awww. When ds was just born in Jan, how to save a life by the fray was just out and on the radio a lot, so we listened to it the night. now whenever i hear it i remember being all cuddled up in bed feeding him in the middle of the night

not relevant if you have a DD but "He ain't heavy, he's my brother" makes me cry,thiking of my DSs

aDad Sun 22-Jul-07 14:28:31

athlete - wires.

reminds me of dd1's birth and the days after.

'sweet like chocolate' for DS, as when he was small, he would bop away to it. He found the CD the other day in a box in my bedroom, and has been playing it on his pc (he is 9 now lol)

Natalie Merchant's Wonder makes me think of dd2 - it almost feels like it was written about her.

Major Cheese Alert

(but bear in mind I was fully expecting DD not to survive the traumatic pregnancy and birth before you judge me)

I was 42+5 and still wasn't getting anywhere and feeling totally unbonded with the baby when Daius Colourblind came on the radio.

"nobody told me about your smile, nobody said you could be so beautiful, you're the light, you're the light when I close my eyes"

I was sitting in the car crying my eyes out to Darius FGS!!! But I suddenly realised, that the baby (DD) would have a smile and it all felt much much better!

<off to stick fingers down throat now>

Love is all around, Wet Wet Wet, was literally all around the summer DS1 was born.

'whats that coming over the hill is it a Monster'

gemmiegoatlegs Sun 22-Jul-07 15:16:46

monster was the first song my ds sang to!

snowwonder Sun 22-Jul-07 15:23:37

whooops didnt read the thread before posting didnt realise you meant sentimental ones!!!!

i can rememeber being up in night with dd1-9 and she was screaming and The Verve came on bitter sweet syphony, and she went silent, and loved it from that day, - i used to play it all the time to stop her crying....

DD2-nearly 4. just loves the monster song and sings it non stop, she adds peoples names instead of the monster bit....
what's that coming over the hill is it a Mummy etc etc

so that song makes me think of her

saffy202 Sun 22-Jul-07 15:25:29

You're Gorgeous by Baby Bird is ds1's song and You do Something to Me by Paul Weller is ds2's.
Also 2 Little Boys by Rolf Harris can bring a tear to my eye

Sixer Sun 22-Jul-07 15:27:42

"isnt she lovely" stevie wonder- was playing when dd1 born
"Because we want to" Billie Piper- cos dd2 used to think it said "cos I a tomato" and sing it really loudly
"For my Babies" Simply Red, makes me well up thinking of them all

Hopeitwontbebig Sun 22-Jul-07 15:51:52

Craig David's, Re-e-wind, when the crowd say 'BO LECKER' we'd hear from the back of the car from our 2 yr old DS1!

Pheebe Sun 22-Jul-07 15:55:20

van morrison - into the mystic
Lone star - amazed
ronan keeting - friends in time (the first few lines)

theres a country song by a woman thats all about her little boy asking for his pocket money so she replies that for carrying him for nine months, the nights sitting up with him while he was poorly, the love she feels every time she looks at him etc etc charge. Sounds dreadfully cheesy but it made me cry everytime I heard it while pregnant with DS

Pheebe Sun 22-Jul-07 15:56:41

OO and alison moyet - the first time ever i saw your face

thats it now I'm crying

PregnantGrrrl Sun 22-Jul-07 16:03:07

Sheena is a Punk Rocker by the Ramones. It was on the first time i felt him move inside me.

PregnantGrrrl Sun 22-Jul-07 16:04:24

and most Specials songs...he loves the Specials.

PurpleLostPrincess Sun 22-Jul-07 16:08:09

Pheebe, I know exactly what song you mean, my Dad used to play it all the time but I can't remember who sang it for the life of me!! (I'll watch this thread now in case somebody comes along who does...).

He also used to play 'But you love me Daddy' which was an old country song too...

As for my DC's, I used to sing them 'James Taylor - You've got a Friend' and also 'Extreme - More than Words'. My DD still holds out her hand for me to hold it as I'm singing that bit!

I'm crying now, what a lovely thread!!!

Tommy, that song always gets me too as I danced with my BIG brother to it at his 18th
