Love Songs

I send my wife a Love Song every Monday. A short email, with the song as an mp3 attachment, to remind her how special she is and how much I love her. On Monday because that’s the hardest work day of the week. Seems like the best time for a happy diversion.

This started back in September of 2006. Over the last 8+ years I’ve sent 555 songs from over 300 different artists. It’s expanded from just a song and an “I love you” to include the song’s lyrics and some type of “I love you” image.

The most frequent artist has been Frank Sinatra with 11 songs, The Beatles with 10 and Neil Diamond with 7. You might think that finding that many Love Songs would be difficult, but it’s really not, since I’m always listening to the radio, Pandora or Amazon Music and always seem to find something new, or something old, on a regular basis.

The first song was “You Shouldn’t Kiss Me Like This” by Toby Keith. The second was “When You Say Nothing at All” by Alison Krauss. Both remain among my favorites, which also include “Bless The Broken Road”, “Leather And Lace”, “Fields Of Gold”, “Unforgettable” and “Feels So Right”. The full list is below.
