Top Two Tuesday - Top Two Favorite Songs

This week’s Top Two Tuesday was fun for me.

I’ll readily admit, I’m not a music person. It’s not that I don’t like music, because seriously? That’s weird. It’s just that I don’t keep up on who is hot, who is so-over and who is jail-bait.

Ok, maybe that last one, but it is totally directed at you Mr. Taylor Lautner.

What was I saying?

Oh right, favorite songs.

What it boils down to is this.

I know what I like. I know what I don’t. I may not know who sings it, but you can guarantee that I’ll be rocking along with it {to the upmost annoyance of my husband} if it strikes my fancy.

Here are my two favorite songs:

1) Ants Marching by Dave Matthews Band

Seriously, how great is it to have this pumping on the first sunny day in Central New York after the longest of long winters?

It is the first song I play at top volume on that odd spring day that comes after the thaw – windows down, fingers tapping, singing as loud as I can {and babbling at that part that I can NEVER figure out what they are saying}.

2) At Last by Etta James

When we were planning our wedding we didn’t have a huge emphasis on music. We knew that we wanted to stay away from “traditional” but still wanted it to be beautiful.

This song was one of the only songs we chose that we 100% wanted. I walked down the aisle with my Gramp and Dad at my side towards my soon-to-be husband.

To this day, it still makes me smile.

What are your Top Two Favorite songs?

I'm going to have to say that picking my top two songs would be pretty hard. Because I listen to songs over and over and over again, until I don't like them any more. And plus it depends on my mood. But I guess if I had to pick, currently, it would be "Beautiful, Beautiful" by Francesca Battistelli and "King of Anything" by Sara Bareilles. Ok sorry for the long comment :)
