Welcome back! Today is the final day of The A to Z Writing Challenge!

April 30th – Z

Zero to Hero, Hercules Soundtrack (1997)

The letter Z was an easier pick than I thought!

I’ve loved Disney and Disney movies ever since I can remember. In 1997, we went to see Hercules at the Movies 10 theater in Chesapeake. I loved the movie, but the music was great, too!

April 28th – Y

Yeah, Kelly Clarkson

Kelly Clarkson is one of my favorite artists. I remember watching her perform on American Idol, way back in the very first, debut season!

This particular song comes from her My December album, which was released in 2007. It’s not her most popular album. But, I’ve enjoyed listening to most of her music throughout her career!

Xanadu, Olivia Newton-John

April 26th – W

Who I Am With You, Chris Young

This is another song with a story. I love country music. For several years, I tuned my car radio to at least one of the major country music stations here in Hampton Roads every day.

One night, in early 2014, I was on my way back to my apartment from a late meeting. I was listening to one of the stations, and this song came over the radio. I hadn’t heard it before. It was instant love, you could say. I remember getting chills and goosebumps simultaneously.

I was in my neighborhood at this point, and no cars were around. I pulled over and parked my car in a safe place so I could fully concentrate on the song. It was that memorable and significant to me. I felt tears in my eyes.

As soon as I got home, I searched the Internet for it. It was then I discovered Chris Young and his music. I listened to the song over and over, and looked forward to when the radio stations would play it again.

Even before Al and I got engaged, I knew I wanted this song to be a part of our wedding. I played it for him, and we also listened to it on the radio at least once. He sweetly agreed for it to be our first dance song. It was so special!

I feel like this song, in a way, is a symbol of our relationship. To this day, when I need a pick-me-up, I find it on YouTube, close my eyes, and drift away in happiness for a few minutes. I love it!

Valerie, Amy Winehouse

Amy Winehouse was such a talented woman, may she Rest in Peace.

This is one of my favorite songs by her. I loved it when Glee covered it, too.

April 24th – U

Unchained Melody, The Righteous Brothers

This was another no-brainer pick for me. I remember my mom singing along to this song when it played on our home stereo. She still does. It’s sweet, and romantic.

For those of you who may not recognize this song, it was prominently featured in the movie Ghost (1990), starring Patrick Swazye, Demi Moore, and Whoopi Goldberg.Ā  It’s one of my mom’s favorite movies. I think I was in high school or just beginning college when I watched it with her for the first time. It quickly became one of my favorite movies, too. It’s set in New York, the cast is outstanding, and it’s a good story.

April 23rd – T

True Believers, Darius Rucker

I loved Darius Rucker when he was a part of the epic band Hootie and the Blowfish, but he’s certainly made a name for himself in the country music arena, too.

This is one of my favorite songs by him. It was hard to pick just one for this challenge. I love his voice, and I love the message behind this song. Enjoy!
