ON MUSIC ~ He Loves Me, He Loves Me Not...



Edition #39
Thirteen Things about CHRISTINE -
and her selection of songs to fall in love to...


Christine of Romantic Crush Junkies has been kind enough to fill in for us this week while we're on our road trip vacation - she is obviously a romantic and we thought she would be perfect for this topic. So get ready to become all mushy, nostalgic and in the mood...


1. My Heart Will Go On( Titanic) — Celine Dion: The 1997 Academy Award winner for Best Dramatic Score, James Horner's Titanic was the first soundtrack to reach the No. 1 slot on the Billboard charts in two decades. It also seemed to rival the Big Mac in sales for the year. And what can we say about Celine Dion's "My Heart Will Go On" - would "ubiquitous" suffice? (Amazon.com)

2. Tears In Heaven — Eric Clapton: This song is one of Clapton's most successful, reaching #2 on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart in the U.S. The song also spent three weeks at #1 on the American adult contemporary chart in 1992. (Wikipedia)

3. Un-Break My Heart — Toni Braxton: Braxton topped the Billboard 200 with her 1993 self-titled debut album and continued that streak with her second studio album Secrets, which spawned the number-one smash hit "Un-Break My Heart". (Wikipedia)

4. I Will Always Love You — Whitney Houston: This song was written by American singer-songwriter Dolly Parton in 1973, who first released it as a single in 1974. American singer Whitney Houston's 1992 version of the song became one of the best-selling singles of all time. (Wikipedia)

5. Raining On Sunday — Keith Urban: Lyrics by Randy Foster and Darrel Brown. Originally released in 2002.

6. I Melt — Rascal Flatts: Lyrics by Gary Levox, Lee Mobley and Neail Thrasher. Originally released in 2002.

7. Have I Told You Lately That I Love You — Rod Stewart: Lyrics by Van Morrison. Re-released and mastered just this past January.

8. Vision of Love — Mariah Carey: Written by Margulies/Carey. Originaly released in 2001.

9. Hopelessly Devoted To You — Olivia Newton John: Written By John Farrar. Originally released on the Grease Soundtrack in 1978.

10. Faithfully — Journey: Written by Peter Cox, Richard Drummie, Kevan Peter and George Martin Page. Originally released in 1983.

11. Keep on Loving You — REO Speedwagon: This American rock band grew in popularity in the Midwestern United States during the 1970s and peaked in the early 1980s. This power ballad appeared on the group's most commercially successful album, Hi Infidelity, which also included the hit "Take It on the Run," a song that peaked at number five on the U.S. charts. (Wikipedia)

12. More Than A Feeling - Boston: American rock group that was as well known for the lengthy periods between its albums as for its unique heavy metal–pop sound. The original members were Tom Scholz (the only member not from the city of Boston - he is a buckeye), Brad Delp (who died in 2007), Fran Sheehan, Barry Goudreau, and John (“Sib”) Hashian. (Encyclopedia Britannica)

13. Your Body Is A Wonderland — John Mayer: Written by John Mayer. Originally released in 2004.

In case you were wondering, of this list, The Bumbles are partial to Rod and Boston.

I must have a cold, dark, heart because the only one that I would attempt to listen to is Boston! The others make me cringe!

I actually DID fall in love to "Have I Told You Lately." It was "our" song. We broke up, but I hope he's happy wherever life took him.

Great list! You filled in admirably for The Bumbles.

"When a man loves a woman!" I also like The Righteous Brother's You Lost that Loving Feeling, but I guess that's for falling out of love.

Honestly, this was the toughest list I had to put together. There were so many amazing songs. Chopping it down to thirteen had me biting my nails.

I'm also a huge Journey, Boston, Chicago and James Taylor fan. So this list only skimmed the surface.

Hmm..could there possibly another list in the works for next week?;-)

Thanks every one for the warm welcomes!
