Help! Can you suggest song titles?

Hello everyone.  Some of you know this already, but Babu is turning 100 in March!  We, of course, are having a whopping party and I am going to make a video slide for the special event.  When I make videos like this I like to choose three songs and that’s where I need your help.  They don’t need to be on a birthday or a 100 theme.  I’d like a mix of oldies and new ones.  I want upbeat and fitting and I wont know what’s fitting until I hear it.  (This is where you are coming in.)

Here are some songs I was thinking:

If I live to be  hundred – Ronnie Dove

100 years to live – Five for Fighting  (Maybe a little too negative – I don’t want to say 100 is it!)

Fire and the Flood  Vance Joy (just feels right)

Maroon 5 Sunday Morning (Speaks to Babu’s romantic side – she is a whole person!)

There is Emily by Frank Sinatra – quite low key but could certainly work.

 

As you can see this list is all over the place and quite on purpose.  Please comment and share suggestions.  I know you out there know the perfect song to go with her slide show video!

    I would try and pick songs from each of the decades she’s lived through- you could research the top 5 or 10 that year? And what’s her fav type- jazz, rock and roll, classical? You could play a selection to her and gauge her response as to which ones to include? I love Doris Day ones, disco tracks from the 70s, Elvis… the list goes on! What a lovely idea : ) G

    Are you looking for only english songs? Or are you okay with any language?

    How about “I’m sitting on top of the world”
    I always liked my parents’ records like “No strings and No Connections” or it might be called “Fancy Free”
    Anyway, have fun choosing, and have a simply marvellous birthday for Babu, bless her.

  5. There are several other Frank Sinatra songs that come to mind, and I bet Babu is a Sinatra fan. “My Way” might seem too prescient, but how about “Luck be a Lady Tonight” or “The Best is Yet to Come,” “Fly Me to the Moon,” or “Young at Heart.”

    Louis Armstrong’s “What a Wonderful World” is always amazing, gorgeous and uplifting, a song that melts everyone who listens.

    You are making a celebration that will be a treasure for everyone who attends, especially for Babu. I love the sparkle in her eyes. Happy Birthday to her and 100 more!
