the first ten years have been great…

06-09-01 Ten years ago today was a spectacular June day. Birds flew to the tops of trees to sing out in praise of Mother Nature with full throated songs. It also happened to be the day that the owner and heart & soul of Proper Topper, Inc., Anna Louise Fuhrman, joined her life to that of your humble play list creator, making me the luckiest man in the world. In honor of that glorious day and my own continuing good fortune, I pay homage to my beautiful bride and the joy she has brought to my life these past ten years. While I don't have the words to describe how happy and fulfilled I feel to have her beside me this last decade, I'm hoping some of these songs can start to paint the picture. I can't wait for the forty or fifty or eighty years yet to come:

1. Love Me Tender - Norah Jones
"Love me tender, love me true, all my dreams fulfill. For my darlin', I love you, and I always will."

2. Grow Old With Me - Mason Jennings
"Darlin' don't be surprised when I don't leave your side. 'Cause there's not a single part of my love that you should not believe. I hope when I grow old, that you grow old with me."

3. You're My Best Friend - Queen
"You're my sunshine and I want you to know that my feelings are true. I really love you. You're my best friend!"

4. This Guy's In Love With You - Fastball
"Yes I'm in love. Who looks at you the way I do? When you smile, I can tell we know each other very well."

5. All I Want Is You - Barry Louis Polisar
"All I want is you, would you be my bride? Take me by the hand and stand by my side."

6. I've Been Loving You Too Long - Otis Redding
"I've been loving you too long. I don't wanna stop now. With you my life has been so wonderful. I can't stop now."

7. You're My Only Home - The Magnetic Fields
"I will stay if you let me stay and I'll go if you let go but I won't go far away because you're my only home."

8. First Day of My Life - Bright Eyes
"Yours is the first face that I saw. I think I was blind before I met you. Now I don't know where I am. I don't know where I've been. But I know where I want to go."

9. Whole Wide World - Wreckless Eric
"I'd go the whole wide world just to find her."

10. I Was Brought To My Senses - Sting
"I know it's true, it's written in a sky as blue, as blue as your eyes... And we'd be like the moon and sun, and when our courtly dance had run its course across the sky then together we would lie. And out of the confusion, where the river meets the sea, something new would arrive. Something better would arrive."
