I Will...

Do you have a favorite song?  A song so wonderful you think, "I could listen to this forever and never get sick of it" but you don't because then it would completely ruin it and it wouldn't be your favorite song anymore?  Still with me?  Okay, good :)  I think my favorite song ever, in the whole world, forever, for the rest of my life, til the day I die, I-love-it-so-much-I-want-it-played-at-my-funeral is "I Will" by The Beatles.  I.love.this.song.so.very.much.  It has been a favorite of mine for years, it was even in my wedding.  It's not a popular Beatles song, somewhat unknown and very simple and sweet.  I really listened to the words recently and my heart took on a whole new love for it.  If I could write a song for Ryan, this would be it.  It doesn't hurt either that The Beatles sang it.  The four men that I love so much that if I ever have twin boys, I'm naming them John and Paul (I'll tell Ryan, "Oh, those are family names" but I'll know who they're really named after . . . I'm doing my "evil plan laugh" right now!)  Anyhow, I love the song, the words, the singer, all of it.  I wish I could wrap it up in a pretty box, stick a bow on top and give it to Ryan for Christmas. But then, he'd probably return it for a song that Hank Williams, Jr. sings or something.  Well, we can't all be Beatles fans, I guess. Click the link to listen to the most fabulous song ever.   Way better than "There's a Tear in My Beer".    http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=endscreen&NR=1&v=Rx_APcTyIUg
How could you not love a man in a tux AND a sombrero?

Hey, Lindsey. I ALWAYS love your blog. Wish you'd blog at least once a week. I was telling Granddad the other night that you, and some of the other grandchildren, are such good writers and how I wish I could write like you. We discussed writing and then Granddad said, "Lindsey is like a modern day Will Rogers." I thought that to be one of the best compliments ever.
