One of my favorite songs (I have many 'favorites') is by Bon Jovi. It's called 'Just Older'..."I like the bed I'm sleeping in, just like me it's broken in. It's not old...just older. Like a favorite pair of torn blue jeans, the skin I'm in is alright with me. It's not old...just older".

I am not old, but this song will make me sound old, I LOVE the song, "I Can't Help Falling In Love With you". I think Elvis was the first to sing it.

Elizabeth said...

Great blog candy. You have a great blog - thanks for sharing and inspiring. I don't think I can pick my favorite song, but my current most listened to is In Christ Alone.

Lisa H. said...

I love reading your blog to see what sond title you have entered each day. You're question is HARD, I listen to all types of music and have tons of songs I love to listen to. My list could go on for days, but I stick to your question and only list 1. I am a huge Sarah McLachlan fan and love pretty much anything she has done. Song for a Winters Night is one of my all time faves!

Chris (cdjkssss on SCS) said...

What a tough question! One of my all-time favorites that always makes me sing out loud (and that's not easy to do, as I know what kind of singer I am!) is I Am a Rock by Simon & Garfunkel.

Allison said...

Gosh...you had me stumped on that post title today! My fav song is "In Your Eyes" by Peter Gabriel. It was my wedding song (that, and I cannot get the idea of John Cusack and his ghetto blaster out of my head!).

Thanks to you and Julee for the fun candy!

Tara Macfarlane said...

Well, Happy Blogoversary! Wow that's a lot of hits! I love your work! I lurk around often! tehehe. What awesome candy. Thanks for the chance!

Andrea Vernagus said...

Happy Blogoversary and congrats on the numbers of hits...makes my almost 9k look pretty pathetic! Favorite song is a tough one...it changes all of the time, but right now I would say I would say "Black Horse and a Cherry Tree" by KT Tungstall.

Colleen said...

Shut Up! What an awesome opportunity!

Thanks to you AND Julee.

Maria Gurnsey said...

Wow, congrats on all the hits and your blogaversary. I don't know what to pick for a fave song. It changes daily. Today is Danity Kane's Damaaged. My daughter loves to sing it and there fore I love it to. (She's only 2 and it's adorable)

Lorien Clark said...

I just recently found Mindy Smith. She did a cover of Dolly Parton's Jolene a couple of years ago and I loved it. Well when American Idol had the Dolly week I remembered that and went looking for her CD. She has a few great songs on it. One is called "Come to Jesus". I'm not what you would call a real religous person, and I don't listen to Christian music, but she has some beautiful songs that happen to mention God and Jesus and I like them.

Jody L. said...

Congrats on your hits!
One of my favorite songs is Gravity by John Mayer, I never get tired of it.

Trese said...

CONGRATS!!!!

Bonnie said...

WOW! 80,000 hits -Impressive! I would be hard pressed to have just ONE favorite song, but I'll choose "How Great Thou Art"
Thank you for sharing your talent with us!

Janine said...

It has to be a Celine Dion one - The Power of Love is one of my favourites but she does so many good ones.

leenda said...

Whoa, 80,000 hits! Congrats! My favorite song is Amazing Grace.

cardcrazy said...

I love any song that my 2 or 4 year old boys are singing with their sweet little voices. Their current favorites are "Old MacDonald" and "Oh Susannah!"

-Krissy

Deb Neerman said...

One song?!? Choose one? Man, talk about a tough question, g/friend!!

Right now, I'm playing the Wild Hope CD ... so, I guess I'll choose "Gardenia" ... this changes daily ... or more often, LOL!

Congrats on the blog-stone!!

~Big Hugs, Deb

dini said...

Yay for you! My favorite song...I always go back to "Hold Me Jesus" by Rich Mullins...it's an oldie...but the line that always gets me..."I'd rather fight You for something I don't really want than take what You give that I need" always nails me.

Dina

Glorie said...

Congratulations on your blog accomplishment! My favorite song is "In My daughter's Eyes"

Ying said...

My favorite song is "The Greatest Love of All" by Whitney Houston.

Latisha said...

