Top Tune #1

Since I have no original ideas of my own, I've decided to do this. (Click on the link, and stay awhile. It's a really cool place.)

For those of you who are too lazy to click on the link, I've decided to post/link to my favorite songs here on my blog (one at a time, and in no particular order). Whenever I feel like it. Until I run out of favorite songs. Because I love music and how it can tell a story about a person.

So, here's the first one.



Pachelbel's Canon in D by Slovak Chamber Orchestra

So boring, right? WRONG! I walked down the aisle to this song (this very version, actually - and I still maintain it's the best version ever) when I got married. (I'm still kind of surprised that I picked something so traditional.) This song is heavy on my mind tonight because we put Charlie in his swing and one of the music options was "Canon in D."

It felt very much like things had come full circle even though we are living in a more linear fashion. (I have no idea how else to word that sentence, which makes me feel pretty stupid right now. Would you like a side of lamesauce with that? And really, did I just say "lamesauce"? Fuck my life.)

And speaking of my wedding, I finally edited some photos from our anniversary last week. So maybe there's an anniversary post in me yet...

One of my favorites too. I used to daydream to my God-parent's children play it when I was younger. Good pick, can't wait for the rest

Hey! I walked down the aisle to this song too. I also had it playing when I was in labor with Lil Miss. I have to admit, I haven't listened to it in so long. Thanks for posting!

Love this song, just gave me chills listening to it here. I also walked down the aisle to it as well ;)

that's one of my father's faves. i'll be booging down the aisle to it because of him. it's better than "That's the Way (uh uh) I Like it"

I love this idea! I'll look forward to future music posts from you.

My girls walked down the aisle to this (different version) and that was when I just about lost it in the back of the church. It obviously has some good memories for me, too. :)
