We Have A Winner!!

Oh what a night, late April back in 2008......LOL!! Okay, so I changed the wording a LITTLE to suit my purposes, but you get my drift!! Thanks to all of you for participating in my blog candy contest!! I always love when you stop by to see me, and running a contest like this lets me get to know some of you a little better!! I will say though, over the last 4 days, I have had over 1000 visitors to my blog, and only got 85entries, so to all your lurkers out there(you know I love ya), sign up next time, this could be you!!!
The most popular favorite song was"I Can Only Imagine" by Mercy Me. I have to tell you that I LOVE music and that is why this was the question I asked. I associate music with all of my most memorable moments in my life. This song holds a special place in my heart, not only for it's beauty and amazing message, but it was one of the songs played at my step/second dad's, Mike, funeral. He was(and still is) a great man and not a day goes by that I don't miss him. He left too early and left a hole in our hearts that only God, time, and memories can fill. After the funeral, I immediately downloaded this song and listened to it repeatedly. I can remeber at the funeral looking around while it played and everyone was signing along, through tears of course, but I just remember feeling very connected with all my family, step family, and friends. To me picking a favorite song is like trying to pick a favorite niece or stamp, impossible!!
The least favorite song ranged from Achy Breaky Heart(I totally agree)to rap!! John Anderson's "Swingin" was mentioned a few times, but was also listed as someone's favorite so that just goes to show you why there are so many types of music and artists out there. There were a few random others, but sadly no one said the same least favorite song as me. It was also one of my second dad's least favorite songs!! Mom, I bet you know.......that's right Tubthumper by Chumbawumba. That song justs grates on my nerves!!!
Okay, enough carrying on, that's not why you are here are you!! picked

Here are your random numbers:32