Congrats on 80,000 hits and your blogaversarry. I have to give you background info on my favorite song. I was born in 1976, so by the late 70's early 80's disco was still kind of in. Michael Jackson was huge! My first 8 track and my first tape was the Off the Wall album. {first vinyl album was the jackson 5} I love equally "Don't stop 'til you get enough" and "Rock with you" by Micheal Jackson. I know he is a wierdo now, but those are my favorites.

...I wanna rock with you {all night} dance you into day {sunlight} I wanna rock with you {all night} We're gonna rock the night away...

Shannon said...

Congratulations on your blog! I discovered it today by visiting the gallery of SCS (again) and by going to one blog and then another and so on.....I found you! Awesome site! Well the lyric/title is awesome. It makes me think of how I feel when I am with my 5 year old (sans the hardwood floor)! "Blessed" by MM is not my favorite song though. I have too many favorites but to pick one right now I'll say "Can't You Hear Me Knocking" by the Rolling Stones!

Becky Carafa said...

Hmmm, let's see, my favorite song (right now) is A Paler Shade of White (?) sung by Sarah Brightman.
Awesome candy, thanks for the chance to win, or should I thank Julee, lol?

NancyJo said...

Who wouldn't want a chance at candy?? Congrats on one year and 80000!! I love your daily blog entry titles - you get me thinking about the song - well, if I can figure it out anyway. I'm not nearly that good at lyrics. But my favorite song is currently Bless the Broken Road. My DS sang it for a solo at his HS concert this spring. Love the song, love that boy even more.

Crap, I forgot to tell you my favorite song of the moment :-)

Carol said...

Congratulations! You really do have a great blog and I love reading your song lyrics each day to see if I know the song. I love too many songs to have a real favorite, but one that comes to mind is I Can Only Imagine.

chelemom said...

Congrats on your hits!!! Your picking on my daughter's 13th birthday....would make a really nice day for me....her! I am totally loving the new song by Trace Adkins....but of course can't remember the name of it at the moment....

kearneykrafter said...

My fav song right now is Last Dollar (Fly Away) by Tim McGraw. My 3yo and I sing it together and it's almost as cute to hear him sing it, as it is to hear McGraw's girls' singing at the end of that song! THanks for the chance at some delicious blog candy and congrats on your blog hits!!

andrea murdock said...

Michele F said...

Awesome sets! Thanks for offering them. Though I listen to lots of songs, my favorite remains "Godspeed" by the Dixie Chicks. It became the lullaby that I sing to my son. He is now 7 and we sing it together. Hopefully, when he gets older he will play it at his wedding!

Congrats on the very successful blog!

Michele

Regards, Lizzy

Janet said...

Gosh, I like so many songs. But my all-time favorite has to be the song that my Grandma used to sing to me when I would visit the farm. "You are my Sunshine". My grandma couldn't carry a tune in a bucket, but she was always happy and would sing, especially when doing the dishes. She would put me on a chair next to her at the sink and sing while we did dishes. Then when I had my children I would always sing this song, too. There you have it. Thanks for the chance to win some great stamps.

Kristi Reynolds said...

Congrats on the hits, and thanks for the chance to win. I have 2 faves actually both by Casting Crowns, a contemporary Christian band. They are "Praise You In This Storm" and "East To West". Very encouraging music!

Jessie/knightrone said...

That is too funny, I just did the same thing for my blog candy!!(Fav and least fav song) I would have to say my favorite song is I Can Only Imagine by Mercy Me, that and right now I am obsessed with Jordin Sparks and Chris Brown's No Air.

Darsana said...

Shannan,

Congrats to you. I have recently started visiting your blog linked from Blogabella, and I love your vivid colors and your design style. It has become one that I check everyday I am on the computer and I have even gone a bit into the archives. Fabulous job. My favorite song recently is one my daughter wrote a few years ago when she was 9 called "I'll Shine on You" but my all time favorite song is "My Girl" by the Temptations, cause my daddy used to sing it to me and although I don't remember him doing that specifically, I have always loved the idea of him doing that. Congrats again and I'll be back.

Mary said...

Congrats on your Blogaversary! I love your Blog and Love your titles each day with song lyrics!
