days ('cause I suppose I'm still in my "spring chicken" days) I would hear "500 Miles" by the Proclaimers on the soft rock radio station. (Ah yes, I've come so far . . .) Anyway, I just love the chorus: 
But I would walk 500 miles
And I would walk 500 more
Just to be the man who walks 1,000 miles
To fall down at your door

na na na, na na na
na na na, na na na
lika lika lika lika lika la, la, la . . .
Aside from my love of singing nonsense words I loved the romance of the song, all about a man who would walk 1000 miles just to fall down at my door.  Then all at once the other day I realized I have such a man. Because he'll go to the store, or down the hall, or up the stairs, or into Tigard, or over to Utah to please me, care for me, help me out.

It's so nice when our "dreams come true" . . . then add Johnny Depp added to the mix, couldn't be better . . . push play to see what I mean.

me

Gaston's song "Me" took a long time to find . . .

Anyway Cory likes cheesy things - like Gaston
and he has dimples - like Gaston
and he can eat a lot of eggs in the morning - like Gaston
and, well since he started biking, he can truthfully sing that "we'll be the perfect pair rather like my thighs."
too bad there are no children in the background to sing "his thighs"

go to 1:56 (one minute fifty-six seconds)

song week

I thought it was about time for a theme week. I haven't done one before . . . anyway, welcome to "Song Week" I thought I'd kick things off with "our songs"

First we have "Love Me" by Colin Ray.



I know the video is a bit cheesy but it's the best there was (truly). This song is proof that the songs choose you, you don't choose the songs. Because had I chosen a song this wouldn't have been it . . . but I feel emotional all the same.

Instead I would've chosen "Baby Baby" by Amy Grant - which I tried to sing at our reception but forgot . . .



Or perhaps, for "our" song I'd have chosen "Eternal Flame" by the Bangles. Which we danced our first "dance" too.



Great as those songs are though if we really do have another "our" song it comes from the amazing songwriter Jason Robert Brown, "I'd Give It All For You." And believe or not this is the best that You Tube has to offer, it's either bad sound with JRB or a ton of amateurs - primarily high schoolers - and "our song" deserves better than that. So here's a fan take:



Oh! Wait!! I thought of one more . . . I know, I know, I'll keep the other posts to only one song okay? Anyway it's the first song we ever slow-danced to: "I'll Be" by the Goo Goo Dolls. Now that's a proper song to have as "our song" don't you think?
