Marc Anthony's Todoa Su Tiempo

Marc Anthony’s Todo a Su Tiempo

Editorial Intern Cesar Rojas’ Picks:

Since so man of those already listed are among my favorites, I’ll just add these:
Faithfully – by Journey.  Steve Perry is the man.
And because Valentines Day is about love, even love lost, “Hasta Ayer,” by Marc Anthony certainly makes my list.  For those of you who have ever found yourself alone just before Valentine’s. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zBeijLMfId8&feature=related
Unchained melody by the Righteous Brothers from the now famous “Ghost” scene, and Lady in Red – classic slow dance by Chris De Burgh tie for number three.

“Hasta Ayer” (Until Yesterday) — Marc Anthony: Because Valentine’s Day is about love, even love lost, this certainly makes my list.

Open Arms” — Journey: Steve Perry is the man.

Unchained Melody” — The Righteous Brothers: best known for the famous scene in the movie Ghost; and “Lady in Red,” by Chris De Burgh, tie for No. 3 for the slow-dance factor.


Picks of Faithe Colas, community relations director for the Salvation Army of Greater Milwaukee:

“You’re All I Need To Get By” — Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell: Why? I love this song because I think it speaks to being so secure in every way. It represents a time in my life when I met the man of my dreams; now, I feel complete.

“My Romance” — Kevin Mahogany: Why? Every song — and I mean every song — on  this CD is romantic. Plus, it was one of the first gifts I received from the love of my life and best friend.

“Ain’t No Mountain High Enough” — Marvin Gay and Tammi Terrell: Why? I love this song because it speaks to the friendship I have in my relationship. (Does this song speak to you? Take a listen.)
