Day 10: A song that reminds you of your father.

Well, since I was fortunate enough to have two, I get to post two songs.


My dad and I were both John Denver fans, and we especially liked this one. Somewhere I have a picture of twelve-year-old me standing next to a Toledo scale.





This was my stepdad's favourite song in the world, and for good reason, because it's gorgeous. It was sung at his memorial service, and I always think of him when I hear it. This is Nat Cole's version of Hoagy Carmichael's classic:




Day 1: Your favourite song
Day 2: A song that makes you cry.
Day 3: A song that makes you dance.
Day 4: Your favourite male singer.
Day 5: Your favourite female singer.
Day 6: Your favourite band.
Day 7: One band/singer you're ashamed to admit you like.
Day 8: One band/singer whose popularity you will never understand.
Day 9: A song that reminds you of an ex.
Day 10: A song that reminds you of your father.
Day 11: A song that reminds you of your mother.
