Friday Favorites: Old Songs I'll Probably Always Love

Here are some old(er) songs I'll probably always love.  I'm not even really sure how far back you have to go to consider a song "old" but here we go!

1.  Sweet Caroline - Neil Diamond
This song is just one of those you have to stop and sing along to, but more than that Sweet Caroline reminds me of a very tentative, extremely brief relationship I had with some guy I crushed on for years.

2.  The Longest Time - Billy Joel
Another song that is impossible not to sing along to.  I love the poppy, barber-shop sound of this song.  Billy Joel is one of those artists who have crossed a few generations of music and was able to remain some-what relevant.

3.  Free Falling - Tom Petty
This song will forever remind me of sitting over at my cousin's house while my mother and her friends played guitar.  This was one of the songs I learned to play on guitar pretty quickly because I kind of wanted to be just like her at the time.

4.  Stairway to Heaven - Led Zeppelin
Speaking of my cousin; that same cousin lost her mom to cancer a few years ago.  Stairway to Heaven was her favorite, and she would listen to it in repeat - so this one is also forever embedded on my mind.  (And now on my blog)

5.  To Make You Feel My Love - Garth Brooks
If I'm completely honest, any song by Garth Brooks would fall on this list, but this love song in particular is a favorite.  It has always just stopped my heart and made me believe that love is beautiful, and possible and real.  I recently got to see Garth in concert; it was on my bucket list, and had been sing I was about 14, so to finally get to realize this dream was an extra special treat!

BONUS:  One of the best music videos ever.  I love it!  And to bring my blog back to books once again, I present to you Tom Petty as the Mad Hatter!

Thank you for joining me today!  Once again, I have to give credit where credit is due.  My Friday Favorites is based on Creative House Blog's own Friday Favorites blog and link-up.
