Our Theme Songs

I saw a really fun post on my friend Allison's blog.

Anyone who knows me, knows that I'm a HUGE music lover.  I always relate songs to things in my life which then builds memories, so for a fun post the question is "what is your theme song?"

I have a few for Michael, but my favorite is probably "Wonderful Tonight" by Eric Clapton. Whenever it comes on the radio, I instantly think of Michael.  This was the song that was at the beginning of our wedding video.

Mikey's song is "Somewhere Over The Rainbow" by Israel Kamakawiwo'Ole.  It reminds me of rocking him in the middle of the night when he was a newborn. He had a CD that we played for him while he slept at night.  This was one of the songs that was on it.

Jovie's song was really popular when she was first born.  I remember singing it to her all of the time.  I know that if she could have talked, she probably would have told me to just be quiet.  I still dance with her to this song, and she recognizes it instantly any time it comes on my IPOD.  "You're Beautiful" by James Blunt.

Carter's song is one that I heard on the way home from a hard day in the NICU.  It's always been one of my favorite songs, but it definitely seemed fitting for him.  I sing this one to him while we slow dance.  He's gonna be a heartbreaker, that boy!

So now the question is...what is my theme song?  That's a hard question for me to answer for myself.  My first inclination was to answer "Witchy Woman"... if you're not a Seinfeld fan then you won't sense the sarcasm in that. I'm really not sure what my theme song is.  Any ideas?  What is your theme song?

John Michael sang Wonderful tonight to me at our wedding with the band. It makes me tear up right now and I'm listening to it right now.

I also love Just the way you are.

You'll figure out your theme song. :)

Yours has to be a Bon Jovi song. I don't see how it could be any other band.
