100 Songs

I've seen this at a couple of my favorite blog hangouts, so I thought I would list 100 songs that move me. They're not in any particular order. I'm sure I'll have a lot to say about some of them and not so much to say about others. But they're on the list because I like 'em. And it's my list. It's going to be tricky not including Christmas music...

1) One by U2. My all-time favorite song. All-time. I remember being in Spain when I heard this song for the first time. I was at a cafe and they were playing Achtung Baby and I fell in love with it. I love that there are so many diverse covers of it. A couple of my favorites are the Mary J. Blige and Johnny Cash versions.
"Love is a temple
Love a higher law
Love is a temple
Love the higher law
You ask me to enter
But then you make me crawl
And I can't be holding on
To what you got
When all you got is hurt"

2) Change The World by Eric Clapton. Especially from the Phenomenon movie soundtrack.
"And I can change the world
I will be the sunlight in your universe
You would think my love was really something good
Baby if I could change the world"

3) Refugee by Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers. A classic driving around song when I was in high school.
"We got some thin we both know it,
We dont talk too much about it
Aint no real big secret, all the same,
Somehow we get around it
Listen, it dont really matter to me
Baby, you believe what you wanna believe
You see, you dont have to live like a refugee"

4) Barefoot by kd lang. Soulful and haunting. Her voice is amazing. It was a goosebump moment when I saw her perform this on the Unplugged special.

5) You and I Both by Jason Mraz. There's just something about this song that makes me so happy inside.
Cause you and I both loved what you and I spoke of
and others just read of and if you could see me now
well then I'm almost finally out of.
I'm finally out of, finally, deedeeededede
well I'm almost finally, finally, out of words.

6) What I Like About You by the Romantics. It's my go-to happy song. Never ceases to make me cheer up and want to shake it for what it's worth! Bands used to play this at college dances and my friends and I would go nuts. Such fun memories about this song.

7) The Rainbow Connection by Kermit the Frog. I've always loved the wistfulness of this song. And I identified myself as one of "the lovers, the dreamers, and me." It was nominated for an Academy Award for best song in 1979.

8) No More Drama by Mary J. Blige. When I saw her perform this on Oprah, I about had a melt down. So full of emotion, so raw. Amazing.

9) Tell Me Something Good by Rufus & Chaka Kahn. The Funk. I love the funk. It used the guitar talk box to manipulate the sound, and was written by Stevie Wonder.

10) Imagine by John Lennon. My second favorite song. When it was re-released after Lennon's death, I was in high school and this song shaped my philosophy. The ideas have truly been a guiding force in my life. It has been covered more than 100 times.
You, you may say
I'm a dreamer, but I'm not the only one
I hope some day you'll join us
And the world will be as one

11) Save Room by John Legend. There's something so sexy about this.
This just might hurt a little
love hurts sometimes when you do it right
dont be afraid of a little bit of pain
pleasure is on the other side.
Let down your guard just a little
i'll keep you safe in these arms of mine
hold on to me pretty baby
you will see I can be all you need if you stay
won't you save, save

12) Drowning Man by U2. This is the song, from the album War, that cemented my fandom. I would listen to it over and over (on my walkman).
Take my hand
You know I'll be there
If you can
I'll cross the sky for your love.
For I have promised
For to be with you tonight
And for the time that will come.

13) Songbird by Eva Cassidy. It's a Christine McVie song that was on the Fleetwood Mac album Rumours in 1977. I loved the Fleetwood Mac version but Eva Cassidy moves me more.

14) Boomtown by David & David. When MTV played new music late at night, I heard this song and wowowow! I loved it and got the album right after. The whole album was so great but this song in particular stuck with me. I want to say it was mid-80s but I'd have to check.

15) Tell Her This by Del Amitri. A boyfriend used to make mixed tapes for me. When I lived in Ireland, this is one of the songs he sent me. Scrubs, the TV show, used this song. It's an awesome song. One of my students was going to compete in a local talent contest and I said this would be a perfect song for him. He won!

