I heard this being sung on the radio this morning by Otis Redding and I thought it was such a perfect song for Jack to sing to Ennis.

I've been loving you too long to stop now

There were time and you wanted to be free
My love is growing stronger, as you become a habit to me
Oh I've been loving you a little too long
I dont wanna stop now, oh
With you my life,
Has been so wonderful
I can't stop now

There were times and your love is growing cold
My love is growing stronger as our affair grows old
I've been loving you a little too long, long,
I don't want to stop now
oh, oh, oh
I've been loving you a little bit too long
I don't wanna stop now
No, no, no

Don't make me stop now
No baby
I'm down on my knees Please, don't make me stop now
I love you, I love you,
I love you with all of my heart
And I can't stop now
Don't make me stop now
Please, please don't make me stop now
Good god almighty I love you
I love you, I love you, I love you
I love you, I love you
I love you in so many different ways...
I love you in so many different ways....


Jack never gave up on Ennis.  :-*

No he didn't!!!! I believe that too... Beautiful song...  :'(

Don't mean to be a hog, but I had to post this one. It really remined me of what Jack might say to Ennis:

The Hard Way
(Mary Chapin Carpenter)

Show a little inspiration, show a little spark
And show that things that drew me to you and stole my heart
And tell me something I don't know instead of everything I do
And look at me as if I mean something to you
Our hearts are beating while we sleep, but while we're wide awake
You know the world won't stop, and actions speak louder
Listen to your heart, and what your heart might say
Everything we got, we got the hard way

Show a little passion, baby, show a little style
And show the knack for knowing when and the gift for knowing how
And have a little trust in us when fear obscures the path
You know we got this far, darling, not by luck, but by never turning back
Some will call on destiny, but I just call on faith
That the world won't stop, and actions speak louder
Listen to your heart, to what your heart might say
Everything we got, we got the hard way

Caught up in our little lives, there's not a lot left over
I see what's missing in your eyes; you're searching for that field of clover
So show a little inspiration, show a little spark
Show the world a little light when you show it your heart
We've got two lives, one we're given and the other one we make
And the world won't stop, and actions speak louder
Listen to your heart, and your heart might say
Everything we got, we got the hard (everything we got, we got the hard way)
Everything we got, we got the hard way
(Because the world won't stop)  hang on, baby...

As far as I know, I have never heard 90% of the songs you all suggest.  Thanks for opening up my musical education. 

I agree with being very judicious about adding "off-musical-genre" songs (even though I am more likely to know those non-country songs).

Howdy everybody!

Now this is what I'm talkin' about.  Great to see lively discussion. Thank you thank you thank you so much for all of the feedback and the suggestions.   :D   If you don't tell me what you want to or don't want to hear, I'm kinda in the dark when programming the station.

On Sunday we increased the amount of songs we're able to have playing on the station.  I added over 40+ new songs taken straight from your suggestions, and I also brought back a few songs that had aired on the station previously, but were taken off for one reason or another.  I thought I'd give those songs a second chance with the new wave of listeners we have now a days.

I'll be fine tuning the station over the next couple a weeks, watching closely the thumbs up and thumbs down votes, etc, and taking in consideration your feedback here as well.  Please keep the feedback and the suggestions coming.   :D

Also, if anyone ever notices any problems with the tracks themselves (i.e. volume of the track too loud or too quiet, etc.) please let me know that as well so I can fix it.  Thanks.

Keep listenin'    :D

My favorite Patty Smyth song is from her days with Scandal, "Hands Tied."  I've always thought it could be about a couple of gay guys and think it might fit on the station. 

Darling, darling, darling,
I`ll never understand
How sometimes just the way you look at me
Can tear my heart, but then again

Darling, darling, darling
Don`t look across the room
Cuz you might catch me looking at you
Should we know what to say or what to do

So hold on
Don`t turn away
There must be a hundred things
We forgot to say

How can we touch
With our hands tied
When only you know how much
You keep me satisfied
How can we explain
This ball of flame
Locked up inside
With our hands tied?

Darling, darling, darling
If you think this love is blind
Just remember
Each time you squeeze her hand you crush my heart
Oh and you just could be driving me out of my mind

Darling, darling, darling
I`ll never let it show
But as long as you go on leaving me
I`ll just fall apart each time you go

So hold on
Don`t take my heart away
She may be one good reason to leave
But I`m a hundred reasons to stay

How can we touch
With our hands tied
When only you know how much
You keep me satisfied
How can we explain
This ball of flame
Locked up inside
With our hands tied?


Whaddya think? 

Oh this is such a close one.  Almost fits perfectly.  But I'm on the fence about it.  Hmmm.  :-\

I put your other two suggestions on the station.  ;)  :D

Thank you for BBM Radio, I love what I've heard of it.

Do we have anything by The Mavericks on BBM radio?  "Dream River", "To Be With  You", and "I've Got This Feeling" from "Trampoline" really remind me of our beautiful boys.  Not that just about any song I hear doesn't! ;)   

"To Be With  You" especially reminds me of when Ennis received the first postcard from Jack.  Raul Malo has a big, dramatic "Roy Orbison" style voice, and it's in keeping with the country theme of BBM radio.  It may not be everyone's cup of tea, but it certainly is mine!

Also "You're Gone" by Diamond Rio reminds me of our boys too.

Thanks!


Three of these four suggestions have been added.  Thank you.  ;)

Speaking of Roy, I'm not big on his version of "I Drove All Night."  I prefer Cyndi Lauper's.  Hell, I prefer Celine Dion's over Roy's (Don't throw stuff at me!).  But his "In Dreams" might sound good on the station. 

A candy-colored clown they call the sandman
Tiptoes to my room every night
Just to sprinkle stardust and to whisper
Go to sleep. everything is all right.

I close my eyes, then I drift away
Into the magic night. I softly say
A silent prayerlike dreamers do.
Then I fall asleep to dream my dreams of you.

In dreams I walk with you. in dreams I talk to you.
In dreams youre mine. all of the time were together
In dreams, in dreams.

But just before the dawn, I awake and find you gone.
I cant help it, I cant help it, if I cry.
I remember that you said goodbye.

Its too bad that all these things, can only happen in my dreams
Only in dreams in beautiful dreams.


I will never be able to get past this being in the movie Blue Velvet:laugh:
