Here’s the second installment of Songs Of The Decade – The 1960’s. These are 5 of my favorite songs from the era of peace and love. Which one is your favorite?
#1 Stand By Me – Ben E. King
“…And the moon is the only light we’ll see
No I won’t be afraid, Oh I won’t be afraid
Just as long as you stand, stand by me…”
#2 Unchained Melody – Righteous Brothers
“…Lonely rivers sigh ‘Wait for me, wait for me’
I’ll be coming home, wait for me…”
#3 Can’t Help Falling In Love – Elvis Presley
“…Shall I stay, would it be a sin
If I can’t help, falling in love with you…”
#4 At Last – Etta James
“…My love has come along
My lonely days are over…”
#5 It Had To Be You – Harry Connick Jr.
“…With all your faults, I love you still,
It had to be you, wonderful you, it had to be you…”
Jaime’s note: “Can’t Help Falling in Love” was my parents’ first dance song, so it has additional meaning for me. I also love Brown-Eyed Girl by Van Morrison and Chapel of Love by the Dixie Cups (also featured on our post about wedding songs for your walk down the aisle!)