16) True by Spandau Ballet. A summer song. I can remember the radio DJ mispronouncing the band name and how we would mock it all the time.

17) Start Me Up by The Rolling Stones. This was a major work out song for me. It's my favorite Stones song, which was hard to choose because there are so many I love.

18) Steady On by Shawn Colvin. So many great songs in her catalog, but this is the first song I heard and her voice captivated me. She has several covers that I simply adore.

19) You Are by Wynonna Judd. (not an official video but you can hear it.) I had a long-distance relationship and this was our song.
It's in the way you love
It's in the little things you say
It's in the way you live
And give your heart away
It's in the chance you took
It's in the way you look at me
That sets you a world apart
And makes you who you are
And you are beautiful
You are

20) Train In Vain by the Clash. I love the Clash. I almost posted the Annie Lennox cover of this song, but there's something so... frustrated in this version.
Say you stand by your man
Tell me something I don't understand
You said you love me and that's a fact
Then you left me, said you felt trapped

Well some things you can explain away
But my heartache's in me till this day

21) Something So Right by Annie Lennox. This cover of the Paul Simon song is my favorite version of this song. I want to live in her voice.
They've got a wall in China
It's a thousand miles long
To keep out the foreigners
They made it strong
I've got a wall around me
You can't even see
It took a little time
To get to me

22) Invisible by Alyson Moyet. This was my theme song during my freshman year of college when I desperately in love with "Him" and he didn't even know I was alive.

23) Jump by Van Halen. Soundtrack to my senior year in high school. Oh my gawd, but the memories I have of riding around to this song.

24) China Grove by the Doobie Brothers. I had a babysitter in the 70s that used to play the Doobie Brothers alllllll the time. This is a song we would dance around to.

25) She by Elvis Costello. I saw Elvis in concert in London before he recorded this song. I'm a huge Elvis fan. And this is one of my favorites. My long distance boyfriend (mentioned in #19) used to sing this to me. And he couldn't sing.
May be the face I can't forget
A trace of pleasure or regret
May be my treasure or the price I have to pay
She may be the song that summer sings
May be the chill that autumn brings
May be a hundred different things
Within the measure of a day.

26) Forget You by Cee Lo Green. Oh great googly moogly but I adore this song. The whole throwback vibe and the cheekiness of it.

Yeah I'm sorry, I can't afford a ferrari,
But that don't mean I can't get you there.
I guess he's an xbox and I'm more atari,
But the way you play your game ain't fair.

I pity the fool that falls in love with you
(Oh shit she's a gold digger)
(Just thought you should know nigga)
I've got some news for you
Yeah go run and tell your little boyfriend

27) Vogue by Madonna. By far my favorite Madonna song. As I get older I get more into her. In the '80s I hated her. In the '90s I was intrigued. Now, I'm a major fan. And this song always makes me want to move. The rhythm is great for the treadmill.
Beauty's where you find it
Not just where you bump and grind it
Soul is in the musical
That's where I feel so beautiful
Magical, life's a ball
So get up on the dance floor

28) I've Been Thinking About You by Londonbeat. This song kicked off the 90s. Shi-pow-pow!
We must have been stone crazy
when we thought we were just friends,
'Cause I miss you, baby,
And I've got those feelings again.
I guess I'm all confused about you,

I feel so in love
Oh, baby, what can I do?
I've been thinking about you.
I've been thinking about you
I've been thinking about you
I've been thinking about you, shi-pow-pow!

29) Human Touch by Bruce Springsteen. I don't even know what to say about this song--it's sexy. And it's a great headphones song.
I ain't lookin' for prayers or pity
I ain't comin' 'round searchin' for a crutch
I just want someone to talk to
And a little of that human touch
Just a little of that human touch

30) Wait For Me by Hall & Oates. White soul. I really love Darryl Hall's voice on this song. I saw them in concert and was hoarse from singing along.
Midnight hour almost over
Time is running out for the magic pair
I know you gave the best that you have
But one more chance
Couldn't be all that hard to bear.

