Thursday's Top Ten

Top Ten List

Be sure and go by Beth's....hey, why don't  you pick your own Top Ten!

Ten top song favorites…are you kidding me?!

I love music!  I love the memories music invokes.  Music is my “time-machine” transporting me back in time.  Music is a gift and I enjoy most of the different types.  I think I could fill ten pages with favorites, instead of ten songs.

All that up there.....before this sentence.....I wrote a few nights ago.  My original plan was  to pick two songs from each of the different types of music I enjoy.....scratch that plan!

I actually thought this would be the easiest list Beth has come up with.....NOT!

As I begin going through our massive music collection, I realized my taste in music has changed.  I don't know when it happen, only what I once loved, I still enjoy, but it no longer speaks to my heart.
What I picked really surprised me!

(no Doris Day~still love Sentimental Journey, no Chuck Berry, no Carpenters, no Simon & Garfunkel, no Rod Stewart, no Reba, no......okay, you get it!)

So without anymore fanfare
my list.

  1. Amazing Grace
  2. Always on My Mind, Willie Nelson (I can't believe he is 78!)
  3. Beer For My Horses,  Toby Keith (It makes me smile!  Everything Toby does makes me smile.)
  4. In My Life, the Beetles
  5. Hero by Enrique Iglesias (Because honey-hunk plays it for me)
  6. Anything recorded by Selah especially Bika Mono Ve/It Is Well With My Soul and His Eye Is On The Sparrow
  7. How Great Thou Art (by Vince Gill & Amy Grant ~ They do it as an instrumental and it is like applying a sweet balm to your soul.)
  8. Blessed Assurance ~ by anyone!
  9. Classical Gas (Classical guitar, played by Mason Williams)
  10. I Can't Help, Falling In Love ~ Elvis (who else?!)
  10.5   Dixie Carter's, I Shaved My Legs for This?  (Well, it makes me laugh out loud!)
Hope you enjoyed my list!  Okay,  I had to cheat a little....

(Sorry, Blake and Dwayne....maybe next time!  Love you guys!)

~ Honorable Mention ~

(I can't stop!  Beth has created a monster.)
Be sure and come back tomorrow for Fearless Friday!  
In the meantime, please keep
Taylor in your prayers!  


  1. What a fun list. Makes me think about what my top 10 favorites would be. And THAT makes me think about lots of 'top ten' lists one could make...I see this could get way out of hand!!! lol

  2. That is a GREAT list! I love the ones you mentioned! I wound up doing a Top Ten list of music I listened to in my teens for my journey blog and I'm planning to do 10 of my current Christian favorites on Faith Walk. Just too many awesome songs out there! But ... listening to Joan Baez and Bob Dylan today is making me a little wistful. Maybe I should have saved it for another time?

    And ... Cranberry Morning, we do a Top Ten (different topics) every week. Come join us! Music was a toughie (to limit) but they've all been fun! :)

  3. I too love the memories music brings! You've got some good songs on that list!!! Lots of fun ones :)

    Have a happy weekend!

  4. I have had a hard time coming up with this list! I listen to Christian music to get me thru my day, but I love Willie Nelson so much! I love so many old songs, not much new! I have always loved the Beatles & Rod Stewart....I will continue to work on my list!

    (I am thinking you & I might have the same CD, because of your #2 & #3!)

    Loving your honorable mention....that is a great one!! ;)


Thank you for taking the time to comment! It is always a joy to hear from you.
