- The Promise (Tracy Chapman) -- As Rose said in the comment section, we listened to this song so many times that I am surprised we didn't break the CD player. 12 years later I still love it.
- Beyond My Wildest Dreams (Mark Knopfler & Emmylou Harris) -- I will readily admit that Jay is the music one in this house. He got this album a couple of years ago and I love just about every song on it. But this one's the best.
- Beyond the Sea (Bobby Darin) -- This is our song. When we had been dating just a week or two we rented a movie (I think it may have been Amos and Andrew, but I can't remember) that we didn't ever watch, but at the beginning you could hear just a bit of the song. I thought it sounded like something I had heard before, but I didn't know what. A couple of weeks later Jay turned on the CD player (or it could have been a tape player back then) and it started playing. We were 17 years old and this was pre-internet, so I'm still not sure how he figured out what is was AND got a copy of it so quickly. I'm still impressed.
- Almost Home (Howard Markman) -- A few weeks ago we were having an insane storm in the middle of the night, so I was awake and flipping through the channels. I landed on Carrier. Who knew late night PBS was such an emotional minefield? Anyway, it was very interesting, and I loved this song.
It was a little secret
And then I told it to my friend
And then it was no secret