Wait for me please
Wait for me
Alright, I guess
that's more than I should ask
Wait for me please
Wait for me
Although I know the light is fading fast.

31) Finer Things by Steve Winwood. One of my really good friends was going through a difficult divorce and we used to sing this a lot. While drinking a lot. "And we'll drink our cup of laughter..."
While there is time
Let's go out and feel everything
If you hold me
I will let you into my dream
For time is a river rolling into nowhere
We must live while we can
And we'll drink our cup of laughter

32) SexyBack by Justin Timberlake. This song was popular the year I was hospitalized and they played it on the radio and on MTV/VH1 constantly. How do you not fall in love with it?
Dirty babe
You see these shackles
Baby I’m your slave
I’ll let you whip me if I misbehave
It’s just that no one makes me feel this way

33) Ain't No Other Man by Christina Aguillera. This song came out around the same time as SexyBack. I had a relationship what was promising at the beginning and this was kind of our song.

34) I Don't Feel Like Dancing by Scissor Sisters. I just love this song. Don't need a reason because it's my list.
But I don’t feel like dancin’
When the old Joanna plays
My heart could take a chance
But my two feet can’t find a way
You'd think that I could muster up a little soft-shoe gentle sway
But I don’t feel like dancin’
No sir, no dancin’ today.
Don’t feel like dancin’, dancin’
Even if i find nothin' better to do
Don’t feel like dancin’, dancin’
Why’d you pick a tune when I’m not in the mood?
Don’t feel like dancin’, dancin’
I'd rather be home with the one in the bed till dawn, with you,

35) You Shook Me All Night Long by AC/DC. In the early 80s the tough guys at high school would play AC/DC loudloudloud and I really fell in love with this song.

36) Closer To Fine by the Indigo Girls. One of my favorite concerts, a group of us went after graduation. This song, in particular, takes me right back to the intensity of our friendships. And the ball park at OOB. It was a great, great concert.
Well darkness has a hunger that's insatiable
And lightness has a call that's hard to hear
I wrap my fear around me like a blanket
I sailed my ship of safety till I sank it, I'm crawling on your shore.

37) Rio by Duran Duran. Neither the lyrics nor the video make much sense but they're so catchy and flashy they don't need to. This is one of my favorite road trip songs.

38) Higher Ground by Stevie Wonder. The sound of this song is just so funky I love it. I loved this song as a kid. Love all the covers of it, too, especially the Red Hot Chili Peppers.
I'm so darn glad he let me try it again
Cause my last time on earth I lived a whole world of sin
I'm so glad that I know more than I knew then
Gonna keep on tryin'
Till I reach my highest ground

39) Dancing With Myself by Billy Idol. Another of my favorite college songs. This was another one of our party songs. I can remember watching the video on MTV and all of us just going nuts.
When there's no-one else in sight
In the crowded lonely night
Well I wait so long
For my love vibration
And I'm dancing with myself

40) Bittersweet Symphony by The Verve. I can remember when I got this CD that I played this song over and over. The lyrics, the sounds of the music, the voice...
Well I never pray
But tonight I'm on my knees yeah
I need to hear some sounds that recognize the pain in me, yeah
I let the melody shine, let it cleanse my mind, I feel free now
But the airways are clean and there's nobody singing to me now

41) Safety Dance by Men Without Hats Oh, this song reminds me of my drama geek days. Our high school drama club traveled all over the state and New England for play contests and we'd sing and dance to this song anytime we had the chance. I can remember us lip synching to it on the bus with different people singing different lines.

42) Rescue Mission by Luka Bloom. What this man can do with a guitar is amazing. His songs are the soundtrack to my adulthood. I would love to see him in concert. I should add that to my bucket list.

43) Let's Dance by David Bowie is cool and sexy. Cool and sexy.

