Three Songs for Three People
It began with writer Patti Abbott, and Michael from It Rains...You Get Wet picked up on it. Three songs for three important people in your life. Or as Michael puts it, X songs for X people, in case three is not a suitable number for you. Here's how Patti wrote it:
“Lots of songs remind me of the people in my life. But if I had to chose one for each of them, these are my choices. These might not be the song they associate with themselves, but they are songs I do. What songs do you associate with people in your life.”I'm going with just three because there are too many important people in my life to do justice to all of them. This first one is for my elder sister, the first Beatlemaniac I knew. She made me the second one.
This second song reminds me of Rebecca, with whom I have been friends a full 40 years. This is a Christmas song, and Rebecca's family has many traditions associated with the holiday. One of them is a tree-trimming party that concludes with everyone singing carols and other holiday songs. She and I tried for years in vain to get everyone to learn this song that we both love:
And this song will forever be associated with my 2-year-old great-niece who took an inexplicable shine to it, pronouncing it "my favrit."
