Favorite Songs on My iPod

These songs are not necessarily my favorite songs, but they are songs that I listen to repeatedly and sing along with. I removed all Amy Grant songs from the list, because I've pretty much loaded 95% of all of her songs onto my ipod.

  1. A – You're Adorable – Dean Martin
  2. Agnus Dei – Third Day - I like this songs so much, it played at my wedding
  3. All the Way – Frank Sinatra
  4. Am I blue? - Ethel Waters
  5. Annie's Song – John Denver - so many memories for me
  6. Anticipation – Mandy Moore
  7. Anything You Can Do (I can do better) – Dean Martin
  8. Awesome God – Rich Mullins
  9. Baby, it's Cold Outside – Dean Martin
  10. Baby, Now that I've Found You – Alison Krauss - I love to sing along with Alison Krauss, and I really don't know why I don't have more of her songs
  11. Blessed – Rachel Lampa - very stirring
  12. Come Fly with Me – Frank Sinatra
  13. Could I have this Dance? - Anne Murray - if I had been allowed dancing at my wedding, I would have used this as the first dance song for DH and I; not original, I know, but it's a great waltz
  14. Danny's Song – Kenny Loggins - this song played on a mental loop for me when I was pregnant with BB
  15. Deeper than the Holler – Randy Travis - twangy and sooo country, but I like his music for some reason
  16. Did You Feel the Mountains Tremble? - Passion - not quite as good as Mordecai's Courage's version, but it reminds me of the old Vine in Macon and many fond memories
  17. Don't Know Much – Aaron Neville with Linda Ronstadt - I'm not really an Aaron Neville fan, but I do like singing along
  18. Don't Take Away My Heaven – Aaron Neville
  19. Dust in the Wind - Kansas - love this song! so pretty to me. I really like this type of music
  20. Fearless – dc Talk - also played this at my wedding; while the song is actually about a person's relationship with God, I felt it was also appropriate for my relationship with DH
  21. Forever and Ever, Amen – Randy Travis
  22. Friends – Michael W. Smith - I was initially surprised when I made this list that I don't have more Smitty on my iPod, until I remembered that most of the music that I like of his is on cassette tape
  23. Fun, Fun, Fun – Beach Boys
  24. Godsend – DC Talk - another wedding song; we walked down the aisle after the ceremony to this song
  25. Gomer's Theme – Third Day - really like this song, and actually like the whole Conspiracy No. 5 album, which I think is the last I ever listened to Third Day
  26. He's Alive – Don Fransisco - I remember this song from my childhood, and I find it very moving
  27. Heat Wave – Ethel Waters - great, fun song
  28. Held – Natalie Grant - I had to pull over and cry the first time I heard this song, which was right before I knew I was pregnant with BB; I'll always associate this song with my early pregnancy with him, which was nerve-racking to me
  29. His Eye is on the Sparrow – Jessica Simpson - don't like the singer, but I do like her version of this song
  30. I Can Only Imagine - MercyMe - another song from my wedding; while this is a song about heaven, it also spoke to me during my engagement about what I dreamed my married future would be like
  31. I Get a Kick Out of You – Frank Sinatra - no idea why I like this song
  32. I saw the Lord – Dallas Holm - another classic from childhood
  33. I Will be Here – Steven Curtis Chapman - yet another wedding song; the best man sang this during the ceremony
  34. I'd Rather Have Jesus – Alison Krauss - my favorite Alison Krauss song (yes, I know it's a hymn)
  35. I'll Fly Away – Bryan White - I've heard that this song is theologically unsound, and I don't know why it is, nor do I care
  36. I've Got the World on a String – Frank Sinatra
  37. I've Just Seen Jesus – Larnelle Harris and Sandi Patti - shouldn't this song be sung every Easter?
  38. If I were a Carpenter- Bobby Darin - I think this song is kinda romantic
  39. Jesus is Lord of the Way I Feel – Don Fransisco - wow! another childhood fav! I remember singing this on the swing set at recess time (I was a strange child)
  40. Leaving on a Jet Plane – John Denver - another song full of memories
  41. Linus and Lucy - Vince Guaraldi Trio - if my phone was circa 1997, I would have this as my ringtone
  42. Lover Man – Billie Holiday
  43. Mambo, Italiano – Dean Martin - try to listen to this and not move
  44. Moonshadow – Mandy Moore - I don't know what this song is about, but I like to sing along
  45. My Sweet Lady – John Denver - can you tell I was sad when he died?
  46. Never Been Unloved – Michael W. Smith - this song really meant a lot to me when I was in high school and struggling with my self-worth
  47. Oh, the Stone (was rolled away) - Replica - Replica is a now-defunct local band; my husband grew up with one of the band members. This song is actually a hidden track on their last CD.
  48. One for my baby (and one more for the road) – Frank Sinatra
  49. Perhaps love – John Denver with Placido Domingo - when DH and I renew our wedding vows (Lord willing), I'm walking down the aisle to this song
  50. Rainbow connection – Kenny Loggins
  51. Return to Me – Marty Robbins - so beautiful
  52. Return to Pooh corner – Kenny Loggins
  53. Rise again – Dallas Holm - say it with me now, yet another childhood classic!
  54. Seventy-six Trombones – The Music Man - I was in this play in college, and I used to know every line of dialogue and music in the play
  55. Someone to watch over me – Frank Sinatra - I like Linda Ronstadt's version better, but the CD wouldn't allow me to place songs on my iPod
  56. Stormy weather – Ethel Waters - I like Michael Crawford's version better, but I got rid of that CD years before I got my iPod
  57. The way you love me – Faith Hill - I wanted this song at my wedding (it's one of "our" songs), but my mother told me it was inappropriate
  58. They Can't Take That Away From Me – Billie Holiday
  59. Time to Say Goodbye – Sarah Brightman - I've loved this song from the first time I heard it played
  60. Wouldn't it be Nice? - Beach Boys - another one of "our" songs
  61. Yankee Doodle Dandy – George M. Cohan - big George M. fan
  62. You Can't Stop Me from Loving You – Ethel Waters - this song has some great lines
  63. You put this love in my heart – Keith Green - this song must be played loudly, possibly on repeat

  1. Finally! Sombody that likes Amy just as much as I do. And Frankie, dear Frankie. And Dean. Although I don't have any Amy or Dean on my iPod. Oh, that's right, because my sister loaded all of HER favorite music on there. I'm American Idoled out.