44) Silly Love Songs by Paul McCartney. I remember this song because my 5th grade teacher used to listen to it and she would play the record during our afternoon break. Or maybe it was during our music lesson, but she played this song and I remember how happy it made her and it is a happy song.

45) Cannon in D by George Winston. I feel especially tied to this song because it's one of the only memories I have of my mother's death and funeral. But it's not sad memories, it's more celebratory of her life. I used to be almost afraid of this song until I understood that it can be celebratory instead of mournful. This George Winston version is one of my favorites.

46) Lose Yourself by Eminem. This is the first time I listened to the lyrics of an Eminem song. It tells such a story. Of a life I can't relate to or understand.

47) I Need Love by Luka Bloom. I don't think I can explain why this song is on the list other than saying it's significant for a specific moment in time.

48) Moondance by Van Morrison. Seeing Van Morrison in concert was a real highlight of my life. It was an intimate setting and the songs were so personal. I felt like he was singing to me.
Can I just have one a' more Moondance with you, my love
Can I just make some more romance with a-you, my love

49) A Little Less Conversation by Elvis Presley. Elvis is King. Seriously.
A little less conversation, a little more action please
All this aggravation ain't satisfactioning me
A little more bite and a little less bark
A little less fight and a little more spark
Close your mouth and open up your heart and baby satisfy me
Satisfy me baby

50) Something by The Beatles. It was hard to narrow down a favorite Beatles song but this has always been a favorite of mine.
Something in the way she moves
Attracts me like no other lover
Something in the way she woos me

I don't want to leave her now
You know I believe her now

51) Let It Be by The Beatles. The lyrics.
And when the broken hearted people
Living in the world agree
There will be an answer, let it be
For though they may be parted
There is still a chance that they will see
There will be an answer, let it be
Let it be, let it be
Let it be, let it be
Yeah there will be an answer, let it be
Let it be, let it be
Let it be, let it be
Whisper words of wisdom, let it be

52) Need You Tonight by INXS. I think the video of this song means as much to me as the song itself. When I thought of this I thought of the video. It's just so cool. I remember going for walks and listening to this song.

53) What's Goin' On by Marvin Gaye. Even as a kid, I remember hearing this on the radio and feeling the passion of the anti-war lyrics. I didn't even know what war was, but I knew it was bad.
We don't need to escalate
You see, war is not the answer
For only love can conquer hate
You know we've got to find a way
To bring some lovin' here today

Picket lines and picket signs
Don't punish me with brutality
Talk to me, so you can see
Oh, what's going on
What's going on
Ya, what's going on
Ah, what's going on

54) Sexual Healing by Marvin Gaye. When I was in college we would play this song in the student lounge and dance around. Sometimes we would play it to annoy other people who were in the lounge and they would leave and then we could have the place to ourselves.
If you don't know the things you're dealing
I can tell you, darling, that it's Sexual Healing
Get up, Get up, Get up, Get up, let's make love tonight
Wake up, Wake up, Wake up, Wake up, 'cos you do it right

55) Have A Little Faith In Me by John Hiatt. There are so many wonderful covers of this song but having seen Hiatt in concert, I feel a real connection to his performance.
When the road gets dark
And you can no longer see
Just let my love throw a spark
And have a little faith in me

And when the tears you cry
Are all you can believe
Just give these loving arms a try
And have a little faith in me

56) Crazy Love by Aaron Neville. I can remember slow dancing to this version of Crazy Love and being crazy in love. Ah, to be young and in love. Even knowing it wouldn't last.
She's got a fine sense of humor when I'm feeling low down
And when I come to her when the sun goes down
Take away my trouble, take away my grief
Take away my heartache, in the night like a thief

57) Babylon by David Gray. I love everything about this song.
If you want it
Come and get it
Crying out loud
The love that I was
Giving you was
Never in doubt
Let go your heart
Let go your head
And feel it now

Babylon, Babylon

58) You Can Call Me Al by Paul Simon. This song reminds me of my best friend. And I can't explain why it means so much to me.
If you'll be my bodyguard
I can be your long lost pal
I can call you Betty
And Betty when you call me
You can call me Al

