iTunes: Pam Beesly’s List

“The Way I Want to Be” (Track 1): “These guys write perfect 3-minute pop songs. Impossible to listen to without dancing.”

“Me and Julio Down By the Schoolyard” (Track 2): “When I was a kid, my parents used to play the Concert in Central Park album all the time. Everytime I hear, ‘Gerry Niewood on saxophone,’ I think of my mom.”

“Another First Kiss” (Track 3): “It just makes me happy. That’s all.”

“Those Sweet Words” (Track 4)
: “I have this CD-playing alarm clock, and I wake up to this song every morning. It’s soothing and pretty — it sort of pulls me gently out of sleep. My fiance hates it.”

“Angel” (Track 5): “I like to listen to this song when I draw cartoons. I have a female heroine that I sketch sometimes. She’s an adventurer and I imagine this is her theme song.”

“Through Any Window” (Track 6): “This is my new favorite album. I like almost every song. But this one is probably my favorite.”

“Wonderful Tonight” (Track 7): “I know it’s cheesy, but it’s my song with Roy, my fiancee. Give me a break — we’ve been dating since high school.”

“Phone Call #27” (Track 8): “This is the only time where I like the sound of a phone ringing in my ear.”

“Somewhere Only We Know” (Track 9): “This has a really great lyric that kind of haunts me: ‘So tell me when you’re gonna let me in / I’m getting tired and I need somewhere to begin.’ That gives me shivers, for some reason.”

“Somebody to Love” (Track 10): “I love to rock out to Queen. When I was younger, my sister and I would dance on my bed and sing into hairbrushes like in that movie ‘Adventures in Babysitting.'”

“One Down” (Track 11): “I love that this guy had a deadline for his record company hanging over his head and turned it into a song. It inspires me.”

“At Last (Single)” (Track 12): “This is going to be Roy’s and my first dance at our wedding. Kind of fitting, after our 42-year courtship.”
