It is summer, so I am gonna lighten things up for a while. Sure, if something comes along that does not fall into the weight loss surgery or fibromyalgia category, I will likely post about it, but for now I am going to try and keep it light for a while. Last post I praised two people who are often on the receiving end of criticism. Actually a lot of things can be learned from these two people. They are not the ‘wrong’ people some think. They handled social situations with more eloquence, grace and Christianity than anyone else I have seen. So instead of criticizing them, I praised them. So again, THANKS MOM AND DAD! MUCH could and should be learned from you guys! This is *all* I am saying on this subject. I just wanted to give a bit of further explanation and explain as I was trying to be my Uncles voice since he has much to say but very limited access to the internet. Nuff said….. SUBJECT NOW CLOSED.
Now, on to some FUN FUN FUN! MUSIC! Plato said, “Music is a moral law. It gives soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, and charm and gaiety to life and to everything.” Life would not be life without music. It was a while back when I started thinking what are the best songs ever? (In this I mean, of course, contemporary songs…. not classical, songs that are 100’s of years old… songs written in the 1950’s up). Now, there are two ‘official’ contemporary Christian songs on the list, but in my heart of hearts they HAVE TO, MUST be there. I am not a ‘closet Christian’, so I listed them. Also, of all bands, a song that, if you listen close (once I get there), could at the very least, be defined as spiritual. There are SO SO SO many. It is tough. However, I sat with my list and finally came up with what I consider the top 25 songs along with several Honorable Mentions. I will start with #25, move to #1, explain why I think this song deserves its place in the “Kelli Glover Best Ever Song of Fame”. Then I will do the Honorable Mentions. I have around 8 honorable mentions though I may take a few off because I wanted to keep it at 5-6. I would love to hear from others what some of your all time favorite songs, of all time, are. This will take several posts and there may be some brief interruptions for other topics. But what fun. And remember! I would LOVE LOVE LOVE to hear from you what you think!!!!!
I will do the top 25 songs in reverse order:
Song 25 is an oldie if ever there was one. But it makes me melt every time I hear it. If it is on, I grab Paul and slow dance in the middle of the living room. It is one of the most romantic songs ever. And after finding the you tube video, I must say the lead singer was pretty hot too! But never fear, I always and forever only have eyes for Paul.
So, number 25:
