The one that makes me go all night long

I was shot down by your love
My angel in blue jeans

To hold my love

Take me to my city by the Bay


If It’s Love

And we decide that it’s forever
No one else could do it better

I’m so glad you have a one-track mind like me
You gave my life direction
A game show love connection we can’t deny


Calling All Angels
2003, My Private Nation
Another song to remember loved one lost too soon. You could also include the song into a ceremony song calling angels to watch over you.

When there is no place safe and no safe place to put my head
When you feel the world shake from the words that are said
And I’m calling all angels


When I Look To The Sky
2003, My Private Nation
If you have a friend or family member that passed on, this is a great tribute song to remember lost loved ones.

And every dance on the kitchen floor we didn’t dance before
And every sunset that we’ll miss I’ll wrap them all up in a kiss
And pick you up in all of this when I sail away


Drops of Jupiter
2001, Drops of Jupiter
Another song to remember loved ones lost, particularly a Mother. This song could be a great parent dance with someone stepping for celebrating your Mother.

Tell me, did you fall for a shooting star?
One without a permanent scar
And did you miss me while you were
Looking for yourself?


Meet Virginia
1998, Train
A mid-tempo song that makes for a great cocktail hour that everyone will know and sing along to.

Then she thinks about her life
Pulls her hair back as she screams
I don’t really wanna be the queen
