Tribute Songs

Kathi, (and others who have asked for it)…here’s the list of songs that would have/should have been burned to a CD per Sheila’s request, but was instead played at her service.

  1. Back At One: Brian McKnight (We sang this to each other every time it came on the radio or TV.)
  2. Beauty and the Beast (Soundtrack Version): Céline Dion & Peabo Bryson (You can figure out who’s who.) 
  3. Don’t Let Go: Take 6 Brothers (We both loved their a cappella singing. It gives you goosebumps) 
  4. Friends: Michael W. Smith (a religious song, but I liked the lifetime friend’s part)
  5. Friends in Love: Dionne Warwick and Johnny Mathis
  6. I’ll Be There: Take 6 Brothers
  7. I Will Be Here: Steven Curtis Chapman 
  8. Know By Heart: Dave Koz 
  9. A Love That Will Last: Renee Olstead (One of Sheila’s favorite songs. Reminded her of what she found in us.)
  10. Music of My Heart: *NSYNC & Gloria Estefan Music of the Heart (Soundtrack from the Motion Picture) (We liked the movie – especially the Concerto in D Minor for 2 Violins by Bach that was played at the end.) 
  11. My Everything: 98º (We would dance to this song all the time at home. And it was our First Dance at our wedding)
  12. Now I Know Why (They Call It Falling): Michael Franks
  13. On Golden Pond: Dave Grusin
  14. Once In a Lifetime: Michael Bolton
  15. One More Time: Kenny G Featuring Chante Moore
  16. Sailing: Christopher Cross
  17. Someone To Love: Jon B 
  18. Still: 98º (We danced to this one at home too. Plus the music video was shot at the base of the Tower Bridge in London which we’d crossed over, so Sheila was pretty giddy when I showed her the video.) 
  19. Theme from the “Color Purple”: David Foster 
  20. Turning It Up: Pieces of a Dream Love’s Silhouette Jazz 
  21. When I Fall In Love: Celine Dion & Clive Griffin Sleepless In Seattle (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack) 
  22. (You’ll Always Be) My Heart and Soul: Stephen Bishop (This one I played a lot when Sheila was most ill and asleep and has the most meaning since she passed.) 
  23. 5 Corners: The Doobie Brothers Live At Wolf Trap Rock (We heard this for the first time at a Doobie Brothers concert in San Diego for her 50th birthday in 2007. She had just met Pat Simmons, the guitarist, backstage so hearing him play this song was very special for us.)
