When I was wooing Anne, I started sending her a song every 2 or 3 days. Most of the songs I sent were love songs except a couple such as Everytime and Change Of Heart. These two songs were the exceptions because she said she like them. Anyway, for every song I sent, I put in in a iTunes Playlist named Anne's Songs. Once I reach 80 minutes worth of song, I'll burn it into a CD for her. iTunes made that so much easier.
There is a reason for the choice of each song. It usually represent what I feel at that particular day when I decided to send the song. My most difficult challenge was looking for the first song. The first song she received from me must not have too much implication or deep feelings and yet it must convey a message - a message that I am interested in her. Gabrille's Sunshine did that job really well. It goes something like this: "Sunshine through my window, that's what you are...". Then the implication received a notch up the scale. I sent her K-Ci & Jojo's All My Life which proclaimed my gratitude to God to have sent her into my life: "I thank God, that I, that I finally found her."
And just days before I told her, in person, how I felt, REO Speedwagon's Can't Fight This Feeling which goes something like this:
"I can’t fight this feeling any longer
And yet I’m still afraid to let it flow
What started out as friendship, has grown stronger
I only wish I had the strength to let it show"
did the trick.
She remembered that I sang Man Bai's Kau IhlamKu in karaoke and she said I sang that song really well (cough) and she was impressed. That's how this song made into the Special Playlist.
Debbie Gibson's Two Young Kids, which turned out to be our favourites, imply that we do see a future together and that 50 years later, "...two young kids, will be wishing, they were us."
I sent Anne Cold Song, a small and short poem/song by Jewel, because she caught a cold the other day and this song cheered her up tremendously.
And when she told me she loves me, I gave her Diana Ross' ".. I'm shining like a candle in the dark, when you tell me that you love me."
Am I a "romantis" or what? :D