59) I Would Die 4 U by Prince. It's funky.
I'm not your lover
I'm not your friend
I am something that you'll never comprehend

No need 2 worry
No need 2 cry
I'm your messiah and you're the reason why

'Cuz U - I would die 4 u, yeah
Darling if u want me 2
U - I would die 4 u
You're just a sinner I am told
Be your fire when you're cold
Make u happy when you're sad
Make u good when u are bad

60) My Favorite Mistake by Sheryl Crow. I like the nostalgic feeling I get about this song. Because there are is a relationship that didn't last that was my favorite mistake. And we were able to walk away friends.
I woke up and called this morning
The tone of your voice was a warning
That you don't care for me anymore

I made up the bed we sleep in
I looked at the clock when you creep in
It's 6 a.m. and I'm alone

61) That I Would Be Good by Alanis Morrisette.
that I would be good even if I did nothing
that I would be good even if I got the thumbs down
that I would be good if I got and stayed sick
that I would be good even if I gained ten pounds

that I would be fine even if I went bankrupt
that I would be good if I lost my hair and my youth
that I would be great if I was no longer queen
that I would be grand if I was not all knowing

that I would be loved even when I numb myself
that I would be good even when I am overwhelmed
that I would be loved even when I was fuming
that I would be good even if I was clingy

that I would be good even if I lost sanity
that I would be good
whether with or without you

62) Building A Mystery by Sarah McLachlan. 90s girl power music. This song's imagery always stuck with me.
you live in a church
where you sleep with voodoo dolls
and you won't give up the search
for the ghosts in the halls
you wear sandals in the snow
and a smile that won't wash away
can you look out the window
without your shadow getting in the way
oh you're so beautiful
with an edge and a charm
but so careful
when I'm in your arms

63) Once In A Very Blue Moon by Mary Black. This is an album I picked up in Ireland and this song stuck with me.

64) You Gotta Be by Des'ree. I really love this song. It's so empowering.
You gotta be
You gotta be bad, you gotta be bold, you gotta be wiser
You gotta be hard, you gotta be tough, you gotta be stronger
You gotta be cool, you gotta be calm, you gotta stay together
All I know, all I know, love will save the day

65) Bitch by Meredith Brooks. Another anthem of the 90s.
I'm a bitch, I'm a lover
I'm a child, I'm a mother
I'm a sinner, I'm a saint
I do not feel ashamed
I'm your hell, I'm your dream
I'm nothing in between
You know you wouldn't want it any other way

66) Nightswimming by R.E.M. It is so hard to choose a song by R.E.M. because there are so many that speak to me. I remember chaperoning a student group and listening to this song in a mix I had, and wondering if these students would appreciate the song.
Nightswimming deserves a quiet night
I'm not sure all these people understand
It's not like years ago
The fear of getting caught
The recklessness in water
They cannot see me naked
These things they go away
Replaced by every day

67) Road to Nowhere by Talking Heads. This song was a college favorite--we played it on a road trip I took with a class. Laughing, singing and having a blast the whole trip.
We're on a road to nowhere
Come on inside
Takin' that ride to nowhere
We'll take that ride

68) One Thing Leads To Another by the Fixx. My sister gave me this album as a birthday present. I played it out. And loved it.
The deception with tact, just what are you trying to say?
You've got a blank face, which irritates
Communicate, pull out your party piece
You see dimensions in two
State your case with black or white
But when one little cross leads to shots, grit your teeth
You run for cover so discreet, why don't they:

Do what they say, say what you mean
One thing leads to another
You told me something wrong, I know I listen too long
But then one thing leads to another.

69) Tempted by Squeeze. Another band my sister introduced me to. And another favorite song of mine from the 80s.

70) Do You Really Want To Hurt Me by Culture Club. This is one of those groups that my friends and I mocked in their videos, but once we got listening to them we really liked their music.

