So, okay I'm obviously not doing the Blog Everyday in May blogchallenge, but several of my real life and bloggy friends have taken the challenge.  

Today's topic is: 5 songs - Five songs or pieces of music that speak to you or bring back memories.  Well, you know me and music! So, I thought I would join in, just for today....and I'll probably break the rules.  ONLY 5 songs?  

A song I could listen to over and over especially when I'm feeling down...don't ask me why? :

Carolina in my Mind by James Taylor

Lullaby for my three golden haired, blue eyed babies: 

Close To You by The Carpenters

Reminds me of my dad and childhood:  

My parents must have listened to all kinds of different music, because I remember listening to 45's of Abracadabra, Private Eyes, Dolly Parton's I Will Always Love You, American Pie, Jeremiah was a Bullfrog, Bad, Bad Leroy Brown, Ruby, I Love a Rainy Night, Lesson in Leavin', all kinds of church music and Southern Gospel/Bluegrass, Hallelujah Square....

Songs that bring tears to my eyes as I long for the day...:

Finally Home by Mercy Me


When I Get Where I'm Going by Brad Paisley and Dolly Parton

Most of the songs from my past that bring back memories are kinda slow and melancholy... 

Here's a couple of current favorites just to perk you up a bit: 

She's Got the Honey by Mat Kearney 

Long Way Home by Steven Curtis Chapman 

Starts with Me by Tim Timmons

See I told you,  I'd end up breaking the rules and I barely got started.
