My Favorite Song

"Wonderful Tonight" by Eric Clapton

I was lucky enough to grow up in a home with parents who LOVED music and exposed me to so much classic rock. My mom and I would go to the store on days when a new *tape* would come out (Doobie Brothers anyone? remember this was the mid-to-late 70s) and I always loved singing along in the car.

Some of my faves are Cream, Led Zeppelin (duh!), The Eagles, Jimi Hendrix, Bad Company, Janis Joplin, KISS, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Velvet Underground, and of course Eric Clapton. (and this list could go on and on....)

When the hubby and I decided to get married, I knew that I wanted "Wonderful Tonight" to be the song we danced to. There's just something I have always loved about that song and now it holds an even sweeter memory for me.

Plus "Beth" by KISS wouldn't have fit the situation very well....

I'd love to hear what your favorite song is and what memory is attached- just leave a comment to join in.

I love this song!

I grew up listening to country music, which I HATE!!! And unfortunately, anytime there's something going on in town, they ALWAYS play country music. I've learned to bring my headphones to drown it out.

I haven't heard the song 'Beth' except for once or twice. Everyone I know just raves about how beautiful it is but I didn't really care for it all that much.

My fave song ever is Don't Stop Believin' by Journey. Since I can remember I have known all the words. My parents had the album and I guess they played it a lot. It has also played mysteriously at important times in my life- for example when I was in the aisle at David's Bridal picking out my wedding dress.
