So Hold Onto The Ones Who Really Care

These were picked by Shari!!! I promised a prize!!

Shari is one of the sweetest people I know! She is also one of the most amazing writers. She puts so much feeling and heart into everything she writes, and gives the most amazing descriptions. She probably doesn't know what a huge inspiration she has been for me and my writing. I admire her so much! She recently went on the coolest road trip, and was nice enough to include all of us via pictures! Thanks Shari!

26) Def Leppord- Pour Some Sugar on Me

Alexander Davidson is the FIRST person I think of when I think of this song. All the good times we've had at Mercy dances and parties, making fools of ourselves during this song. I miss my best friend!!!

38) Heart- Alone

One of my favorite songs to sing along to because I get to act all diva-ish and belt out the words. It's also a beautiful song once you get past my horrible "belting" voice, haha. It relates to my current "situation".

Cover version is I go with the "untouchable" Carrie Underwood, Carly Smithson, Allison Iraheta, or Gina Glocksen? I'm going to go with Gina. She deserves some love, plus...I really, really think she has improved immensly since Idol and can't wait to see where she goes from here! She gave me goosebumps when I heard this live!

40) Hanson- MMMBOP

AWW YEAH. You know you love this song more than life. Okay, seriously. Most people just see this song as a cheesy pop song by that one band that used to be as popular as the Jonas Brothers. It's much more than that, actually. It's about having someone or something one minute, and the next it could be gone, so hold on to the ones that really care. It is really an amazing song if you listen to the lyrics.Zac wrote this song as a young chicken. They are so talented and SO dedicated to solving world problems. Love these boys!!

95) The Temptations- My Girl

I feel like the past few days I've had a few songs that remind me of my daddy- well this is another one. Brings me back to the days of slow dancing with him while standing on his feet! Besides that, this song is just adorable. I wish more songs came around like this again :) Plus, "My Girl" is one of my favorite movies!!

How can I not find a good cover of this song?

96) Taylor Swift- I'm Only Me When I'm With You

Say..this is my song for all of YOU!!! You guys make me who I am today, I'm only me when I'm with my besties!!! Thank you to all of you for all your support!!

Okay, so first of all ... are you TRYING to make me cry with what you wrote?!? You are just too sweet! You have no idea how much what you wrote means to me, or how much it - and YOU - inspire me. I admire you more than you know, and I absolutely love to read everything you write because there's such honesty and sincerity in it. Aww, and you're welcome - thank you for looking at the pictures! And, of course, thank you, thank you, thank you so very much for what you wrote.

I'm excited that I chose "Alone." I LOVE that song!! I've always loved "My Girl" too. It's such a sweet Daddy-Daughter song! I have to tell you, you have such a talent for pulling the meaning out of every song ... it's evident whenever you post one of these. It's a talent to be able to truly understand music like that - and you are super talented!! :-)
