30 Days of twenty-four

Day 24: Make a playlist to someone, and explain why you chose all the songs. (Just post the titles and artists and letter)

I made a playlist for my Daddy. I miss him so much and wish he was still here to give me advice and to be a part of my boys' lives. :o(

You Raise Me Up - Josh Groban - this song has such meaning for Mom and I. To this day, I am transported back in time to the weeks leading up to my Dad's death whenever I hear it. My brother-in-law, Mark, sang this song at his funeral.

I Will Always Love You - Whitney Houston - This was my father/daughter dance at my wedding. Although it is really meant for lovers, the words make perfect sense for a father giving away his daughter as well.

Wind Beneath My Wings - Bette Midler - This song was my sister's father/daughter dance at her wedding and the words are perfect for a daughter to sing to her Daddy.

To Where You Are - Josh Groban - A song about losing someone, but knowing they are just a breath away. Gorgeous, moving song.

Comfortably Numb - Pink Floyd - My Dad LOVED Pink Floyd and I think Comfortably Numb was his favourite.

Paradise by the Dashboard Light - Meatloaf - My Dad used to BLAST this song in our apartment when I was about 6 years old. Every time I hear it, I think of those happy days.

18 'Til I Die - Bryan Adams - Dad heard this song for the first time while he was battling leukemia. Until he got really ill, he truly was 18 years old in his mind. Pin It
