30 Days of Truth - Day 24: Make a playlist to someone, and explain why you chose all the songs. (Just post the titles and artists and letter)

Make a playlist to someone.
For Alfredo <3 Even Flow - Pearl Jam I Will Always Love You - Whitney Houston Mmm Mmm Mmm Mmm - Crash Test Dummies Black - Pearl Jam Rotten Apple - Alice In Chains Black Hole Sun - Soundgarden Sober - Tool I'll Make Love To You - Boyz II Men Big Empty - Stone Temple Pilots Wonderwall - Oasis Nothing Else Matters - Metallica This Is The Time - Billy Joel The Freshmen - Verve Pipe All My Life - K-Ci and JoJo Good Night Saigon - Billy Joel Time of Your Life - Green Day Corduroy - Pearl Jam Ghetto Supastar (That Is What You Are) - Pras Feat. Ol' Dirty Bastard & Mya Last Kiss - Pearl Jam Cowboy Take Me Away - Dixie Chicks Vuelve - Ricky Martin Freak Me Baby - Silk Wherever You Will Go - The Calling Alle Alle Alle - Ricky Martin Through Glass - Stone Sour Love Story - Taylor Swift Ok, so maybe this playlist would only fit on a double disc cd set... it's awful but I could go on & on. When I started this list I just had a few songs in mind but then one would lead to another and suddenly it was our relationship through the years. Not really in song lyrics themselves. It's more about what they represent. Years of memories. It started with Even Flow ... and all the rest of the songs on Pearl Jam's Ten. You lent me the cd before we were dating. (My aunt told me it was a sure sign you like me if you lent me your favorite cd.) I Will Always Love You. I know you don't have love for Whitney, but it was playing when we had our 1st kiss at the Winter Ball junior year so it will always be special to me. Mmm Mmm Mmm by the Crash Test Dummies was the cassette single we nearly wore out in your mom's old brown station wagon. Dancing to Pearl Jam's Black after we lost for Homecoming King & Queen and you told me I'd always be your queen. Alice In Chains, Soundgarden, Tool, Stone Temple Pilots, Metallica ... pillow over our heads. Boys II Men because I loved them - and you bought me the cd - the drama that came from a misunderstanding. And what came after. This Is The Time, took a risk and put it in the yearbook (cause I don't want to lose you now). Wonderwall because you loved Oasis ... for about 2 minutes ... then they were popular and you hated them. Verve, K-Ci & JoJo ... dancing at the Norwich military formals. Good Night Saigon with everyone singing. Time Of Your Life. Dixie Chicks because you were my cowboy (even if you hate country music, you got my love for the Chicks). Vuelve was our wedding song and we spent weeks practicing at the dance studio. One of the sweetest things you have ever done for me. Freak Me Baby, please tell me you will never forget that. I still laugh when I hear it. For the record? I'm sure LOTS of people like that song, it's not That random! Wherever You Will Go, because I would. California, Vegas... wherever as long as we were together. Alle Alle Alle for the Big Guy. I'm pretty sure the nurses were sick of that cd all in spanish... and yet how fitting for when he was born. Makes me wish I had one for the Bunny Bee & the Doodlebop, but then that was a whole different experience. Taylor's Love Story because we could have written parts of that song. It IS us, even if our story was a little different. Lyrics below because I know you have never listened to it 100%.

One last thing. I love you.
