15 Melodies

Tonight I've been playing songs here on the laptop while I await inspiration for the latest writing challenge. Here are 15 of the ones I've listened to most this evening: (Wondering why I'm sharing? Me, too. If you don't want to know, don't read, silly.)

The Campfire Song Song by SpongeBob Squarepants (Makes me laugh out loud)

The Best Day Ever by SpongeBob (I can't listen to it without picturing my son running around the living room with his arms in the air just like SpongeBob did in the movie. It's a total crackup.)

Teardrops on My Guitar by Taylor Swift (This song gets me for some reason. I guess it's because I can really remember feeling like that.)

Hot Dog! by They Might Be Giants (This is the theme song from Mickey Mouse Clubhouse and we danced to it with JoJo from JoJo's Circus and Jun from Little Einsteins when we were at Disney World. Plus, it's just really catchy.)

Before He Cheats by Carrie Underwood (While I consider myself an Okie through-and-through, I am not a Carrie Underwood fan, but I do like this song. It just says "Ooh I'm angry" and I like that.)

I Melt by Rascal Flatts (When he says "Silently preparin' to love on you" I just about melt. Hearing my man say he's wants to "love on" me.....le sigh)

Don't Know Why by Norah Jones (Don't know why.)

Lost In Your Eyes by Debbie Gibson (Because every now and then I still think about his eyes and how I felt that summer.)

To Be With You by Mr. Big (Ahhh.....memories)

Everything by Michael Buble' (Le sigh, indeed. He is one sexy Canadian.)

My Immortal by Evanescence (I love the absolutely angst and loneliness in voice in this song.)

Quando, Quando, Quando by Michael Buble' (Quando is Italian for "when". To paraphrase what Stacie once said, "Right now, you sexy thing. Get over here!")

Girlfriend by Avril Lavigne (I only listen to it for the line that says she's precious and the princess. Because that line is awesome.)

My Little Girl by Tim McGraw (Because I have to remind myself daily how quickly they grow up.)

If She Were Any Other Woman by Buddy Jewell (Oh to have my husband sing this song to me. Well, maybe not literally sing it to me....but maybe like a dedication on Delilah or something. That'd work just as well.)

We have very similar tastes! I do love me some Rascal Flatts and definitely Michael Buble! And that Taylor Swift is just adorable!
