Monday's Music Moves Me ~ Bill and My Songs



Welcome to a Monday's Music Moves Me, the fantabulistic music meme hosted by me, my dearest of friends Dolly from XmasDolly, Larry from Cakeblast and Callie from Jamerican Spice and the wonderful Stacy from Stacy Uncorked. This week's theme is FREEBIE WEEK!

This week I chose to showcase some songs that have special meaning to Bill and I for many reasons. Some are because they were popular when we were dating or just because the words have special meaning.

These first two are by one of Bill and my favorite singers. The first is a song that was "our song" when we first started dating while we worked together and we would try and find each other in the store whenever it came over the PA system. Or Bill would just page my name when the song came on.....

The Power of Love ~ Celine Dion (we were lucky enough to be AT this show in Boston)

This next song was one of the songs that we danced to at our wedding.....

Because You Love Me ~ Celine Dion

This next song is the first song Bill and I ever danced to in 1995 and even though he doesn't like to dance and I find it hard to because of my back, whenever we are somewhere and this song plays, he will dance with me because he loves me.....

Wonderful Tonight ~ Eric Clapton

This song was the song we danced to first at our wedding... I just LOVE the words.....

I'll Always Be Right There ~ Bryan Adams

Wow, you are so lucky to have seen Celene Dion live! My parents saw her in Las Vegas and thought she was amazing.

You chose some lovely and very romantic songs. Great choices!

Best wishes,

What lovely classic love songs you shared this week! I loved the memories you shared with each. So sweet! Wonderful Tonight is definitely one of my favorites too.

Thanks for the MM shout out! :-)

I never really cared for Celine Dion but I'll leave it on the radio because my husband does like her, which I find strange but hey, to each his own!

I love many of Celine's songs. She was my oldest daughter's favorite singer when she was a teenager.

Check it out….

Awesome choices....I am a big fan of Bryan Adams and I love Eric Clapton as well. Not a big fan of Celine however I do love the first song.

Okay, finally something I've heard. Love your choices, and what a power house Celine Dion is. Have a great day, and already following you (and I'm checking everyone to make sure I am this time).

Thanks for sharing such special songs with us. It is nice to know the meanings of the songs to the blogger! I always forget how beautiful Celine Dion's voice is and then I listen to one of her songs! Oh, and I love that Eric Clapton song!!
