10 on the 10th

Meredith has started a new carnival, 10 on the 10th. Since she just got an iPod Shuffle (a girl after my own heart), I thought I'd share 10 songs that are on my own:

1. I Try by Macy Gray. Hands down, my favorite song of hers (pretty easy, since I only like one other). I can't help but cranking it up & singing along.

2. I Won't Dance by Frank Sinatra. Every time I hear this one, I remember Mel Gibson's scene in What Women Want...and swoon.

3. Forever You Reign by Nicole C. Mullen. My favorite praise song now, and possibly of all time.

4. Hallelujah, I Love Her So by Ray Charles. Listen, and you'll know why.

5. A Man Ain't Made of Stone by Randy Travis. I just can't help myself, I love that man.

6. Straight Up by Paula Abdul. I know, she's gotten a little flaky in her old age. But the girl could bring it in the 80s (do you remember who was in the video?)

7. Picture to Burn by Taylor Swift. Reminds me of being a teenager in my small town, and the boys I loved who drove trucks. (My man does let me drive his.)

8. When the Saints by Sara Groves. The prayer of my life.

9. Made to Love by Toby Mac. It reminds me of my purpose.

10. Mercy by Duffy. Just for fun.

As you can see, my musical taste is all over the place. Personally, I think that only makes me more interesting ;-)

I need to add some of those songs! (Especially that Paula Abdul one for my workouts!)

Great list! Thanks for playing along!

My musical taste is all over the place too. Yesterday I loaded everything from Bon Jovi to Fernando Ortega to HSM1,2,&3!

I love song lists ... I'm going to check out the Nicole C. Mullen one for sure! (And, love me some Randy Travis, too ... forever and ever, amen). :)

Popping over via Mer. Love your list. Variety is good...very good. And let me tell you how my heart smiled when I read about Paula Abdul...she could bring it.

Thanks for playing.

How fun for me to get new song ideas! I lurve me some eclectic music mix, too. I was raised with my mom and grandma, so I knew every thing from Willie, Waylon and the Boys to Jimmy Buffet, to Bruce Springsteen, to Bob Dylan, to the Beatles, to swing music of my grum's era. The appreciation for praise music has come much later, but Sara Groves and Mercy Me are among my faves.

Is Emilio in the video with Paula?

I don't know any of these! I must get to the ITunes store. (I love Taylor Swift - when she won the grammy and said "This is so much better than prom!", I thought I would die laughing.)

Melissa, what a great list! I have to admit that I don't know several of these, but all the more reason for me to check them out on iTunes! I love anything Frank Sinatra - that voice, that style gets me everytime - I swoon too! :)

It is so nice to meet you!

How fun! I'm debating listing will be much to my husbands chagrin ;)

I'm gonna go check out that Macy Gray song now!

I used to LOVE "I Try"! I haven't heard that in so long! I think I'm going to dig that CD out from the abyss and listen to it today!

Love the Macy Gray song too. My taste is all over the place as well. Everything from U2 to Willie Nelson!

Any Bee-Gees on there? ha!

Elizabeth said...

Made to Love and When the Saints are two of my favorites. I know every word.

I went and watched the "Straight Up" video and the only one I recognized was Arsenio Hall. Anyone else??

Love that Sarah Groves song...may have to download it myself.

And Paula Abduhl? That does indeed make you "more interesting"!

Love you, girl!
