have spent more time than i should on this.......but - - have narrowed it down to two, one of which is wordless, "ode to joy" , i know there are at least two - - the one i am referring to is the one whose organ notes are an intertwining spiral going up to the heavens. the outburst of happiness it inspires makes one of the two. and although there many songs i dearly love - - - the second is "how great thou art" a hymn of inspiration, uplifting to the extreme.

I've got so many I can't even count. I'm a music fanatic. But I'll have to go with Bach's Jesu, Man of Joy's Desiring and Mozart's Horn Concerto in E-flat Major. Being a horn player and all, it's one of my favorites. And then there's anything by John Williams. Or Aaron Copland... and this is just the Classical list.
I'm hopeless, I can't pick a favorite song.

One of my favorite songs is by David Wilcox. It is entitled "Burgundy Heart-shaped Medallion". The lyrics (it's short) are:
If I had a spell of magic. I would make this enchantment for you. A burgundy heart-shaped medallion With a window, that you could look through. So that when all mirrors were angry At your faults, and all that you do. You could peek through that heart-shaped medallion.. And see you, through my point of view.
When I first heard this song, I cried. Finally, the words that I had been trying to give my wife since the day we met....

Now, you are asking for the impossible!! If it came down to one selection over all others, for me it would have to be the entire Carmina Burana by Orff, performed by the Phila. Orch. w/ Ormandy conducting or performed by Los Angeles w/ Micheal Tilson Thomas conducting.

Still Lovin' You.

I have so many but when it comes to it it has to be one that reminds me of the greatest guy you'll ever meet (my father) it is called Dangerous by David Wilcox. It goes: I'm dangerously romantic When the leaves are coming down When the air was clear this morning And the frost still on the ground When I wore those cozy woolen gloves To bicycle into town Well of course I'd want to fall in love And finally settle down But I'm dangerous Be careful with me 'Cause I could fall for you Much too easily I'm usually cool, I like to be free But I'm dangerous right now Be careful with me I'm hopelessly sentimental When the winter comes a storm When the snow is on the mailbox And the sidewalks all are gone But the fire in the woodstove Can keep me so nice and warm That of course I'd want to live with you And share this simple home It must just be the season When the spring is in the air And I'm acting like a child again And frankly I don't care But I found these purple flowers To weave into your hair And of course I'd want to marry you And travel off somewher

Without a doubt, it would have to be "My Uncle Used to Love me, But She Died," by Roger Miller.
