    ....of the romantic kind.


    Quit laughing. /forums/images/icons/smile.gif



    Going to make a CD for my wife's birthday Sunday and I'm tired of the same old songs. Need some newer stuff, only I dont listen to newer stuff very much. Country, rock, alt. NO RAP please. R&B maybe. And stuff I can download for free off the net. Now any favorites? New and old...

    Hmmm... well couple of songs that do it for me are "Iris" by Goo Goo Dolls and "Angel" Sarah McLachlan.... I also like...

    "Valentine" by Martina McBride
    "It's Your Love" Tim McGraw & Faith Hill
    "I Do" Paul Brandt
    "The Man In Love With You" George Strait
    "When You Say Nothing At All" Allison Krauss
    "I Want To Stand On A Mountain With You" Savage Garden

    That's to start... I got more but need to go buy some cough syrup so when I get back I will bombard you with more /forums/images/icons/smile.gif

    Might have to use another service... Morpheus isn't working that hot since <a target="_blank" href=http://news.com.com/2100-1023-851330.html>this</a>..... you might have to try some of the other services out there like Aimster, WinMX, LimeWire or AudioGalaxy....... if she likes country like I do I have a list a mile long of good songs /forums/images/icons/smile.gif

    Yep, she likes country. newer stuff, where I listen to the old songs. She likes both.. She said something about a song that went like this....There you are, I've looked for you forever and a day... any idea what this one is?

    Maybe it's this?

    WHERE'VE YOU BEEN (Kathy Mattea)

    Claire had all but given up
    When she and Edwin fell in love
    She touched his face and shook her head
    In disbelief, she sighed and said,
    "In many dreams I've held you near
    Now, at last, you're really here."
    "Where've you been?
    I've looked for you forever and a day
    Where've you been?
    I'm just not myself when you're away."

    He asked her for her hand for life
    And she became a salesman's wife
    He was home each night by eight
    But one stormy evening, he was late
    Her frightened tears fell to the floor
    Until his key turned in the door.
    "Where've you been?
    I've looked for you forever and a day
    Where've you been?
    I'm just not myself when you're away."

    They'd never spent a night apart
    For sixty years she heard him snore
    Now they're in a hospital
    In separate beds on different floors

    Claire soon lost her memory
    Forgot the names of family
    She never spoke a word again
    Then one day, they wheeled him in
    He held her hand and stroked her hair
    In a fragile voice she said,
    "Where've you been?
    I've looked for you forever and a day
    Where've you been?
    I'm just not myself when you're away.
    No, I'm just not myself when you're away."

    Yeah it sounds like the Kathy Mattea song Aaron said... only other song that comes to mind if that's not it is "There You Are" by Martina McBride (I love this song!)....

    Also another one is "Breathe" by Faith Hill..... and I dunno how much of a Wynonna fan she is but the song "Only Love" is one I like... there's also Sara Evans two songs that are good "I Could Not Ask For More" and "There's No Place That Far"..... look into Colin Raye too... he has some great lovie dovie songs! /forums/images/icons/smile.gif

    I also love Kenny Chesney's "Me and You"

    Brooks and Dunn's "My Heart Belongs to You" It's sorta a spanishy sounding song and he says 'my heart belongs to you" in spanish. I love that one too...
    Uh..
    *singing in a horrible voice* "And I.......will always love youuuuuOOOOooo IIIII" just kidding...that song pisses me off../forums/images/icons/laugh.gif


    Can't forget Randy Travis' "Forever and Ever Amen" &lt;---best love song of all time!

    Anything by Faith Hill has been over played IMO, so I wouldn't go there....(she's got good stuff, but they've flogged a dead horse with her stuff *rolls eyes*)

    I'll think of some more...

    You better move quick!
    What did you do/want to make up for? LOL
    Kidding
    Check out... Good Morning Beautiful, that new Martina McBride one about the family, dang what's that name?!
    I forgot the all time #1 I do, by John Michael Mongomery!
    Good Idea though, let me know how it works.
    You can pull up a seach and look fro radio station feeds, downloads for broadcast. I found it once, but it has the songs that they broadcast available for download
    Hope it helps.

    Are you talking about "I have been Blessed" by Martina McBride? Terri Clarks "Now that I found You" That was Rob's and my wedding song. OOOps forgot to mention that this is Robs wife. "You won't ever be Lonely" by Andy Griggs (I LOVE HIS ALBUM)

    not so mainstream............

    try 'carolyn's fingers' by cocteau twins...........

    if you can decipher a single lyric in this song, you're way better than me- but it's beautiful.

    Check out Caroline Dawn Johnson...she has a couple of real good tunes. "You are" is a great tune.

    Can't remember who sings it but there's another one I'm thinking of called "Shiver"...
