Over my dead body

Friday, July 12, 2002

These are the 10 songs Carolyn R. Thomas of Thebes, Ill., wouldn't want to live without:

1. "Color My World" -- Chicago

I can get lost in the music of this beautiful song.

2. "We Can Work It Out" -- The Beatles

Brings back memories of my first serious love.

3. "Would I Lie to You?" -- Charles & Eddie

I love this song. Makes me happy when I'm sad. I play this song every time I am feeling down.

4. "He Stopped Loving Her Today" -- George Jones

The ultimate love song.

5. "November Rain" -- Guns N Roses

Brings back memories of a very special evening.

6. "How Great Thou Art" -- Elvis

He uses his beautiful voice to bring this song home to me. It gives me chills when I hear it.

7. "Sherry" -- The Four Seasons

My beautiful daughter is named Sherry. The song was popular before she was born.

8. "Bridge Over Troubled Waters" -- Simon & Garfunkel

Beautiful, haunting song. Has special personal meaning to me.

9. "Maggie Mae" -- Rod Stewart

I like anything Rod sings, but this song remains my favorite.

10. "Honky Tonk Women" -- The Rolling Stones

When this song comes on the radio, I feel like stopping my car and getting out and dancing. I don't, of course. I do, however, turn the radio up full blast. Will try to avoid your neighborhood when this happens.
