I did a lot of venting a couple of weeks ago about songs I like and songs I don't like (mostly remakes). And since I'm a bit of a music junkie, I thought it would be fun if we got a discussion started. Top 3 favorite songs of all time. Now, this go-round, I'm not asking for your top 3 praise songs (because you know I just can't narrow down my top 3 Third Day songs, let alone my top 3 praise songs by everybody), we'll do that another week. Hit that mainstream station (or that oldies station, because I recently found out that the 80s are the oldies now), and share.

My top 3 is pretty much always the same, and you can call me a geek because, believe me, when you see number one, you're going to scream "geek," especially since Newman on Seinfeld referenced the dude...

3) "Aubrey" by Bread. Okay yes, it's a total cheesy seventies song. And yet, for reasons unexplained, if I play it once, I have to go back and play it seven more times. Who can resist a line like, "We tripped the light and danced together to the moon"? It makes me want to write stories. Longhand. With my new multi-colored "real" fountain pens.

2) "Oh, Girl" by Paul Young. We've been over this one already.

1) Okay, I'm going to confess this out loud. Ya ready? My all time favorite song ever is... "Sailing," by Christopher Cross. More seventies cheese, I know. As a child of the eighties, I just can't explain it. As someone who has never sailed, I can't explain it either. I just know it takes me to a happy place. Maybe therapy could help me figure that out? Oh well, I guess I would have been happy at Newmannium, anyway.

Okay, so let's hear from you. Top 3 favorite songs. If I can confess Christopher Cross and Bread in the same post, surely you can do no less...

    Okay, I think I've got 'em... not in any particular order, but these are the 3 that keep coming to mind (all 90's country 'cause that's what I was raised on!).

    1) Terri Clark's Emotional Girl. This has been my theme song for years because every single line describes me to a T. Seriously, go listen!

    2) Faith Hill's Someone Else's Dream. This song came out when I was in 6th grade, and the CD was the first one I ever bought. Listened to that thing over and over and over every day after school. The whole album brings back memories, but that song was my favorite at the time.

    3) Garth Brooks's Friends in Low Places. :-) At the ripe old age of 8 (maybe even 7), this became my first ever "favorite song." I was totally hooked on country music at that point, despite the fact that I had no idea what it was talking about! LOL