71) Barely Breathing by Duncan Sheik. Definitely a favorite 90s song. I loved this album.
And I could stand here waiting
A fool for another day
I don't suppose it's worth the price
It's worth the price, the price
That I would pay, yeah yeah, yeah
But I'm thinking it over anyway
I'm thinking it over anyway

72) The Lion Sleeps Tonight by The Tokens. One of my childhood favorites!

73) Mr. Jones by Counting Crows. I really loved this song and used to put it on almost every mix I made in the 90s.
I was down at the New Amsterdam staring at this
yellow-haired girl
Mr. Jones strikes up a conversation with this black-
haired flamenco dancer
She dances while his father plays guitar
She's suddenly beautiful
We all want something beautiful
I wish I was beautiful

74) If Not Now by Tracy Chapman. Such an unusual voice.

75) Linger by the Cranberries. Another of the bands that I listened to over and over and over.
But I'm in so deep. You know I'm such a fool for you.
You got me wrapped around your finger, ah, ha, ha.
Do you have to let it linger? Do you have to, do you have to,
Do you have to let it linger?

76) Holding Back The Years by Simply Red. I don't even care that my European friends mock my love of Simply Red. I love what I love!
Holding back the years
Chance for me to escape from all I've known
Holding back the tears
Cause nothing here has grown
I've wasted all my tears
Wasted all those years
And nothing had the chance to be good
Nothing ever could yeah

77) Never Gonna Give You Up by Rick Astley. One of my favorite memories of Ireland is dancing at a club to this song, singing at the top of my lungs, with Dermot Curry--the tall redheaded Irishman. We had so much fun that night. It adds special delight to get RickRolled!

78) Faith by George Michael. Seems like all my favorite memories are from 1987. This song takes me back to a palce--a moment frozen in time. Good times, good times.
Well I guess it would be nice
If I could touch your body
I know not everybody
Has got a body like you

79) Freedom by George Michael. I love this video.
All we have to do now
Is take these ties and make them true somehow
All we have to see
Is that i don't belong to you
And you don't belong to me
You've gotta give for what you rake
You've gotta give for what you take
Heaven knows we sure had some fun boy

80) Tom's Diner by Suzanne Vega. An unusual a capella song that tells a story.
Oh, this rain
It will continue
Through the morning
As I'm listening

To the bells
Of the cathedral
I am thinking
Of your voice...

81) Morning Has Broken by Cat Stevens. Truly a lovely song.

82) I Feel The Earth Move by Carole King. A music teacher used to play Tapestry during our art/music class when I was in middle school. This was a favorite song of mine from the album.
I feel the earth move under my feet
I feel the sky tumbling down, tumbling down
I feel my heart start to trembling
Whenever you're around

83) Don't Let Me Be Lonely Tonight by James Taylor. One of my favorite concerts, at the ballpark at OOB. Outdoors, sun was going down, beer was flowing, and we sang every song. My friends and I had such a magical time.
Do me wrong, do me right. Tell me lies but hold me tight.
Save your good-byes for the morning light, but don't let me be lonely tonight.

84) Tender Is The Night by Jackson Browne.
Between the darkness on the street
And the houses filling up with light
Between the stillness in my heart
And the roar of the approaching night
Somebody's calling after somebody
Somebody turns the corner out of sight
Looking for somebody
Somewhere in the night

85) Heart of Gold by Neil Young. A friend introduced me to Neil Young and we would listen to him for hours--just enjoying the lyrics and some good beer.
I want to live,
I want to give
I've been a miner
for a heart of gold.
It's these expressions
I never give
That keep me searching
for a heart of gold
And I'm getting old.
Keeps me searching
for a heart of gold
And I'm getting old.

86) Case Of You by Joni Mitchell. I almost forgot about this song. But remembering the friend from #85--he used to play this song over and over, too.
Just before our love got lost you said,
"I am as constant as a northern star."
And I said, "Constantly in the darkness,
Where's that at?
If you want me I'll be in the bar."

