A Very Special Short Music List

A young man about the age of twenty-four grabs the hand of his twenty-seven year old lady love and escorts her out to the dance floor. He gestures to the man behind the turntable and within a few seconds, the melody of their special song comes wafting through the speakers.

After the final notes fade away, the young lady has tears in her eyes. The young man kisses her tears away, then gestures to the man behind the turntable, and again within a few seconds, the melody of one of his favorite songs comes wafting through the speakers.

Afte the final notes fades away, the young man and the young lady walk back to their seats, all the while engulfed in an incredibly loud round of applause.

My good friends, on this particular day back in 1989, smack dab in the middle of a downtown festival, I tied the knot with the only girlfriend I've ever had.

Twenty three years later, she still remains the only true love of my life.


  1. What a great story, man. Congratulations to you both.

  2. Aww you've gone all sentimental! How cute! Congratulations on making it 23 years!!

  3. Oh - that's lovely, G. Very special.

  4. Happy anniversary, you two crazy kids!

  5. I love that Orbison album and song. And congrats to both of you, G. Thank you for sharing that special time.

  6. To everyone: Thank you for your thoughtful comments.

    Hard to believe that I've been married 23 years and overall, been with my lovely wife for 25.

  7. Awww!! Happy anniversary! What a sweet post, G. And I love both of these artists.

  8. Congrats to you both for being together so long!

  9. Congratulations on so many happy years together (and many more to come!)

    Hubby and I celebrate 32 years of marriage in a couple of months (you don't get that for murder these days ;-p) - it doesn't seem that long but once you start to reminisce you realise all the events and milestones you've experienced together!

    Congratulations, again!

  10. Thanks everyone!

    It is an incredible milestone as when I was younger, I never dreamed that I would be married, let alone have a girlfriend.

    But as they say, God does work in mysterious ways, and I'm glad that he did.

  11. Terminally Ill: Thanks for stopping by to comment.

  12. Awww, I'm late seeing this post, but happy belated anniversary!!! Hope you and your wife had a wonderful day together! :)

  13. Lisa: Thanks. We had a fantastic day together. :D


Go on, give me your best shot. I can take it. If I couldn't, I wouldn't have created this wonderful little blog that you decided to grace with your presence today.

About that comment moderation thingy: While yes, it does say up above I can take it, I only use it to prevent the occasional miscreant from leaving thoughtless and/or clueless comments.

So remember, all of your comments are greatly appreciated and all answers will be given that personal touch that you come to expect and enjoy.
