Songs I love to sing with him

Music is a big part of my life. Always has been, always will be.  Lucky for me that the same can be said for the hubbs: he loves and appreciates a wide range of music and we’ve introduced each other to our favorites.

After a long week at work, or just a day at home doing house stuff, we enjoy time together with a tune playing in the background… could be outside, could be inside.  Doesn’t matter. There are many that get us singing along but these are the ones I love to sing with him:


To Love Somebody … the Bee Gees. (Not too much beats the harmonic perfection of the Brothers Gibb)


I’d really love to see you tonight … England Dan and John Ford Coley (Takes us back to our 8 month engagement with 6 states separating us)


And, of course, the song he chose for us to dance to at our wedding…Something in the way she moves .. James Taylor. (He chose it and that’s enough for me).

Everyone has that song they love: what’s yours?


P.S. – Hubbs and I have known each other 20 years & today’s our 19 year wedding anniversary. Happy Anniversary sweetie!

  1. Happy Anniversary! What a sweet post…always good to share music tastes! My husband and I love classic rock, the old standards (anything by Frank, Bing, Dean, etc) and newer musicians like Jack Johnson. We love to have music at dinner, with candles, even if it’s just a regular day, ordinary meal…makes it special.

    Sounds like you know how to mark the moment! Thanks for sharing the wedding photos!


  2. Congratulations!

    I think ours is “Why Can’t I Breathe?” (whenever I think about you) — we discovered love late in life and it was such a revelation.

    • Thank you for sharing & yes it’s wonderful to have love especially later in life when we appreciate it! Cheers! MJ

  3. Happy Anniversary! May God bless you with many more. Enjoy all genres of music. Country gospel and vintage ’50’s is favorite. Love your blogs.

    • Thank you LeRoy; I hope He does bless us with many more. I love country gospel too, especially when Elvis (my all time favorite) sings it. Cheers! MJ

  4. Aw, look how beautiful you guys are! Happy Anniversary.

  5. Loved the music. Congratulations on your anniversary. My hubs and I – prior to becoming engaged – walked through the museum of Country music in Nashville and heard this by Webb Pierece (Slowly). It is a moment I won’t forget. I don’t know if the link will work. In any case, happy anniversary!

  6. It did work; thank you! I love those old classic crooner songs, they take me back to days in my mom’s country kitchen. Good stuff. 🙂

  7. Awww, I love this post! Happy anniversary, MJ 🙂

  8. Happy Anniversary. I hope you celebrate with dancing (to James Taylor…my favorite) 🙂

    • Thank you and we did! We decided not to go out but instead pick up food to go from Applebees & hang out in the basement listening to our favorite tunes. It was a perfect evening.. Thanks for your kind wishes, MJ

  9. Awww… Happy Anniversary!

    I’m the singer and music fanatic in this marriage. (Not that I sing well… at all. I just love to.) And sadly, we don’t have a song. I hate his music and he hates mine.

    • Oh no!! That would be difficult for me as I’m the one always researching it (and playing it). Thanks for weighing in Terri! MJ

  10. Happy Anniversary!!!!!

    At our wedding, my Wife and I danced to Alan Jackson’s “Red on a Rose.” It is still our song.

  11. MJ,
    I just wanted to let you know that I really like your thoughts; especially this one. It’s nice to hear a woman’s perspective. Thanks again.
    Sincerely, John

  12. Happy Belated…just got to this. I always enjoy your posts. They make me think.
