Here’s a playlist I’ve always wanted to make. Well, not exactly this playlist, but one like this, where every song bears the same title. It suits my need for symmetry–I love the idea that all of these songs belong to the list of belonging songs. They’re all members of an extended family. I bet that Thanksgiving gathering is noisy.
So here they are–belonging songs, and all with the same title:
“You Belong To Me,” Bob Dylan.
“You Belong To Me,” Carly Simon.
“You Belong To Me,” Dean Martin.
“You Belong To Me,” Duprees.
“You Belong To Me,” Elvis Costello.
“You Belong To Me,” Jason Wade.
“You Belong To Me,” Patsy Cline.
“You Belong To Me,” Doobie Brothers.
There you have it: Eight songs about belonging. What did I miss? I’m listening.
Hmmm. Except for Carly and the Doobie Bro’s aren’t they all just covers of the same song? Kinda cheating imho. Granted it’s a glorious song and these versions are dazzling-I really loved the one from Jadon Wade who I’ve never heard of but will now have to google because his voice kills me. Also loved the Carly & Doobie songs so even though you’ve clearly cheated this is still a pretty successful post. 👏🏻👏🏻