87) Someone To Lay Down Beside Me by Linda Ronstadt. Linda, Linda, Linda... you magnificent woman.
And they'll say
Woman sweet woman
Please come home with me
You're shining and willing and free
But your love is a common occurrence
Not like love that I feel in my heart
Still you know that may be what I need

88) Dancing In The Dark by Bruce Springsteen. This song reminds me of my freshman year at college. Sitting around the radio station and just... being there.

89) This Must Be The Place (Naive Melody) by Talking Heads. Because it's a great, great song with many great covers.
Home is where I want to be
Pick me up and turn me round
I feel numb - burn with a weak heart
(So I) guess I must be having fun
The less we say about it the better
Make it up as we go along
Feet on the ground
Head in the sky
It's ok I know nothing's wrong . . nothing

90) You're My Home by Billy Joel. He performed this in concert and I was moved to tears. Such a brilliant song.
When you look into my eyes
And you see the crazy gypsy in my soul
It always comes as a surprise
When I feel my withered roots begin to grow
Well I never had a place that I could call my very own
That's all right, my love, 'cause you're my home

91) Leaving On A Jet Plane by John Denver.

92) Evergreen by Barbara Streisand. I have sung this at a couple of weddings. It's such a pretty song.
Love soft as an easy chair
Love fresh as the morning air
One love that is shared by two
I have found with you
Like a rose under the April snow
I was always certain love would grow
Love ageless and evergreen
Seldom seen by two
You and I will
make each night the first
Everyday a beginning
Spirits rise and their dance is unrehearsed
They warm and excite us
'Cause we have the brightest love
Two lights that shine as one Morning glory and midnight sun
Time... we've learned to sail above
Time... won't change the meaning of one love
Ageless and ever evergreen...

93) Nobody Does It Better by Carly Simon. This might be the song that began my love affair with movie soundtracks.
Nobody does it better
Makes me feel sad for the rest
Nobody does it half as good as you
Baby, you're the best

94) Forever And For Always by Shania Twain. It's a cross-over country/pop album. I really like this song.
'Cause I'm keeping you
forever and for always
We will be together all of our days
Wanna wake up every
morning to your sweet face--always

95) Wide Open Spaces by Dixie Chicks. I think this was their debut album. I really like this song.
She needs wide open spaces
Room to make her big mistakes
She needs new faces
She knows the high stakes

She traveled this road as a child
Wide eyed and grinning, she never tired
But now she won't be coming back with the rest
If these are life's lessons, she'll take this test

96) Who Knew by Pink. This is the song that made me realize there's a whole lot more to Pink than attitude.
Remember when we were such fools
And so convinced and just too cool
Oh no
No no
I wish I could touch you again
I wish I could still call you friend
I'd give anything

97) Say by John Mayer. This song stopped me in my tracks when I heard it at the end of the movie The Bucket List.
Have no fear for giving in
Have no fear for giving over
You'd better know that in the end
Its better to say too much
Then never say what you need to say again

Even if your hands are shaking
And your faith is broken
Even as the eyes are closing
Do it with a heart wide open

98) Ain't No Cure For Love by Jennifer Warnes. Another walking song. A fantastic Leonard Cohen song.
I loved you for a long, long time
I know this love is real
It don't matter how it all went wrong
That don't change the way I feel
And I can't believe that time's
Gonna heal this wound I'm speaking of
There ain't no cure,
There ain't no cure,
There ain't no cure for love
I'm aching for you baby
I can't pretend I'm not
I need to see you naked
In your body and your thought
I've got you like a habit
And I'll never get enough
There ain't no cure,
There ain't no cure,
There ain't no cure for love

99) When I Fall In Love by Celine Dion and Clive Griffin. A great cover from the soundtrack to Sleepless In Seattle.

100) Ain't No Sunshine by Bill Withers. A favorite song.
Ain't no sunshine when she's gone
It's not warm when she's away.
Ain't no sunshine when she's gone
And she's always gone too long
Anytime she goes away.
