D is for...Dreaming and Don't Take

Happy Saturday, everyone!  We've officially made it through week one of the A-Z Blogging Challenge and today is all about the letter D and I'm bringing you the following:

D is for "Dreaming of You" and "Don't Take the Girl"

"Dreaming of You" - Selena

Though released posthumously, this is the song that made me fall in love with Selena and her Tejano music.  I remember waiting to hear this song on the radio and then singing it no matter the time of day.  It's such a beautiful song; maybe not lyrically beautiful, but Selena sings it beautifully.  Then the J-Lo movie came out...I still cry every time I watch that movie. 

*Fun Fact:  Selena was the first Tejano singer to win a Grammy.

"Don't Take the Girl" - Tim McGraw

Ah, Tim McGraw...you were my country crush as a kid.  Still are, actually.  "Don't Take the Girl" was the first McGraw song I heard and I knew that I had to have that album, Not a Moment too Soon!  I listened to it constantly (the whole thing is good) and would watch CMT hoping that one of his videos would play (generally during the top ten countdown or something).  I think it's probably my favorite McGraw disc and "Don't Take the Girl" still gets me a little teary-eyed.

*Fun FactNot a Moment too Soon was the best-selling country album in 1994 and "Don't Take the Girl" was McGraw's first #1 hit.

What are some of your favorite D songs?

Blog on, fellow A-Zers!


  1. This is a great song, beautifully done video too!

  2. I remember when Don't Take the Girl came out. I loved it...and then I went through a phase of not wanting to ever hear it again once the radio stations started playing it every 15 minutes. I hate it when they wreck a perfectly good (or even great) song! Elle @ Erratic Project Junkie

    1. Me, too! Hence the reason I don't listen to the radio often...well, at least popular radio stations.
