Meggie, what a classic you are and your song list just proves it!!
We had 'tell laura I love her on an album of Happy Days songs - it was so mournful that it was fantastic for a teenage girl!

PS quilt is beautiful and my vote is no sashing. I like the interplay between the blocks.

Oh I love Theme from a Summer Place too. You feel good just hearing it!

Joke said...

What an excellent list!


P.S. Theme from a Summer Place reminds me of Animal House.

It seems Theme from a Summer Place was a favourite all round.

Sorry I can only remember seeing bits of Animal House? Never watched the whole thing, as far as I remember.

I realised on re-reading the list, that I did like more of the songs, but had forgotten them when I did the post!
