Today is a very special edition of Music Monday. This week my husband and I are celebrating our 20 year anniversary! That’s right, we’ve only been married 20 years, even though he swears it must be at least 43. (His favorite joke.)
When I started thinking about this post, I started coming up with a lot of songs. Music always holds memories for me. I didn’t want to feature ALL of that music here, so I set up a 20(ish) Songs for 20 Years over at Spotify if you want to see the full list.
It was tough to narrow it down, but here’s who made the Music Monday Anniversary Edition cut. Enjoy!
Round Here by Counting Crows
You may be confused by this first choice – it doesn’t seem very anniversary-esque. But Counting Crows is my husband’s favorite band. And this is one of my favorite Counting Crows songs. So it makes the top of the list.
Don’t Let Me Down by The Beatles
The Beatles are my favorite band. Here Comes the Sun is my favorite Beatles tune, but it was edged out by Don’t Let Me Down for this list.
See You Better by Paul Lfau
I discovered this song on Spotify last year, and it captured my heart. I love the lyrics of See You Better. They are right on.
What Would I do Without You by Drew Holcomb & The Neighbors
A decade goes by without a warning
And there’s still a kindness in your eyes
Amidst the questions and the worries
A peace of mind, always takes me by surprise.
I Only Want to be With You by Vonda Shepard
We danced to this song at our wedding. (Aw….)
Bonus: Ice Cream by Sarah McLachlan
My husband’s favorite food is ice cream. Making Sarah McLachlan the perfect ending for this week’s list. ♥
Rules from Lauren:
Every Monday share one or two of songs you’ve been enjoying lately. It doesn’t have to be a specific genre, new, or one of your favorites – just something you’d like to share with others. If possible, share a music or lyric video of the song and your thoughts on the song(s), artist(s), and/or music video(s).
