I was listening to my phone today while doing the dishes of all things. My wife and I were bullshitting (yes I cuss too) about this and that when Jim Croce pops up with Time in a Bottle. I adore this song. It exemplifies just how I feel about my darling wife, she really is my better half in oh so many ways. So as a random song turned the conversation, this post idea came to mind. I would list, and embed my top 10 songs that bring my wife to mind.
The problem is this however, if I were to embed all 10 songs… well you guys would probably flip the web page to another station all together before even reading, listening, or sharing. So, the solution is simple to me. I will embed the top 3 (3 sounds like a great number to me for some reason), and just list the rest.
To ‘spice’ it up a little bit, I will include a reasoning as to why these songs have a special meaning to me and why I feel they relate to my wife and I. Without further ado I give you top 10 love songs that remind me of my wife.
My #1 song:
Kryptonite by 3 Doors Down
This is ‘our’ song. This is not your typical love song, and probably won’t be viewed as such by the band themselves. But this is ‘our’ song. If we correlate it to how Gollum feels about the One Ring, that would suit us just fine, because we feel the exact same way.
My #2 song:
Time in a Bottle by Jim Croce
I feel this way about my wife wholeheartedly. I love her and she is the woman of my dreams and the answers to all my prayers. I truly want to spend eternity with this woman.
My #3 song:
Another Night by Real McCoy
This song relates to how the nights being 5200 miles apart felt. It was always another night to deal with. It was always lonely in bed while… the hardest and longest 6 months of my life. More on that one in a different post.
Now for the rest:
#4: If I Said You Had A Beautiful Body by the Everly Brothers
This song is in here because when I asked my future wife this very question, she answered NO.
#5 Help by the Beatles
Because that’s all she does. She helps me to keep my feet on the ground no matter how bad it gets.
#6 Love Is On The Way by Saigon Kick
A beautiful love song, and it reminds me the first time I actually saw her face to face, not on the web cam, but in the airport when we almost walked right past each other
#7 Send Me An Angel by Real Life
I so much wanted her to be my personal angel, I do believe I cried when she became it.
#8 Always On My Mind by Elvis Presley
And there she always is, on my mind and in my heart.
#9 Take My Breathe Away by Berlin
And she does so well. I feel that this is a staple love song for the two of us.
Last but not least,
#10 Lollipop by Framing Hanley
When it first came out we loved it. So much so that we would text and call each other in accordance to the lyrics of the song x)
