My parents are visiting this week and music is always the centerpiece. Growing up I was surrounded by my dad’s music and his family’s musical talents. I have an aunt that I SWEAR sounds just like Barbra Streisand. Needless to say her talent was in demand for family weddings. I have fond memories of my daddy singing love songs in the car with that meaningful look on his face. He’s always been a sentimental guy and loves his love songs. I had him pull a list together for me this week. Enjoy.
A die hard Beatles fan I wasn’t surprised to see this at top of his list.
A desperate break up song by a family favorite - Jim Croce
Bobby Vinton - the classic 60s voice.
A great movin’ song!
The opening “groovy” instrumental on this song brings back memories of growing up.
The Vogues were one of my daddy’s favorites while overseas for Vietnam.
Yep. Breaking up is hard to do …
A song my mom and dad would dance to at their old stomping ground - Popular Point.
“People think a soul mate is your perfect fit, and that’s what everyone wants. But a true soul mate is a mirror, the person who shows you everything that is holding you back, the person who brings you to your own attention so you can change your life.”
— Elizabeth Gilbert
