Love these choices! My husband and his mom danced to “I Am Your Child” by Barry Manilow. Kind of a random choice but it was really sweet!
Thank you! We have so many that we’ve just played once that are not on this list. We haven’t had a request for “I Am Your Child” yet but it’s a really sweet one!
