    What is your favorite song title or quote from a song? I want to work a bunch of these into a multi-media collage-type quilt....and I need your help finding GREAT ones! You don't even have to like the song, as long as you love the title or great line or two from the lyrics! All eras and kinds of music are welcome! Please tell me the title of the song and who sang it (if you know) so I can keep a list for my records..... Thanks so much for helping me out!!!!

    American Pie, Don McClean.....The players tried to take the field, the marching band refused to yield. This stands out for me cause I have kids in marching band.

    "I Hope You Dance" by Leann Womack always makes me think of my girls. The lyrics to that song are incredible. "God Bless the USA" by Lee Greenwood. "Lean on Me" by Bill Withers (a one hit wonder). "Let it Be", the Beatles.

    Reeling in the Years (Steely Dan), Sunrise, Sunset, swiftly fly the years, one season following another (Fiddler on the Roof)

    And the perfect one: Letting go by Suzy Bogguss:

    She'll take the painting in the hallway,
    The one she did in jr. high
    And that old lamp up in the attic,
    She'll need some light to study by.

    She's had 18 years to get ready for this day
    She should be past the tears, she cries some anyway

    Oh oh letting go
    There's nothing in the way now,
    Oh letting go, there's room enough to fly
    And even though, she's spent her whole life waiting,
    It's never easy letting go.

    Mother sits down at the table
    So many things she'd like to do
    Spend more time out in the garden
    Now she can get those books read too.

    She's had 18 years to get ready for this day
    She should be past the tears, she cries some anyway.

    Oh oh letting go
    There's nothing in the way now,
    Oh letting go, there's room enough to fly
    And even though, she's spent her whole life waiting,
    It's never easy letting go.

    Oh oh letting go
    There's nothing in the way now,
    Oh letting go, there's room enough to fly
    And even though, she's spent her whole life waiting,
    It's never easy letting go.

    "You're Gonna Miss This" by Trace Adkins
    She was staring out that window, of that SUV
    Complaining, saying I can't wait to turn 18
    She said I'll make my own money, and I'll make my own rules
    Mamma put the car in park out there in front of the school
    Then she kissed her head and said I was just like you

    You're gonna miss this
    You're gonna want this back
    You're gonna wish these days hadn't gone by so fast
    These are some good times
    So take a good look around
    You may not know it now
    But you're gonna miss this

    Before she knows it she's a brand new bride
    In a one-bedroom apartment, and her daddy stops by
    He tells her It's a nice place
    She says It'll do for now
    Starts talking about babies and buying a house
    Daddy shakes his head and says Baby just slow down

    'Cause You're gonna miss this
    You're gonna want this back
    You're gonna wish these days hadn't gone by so fast
    These are some good times
    So take a good look around
    You may not know it now
    But you're gonna miss this

    Five years later there's a plumber workin' on the water heater
    Dog's barkin', phone's ringin'
    One kid's cryin', one kid's screamin'
    She keeps apologizin'
    He says they don't bother me
    I've got 2 babies of my own
    One's 36, one's 23
    Huh, it's hard to believe

    But you're gonna miss this
    You're gonna want this back
    You're gonna wish these days hadn't gone by so fast
    These are some good times
    So take a good look around
    You may not know it now
    But you're gonna miss this
    You're gonna miss this
    Yeah, you're gonna miss this

    I love I hope you dance it is really good song. and then cinderella is another good one that makes me cry. The guy that wrote cinderella song has a bunch of kids and a few of them are adopted. well his birth son was backing out of the driveway and ran over one of his adopted sisters. this was just a couple of years ago and this song actually had her in it. I am trying not to cry just thinking of the song and the sad sad story.

    Tapestry- by Carole King. It came immediately to mind as a classic and good quilt song-- "My life has been a tapestry of rich and royal hue; an ever changing vision of the ever changing view. A wondrous woven magic, in bits of blue and gold; a tapestry to see and feel, impossible to hold...."

    I don't know who wrote it but "It's a great day to be alive" is part of the lyrics don't know if it's the title.

    Uncle Kracker -- Smile

    You make me smile like the sun
    Fall out of bed sing like bird
    Dizzy in my head spin like a record
    Crazy on a Sunday night
    You make me dance like a fool
    Forget how to breathe
    Shine like gold buzz like a bee
    Just the thought of you can drive me wild
    Ohh you make me smile

    Friend, I will remember you,
    Think of you, Pray for you.
    And when another day is through,
    I'll still be friends with you.

    All you need is love!
    Raindrops keep falling on my head.
    Yesterday when I was young.
    I'm gonna miss her.
    I've got a brand new pair of roller skates, you've got a brand new key, I think that we should get together to try them out to see
    It's too late now, baby
    Old dogs and children and watermelon wine
    Grandpa, tell me bout the good old days
    Daddy's hands were soft and kind when I was crying, hard as steel when I'd done wrong

    there is an old old song about a ball team in Woonsocket RI
    Have been trying to find the words. Was from a movie, I believe, about the college town.
