Music Monday - Takin' it back a few decades

The other night, I was watching one of those infomercials for a CD collection.  You know what I'm talking about.  It was playing love songs from the 70s, 80s and 90s, and there were a lot of tunes I remembered hearing on the radio in my childhood.  It got me thinking about some of the random songs I used to love and I set off to YouTube to find the videos.

This was one of the first music videos I remember seeing.  
It used to play constantly on this music channel we had when we first got cable.

Gah.  Love this guy's voice. 
It actually reminds me of Marc Broussard's voice.  
Interesting.

\\\\////

Such a random song.
And pretty haunting too. 
 I think it's the kids' voices.

\\\\////

I thought this was such a beautiful song when I was younger. 
Now I realize how heartbreaking it is.

Ok, so it's hard to see this one without thinking about the SNL impressions of Aaron Neville.
But, really, he and Linda Rondstadt sound great together.

\\\\////


This song reminds me of riding in the car with my grandpa. He loved Randy Travis.
And I still think this is one of the sweetest love songs. 

\\\\////


This was one of the first cassettes I owned. I still have it actually.
I used to sing along with her all the time.

\\\\////


I probably definitely sang along with this one too.

And now I've definitely shown my age.
I hope you enjoyed that little blast from the past as much as I did.
