We thought this would be a quick and easy ‘throw some songs on a list’ thing, but we actually ended up doing it more formally. We each came up with a list of songs, then alternated playing them for each other. We picked a lot of songs with memorieeeees attached and it was fun to reminisce and awesome when the other person would come up with something you hadn’t thought of in forever.
(I almost left off Fly Me To the Moon! I've loved that song forever! So much so that we danced to it for the first dance at our wedding!)
Now, just so you know, my taste runs toward cheesy love songs in the country pop genre. Thomas even let me put one of my all time favorites, Bless the Broken Road, on the list.
When You Say Nothing At All was a last minute addition, after I watched Notting Hill last week. (Man, I am a sucker for that movie.) Cheeseball as the song is, I just love it. I also find it especially appropriate because Thomas is a do-er and while he does still say he loves me, he also shows it constantly with no words at all. I realize the song isn't so much about doing without saying anything, more just looking at each other and not needing words, but whatever.
Songs I recommend if you're making a playlist of your own: Then (Brad Paisley), I Won't Give Up (Jason Mraz), Wanted (Hunter Hayes). They're pretty sappy, but that's the way I like 'em.
