Music

I’ve got nothing for you today — certainly not my five favorite songs. Besides, today’s top five will be different from tomorrow’s top five. For the record, though, the top five songs on my iTunes are all Andrew Peterson.

So here’s a little nonsense with song titles by some of the artists or albums I like:

1Dear Prudence,

2What’s the buzz?

3If I could 4colour my world — 5wait, 6I don’t know how. 7If I had a million dollars 8I’ll find a way.

9After all these years 10what hurts the most, 11Sir Duke (had) 12nothing to say 13until you came along.

14Ready for the storm? 15Sigh no more 16if 17the rain keeps falling 18here in America. 19Where you are, 20carrot juice is murder.

21Good night.

22PS I love you.

1. The Beatles — you’ve got to love the Beatles
2. Jesus Christ, Superstar — I listened to this album no less than 1679 times
3. Simon & Garfunkel (El Condor Pasa)
4. Chicago (loved the flute solo in this song)
5. The Beatles
6. Jason Gray
7. Barenaked Ladies
8. Jill Phillips and Andy Gullahorn (also Jason Gray)

  1. What a brilliant way of sharing some of your music. They say that our choices reflect who we are rather like books. So I feel I know you a little better for this but of course it is only a tiny snippet ….

    • Honestly, it’s a strange little snippet. I love Dvorak and Mozart. I started the post looking for my favorite Kingston Trio songs from my growing up years, then I wandered into Smothers Brothers land — most of whose songs and routines I know by heart. I have also devoured musicals — The Fantastiks, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, Phantom of the Opera, and Les Mis to name a few. I love folk music best of all — and the best concerts are small, intimate affairs, not sold-out arenas — although a dream of mine is to hear Dvorak’s New World Symphony performed live. That probably tells you more about me.

      • It really does …. thank you for taking the time to share. I don’t know if there is a thing called ‘Desert Island Discs’ here but it is something a radio institution in Britain. I have often wondered what my ten discs would be …. some of yours would be hard to resist, I must say. And folk music is surely the heart of any culture. I think so anyway. My husband often sings traditional Liverpool songs many of which I didn’t know because they are local to his locale and not mine. Music does bind us all. And I must also say that singing hymns is one of my absolute favorite things to do – cleansing, uplifting and grounding all at once, I think.
