1. Amie - Pure Prairie League. I love the fact that I am beginning with this song. Despite the spelling being different, it should be abundantly clear why I love this song. It is the ringtone for my Amy. Whenever the kids hear this, they know she is calling me. There have been times when I have been playing the actual song and they think she is calling, even if she is sitting right there! Talk about a Pavlovian response! Other than bringing to mind my dearest wife, I just enjoy this song and the folksy sound of it. To be honest I couldn't name you any other song by Pure Prairie League if my life depended on it. And that's just find by me since none could ever top this.
2. Amarillo By Morning - George Strait. Of course he had to make this list. How could he not? Love or hate country you know who he is, the King of Country. This is probably my all-time favorite George Strait song. Amy knows what I am about to say as she has heard it many times before. This song reminds me of my childhood. I distinctly remember hearing it as a small child, on a road trip, passing through Amarillo, in the morning. Therefore, despite being an awesome song, it holds a special place in my heart for that very reason.
All is well, A down, in Drosche Land.
