Silly Long Songs

I've been a fan of Betty Beguiles, a snazzy little style blog, for quite some time. She sweetly offered to host a little link up of love songs. So here are some of my favorite love songs.

Your Song - Moulin Rouge version
Josh and I memorized the words and danced to it at our wedding. It is rather a personal joke between us; I have blue eyes that sometimes look green when I wear green, and I gave Josh all kinds of grief the first year we were dating when he couldn't remember what color my eyes are. 

I first watched Moulin Rouge just before I met Josh and we started dating. That film and the musical score always reminds of Josh. So many of the songs from Moulin Rouge make my favorite love song list.

Danny's Song - Kenny Loggins
My dad was a big Kenny Loggins fan, so I grew up listening to him. This became my theme song when I was pregnant with Sean; Josh was still in school, he worked part-time, and my pregnant self was searching for a job. There was a lot of "we ain't got money, but I'm still in love with you honey" for a while

Your Man - Josh Turner
A favorite as newlyweds

Everything - Michael Buble
I remember listening to this song as we drove to our honeymoon destination.

Bubbly - Colbie Caillat
This song always reminds me of the warm fuzzy feeling of being in love. :)

I Won't Give Up - Jason Mraz
A recent favorite. I love the message, that we are worth the work it takes to work out the kinks and tough times to make a marriage last.

Check out other favorite love songs at Betty Beguiles.

  3. I'd never heard of Jason Marz before but I'll be looking him up, he has a lovely sound a bit like Jack Johnson who I love.

  4. Fun list Mary-anytime I hear or see anything Moulin Rouge I think of you and Josh :) Thanks for sharing. I wonder what my list would look like?
