My Mix

9/11 Mix Mania

2,996 people died five years ago. It isn’t those people I think about when I think about that day. I think about the ones left behind. For every one of those 2,996 people who died, there are loved ones still here - parents, brothers, sisters, wives, husbands, kids, grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends. Countless people touched by that day.

This CD is for them.

1. You Are My Sunshine – Ray Charles
When my son was born, this is the song I sang to him every night. He is my sunshine and I can’t imagine him ever being gone.

2. He Was in Heaven Before He Died – John Prine
“A person can’t tell his best friend he loves him.” Do so. Every day.

3. Photographs & Memories – Jim Croce

4. Every Mother’s Son – Matt Dusk

5. There You’ll Be – Faith Hill

6. Birdhouse in Your Soul – They Might Be Giants
An odd song to choose, but I like it.

7. Always Something There to Remind Me – Naked Eyes
This is one of my most favorite songs ever.

8. My Favorite Memory – Merle Haggard

9. How High Did You Go? – John Conlee
How do you want to be remembered?

10. Return to Me – Dean Martin
I love the song and I really love the movie. I don’t cry at movies much, but I cry at least three times each time I watch it.

11. Painter Song – Norah Jones

12. Seasons of Love – Rent
How do you measure a year in the life?

13. Hold On - R. Kelly

14. Shower The People You Love – James Taylor

15. If Tomorrow Never Comes – Garth Brooks

16. Let The Day Begin – The Call
I love this song. The Boy likes it too.

17. America The Beautiful – Ray Charles
It is.


  1. Oh wow I found you!

    I loved this cd, thanks!! I've listened to it several times already.

  2. I have never heard Ray do you are my sunshine. Willie Nelson's version is one of my favs...
