Plum Dozen – Favorite Songs – #12
OK Sydney and Trey...here they are. Daddy's 12 favorite songs of all time, counting down from number 12 to 1.
Why am I doing this? I guess it's a passion project. Maybe one day you'll be talking about me with your wives or husbands and you'll be able to tell them a little more about me because I've chronicled it all here for your convenience. Or maybe you won't talk about me at all. That's OK too. (But you better talk about me). Just in case you do...I've archived as much as I can for your browsing pleasure. You're welcome.
This project was really hard because there are SO MANY good songs out there! I was afraid the songs I chose would be reflective of what I was listening to in recent weeks so I've come up with some essential criteria for the songs to make it on my list.
In order for a song to make it on the list, it has to be at least 10 years old. That should give the song enough time to earn its way onto the list. For example: I love the Justin Timberlake 'Can't Stop the Feeling' song but it's so new it just doesn't qualify.
Mama used to make fun of me because when I find a song I like, I listen to it over and over again. And I don't mean at different times in the day or whenever I get in the car, I mean I play it, rewind it and play it again right away. Over and over again.
So I definitely took the replayability factor into consideration.
I've been keeping a list of all the songs I think might make it onto my top 12 over the past few weeks. I added some and removed some, and I think I've come up with the final 12, although the order may change at the last second. I've definitely got my #1 song tho.
Keep in mind, these aren't the songs I think are the best 12 songs ever made, they're just my personal favorites. And some of them have special meaning to me because they've been part of our lives. You'll see what I mean.
So here we go....
Saturday Night Fever soundtrack
I don't know what Barry Gibb is even singing for 75% of this song but it doesn't matter because when it comes on it's time to dance. I can remember a couple times when it was 3 or 4 am and I was in the workshop sanding crates and Night Fever came on. The sander got put down cuz it was time to boogie like Tony Manero.
