Favorite Love Songs by Pat Boone

Pat Boone sings some of my favorite love songs, and I would like to share some of them with you.

1. Remember you’re mine

I had this girl friend once, who told me: “What’s mine is mine, and what’s yours is mine.”

2. I’m walking the floor over you

An oldie, but a goodie.

3. Let me call you sweetheart

I played in a band long ago that did this number. On some of these songs his wife Shirley sings with him. On some of the pictures though, there is not his wife, but Shirley Jones.

4. Side by side

When I was little I saw some folks sing this on TV in Salisbury, Rhodesia.

5. My Happiness

This is still one of my favorite love songs. I think this was the first recording Elvis did – for his mother.

6. Vaya con Dios

Very beautiful.

7. Melody of love

This is a new one for me, but very nice.

8. My blue heaven

I heard this as an instrumental when I was a teenager.

9. Tennessee Waltz

An old standard.

10. Blueberry Hill

Every singer gives their own different feeling to a song.

11. Pearly Shells

One of my favorite love songs by Pat Boone. I still long to be by the sea.

12. Why Baby why

I think this was maybe one of his big hits.

13. Bernardine

I think this was the very first song I heard Pat Boone sing. I was about 11 years old at a friend’s house, and I saw the record cover with his face on it. It really impressed me, and I longed to be able to make a record myself one day, with my face on it.

14. Rock around the clock

This was a big hit for Bill Haley when I was young, and I longed to grow up and party all night!

15. Love letters in the sand – my favorite love song by Pat Boone

One of the greatest recordings ever. He told us that he had it on the “B” side of his record, because there has to be a song on the other side. He never expected it to be a hit.

16. Ain’t that a shame

His copy of Fats Domino.

17. Moon River

Such a lot of world to see. I’ve only been in 15 countries.

18. Remember me, I’m the one who loves you

I was listening to Stuart Hamblin sing this yesterday.

19. Begin the Beguine

I heard my mother sing this when I was little, and I never knew what she was talking about. Apparently “Beguine” is a dance.

20. Harbor lights

My mother went to England during the war, in case some other harbour lights took her husband away from her. So I got born in England. Then after the war, they went back to Rhodesia.

21. Running Bear

I loved this song when I was a teenager. We had the record by another singer.

22. Everybody’s somebody’s fool

We have the Connie Francis recording.

23. Jambalaya

Maybe Pat Boone was influenced by Hank Williams there in Nashville!

24. Unchained Melody

Lonely rivers flow to the sea. I never knew rivers got lonely, but it is done very nicely.

25. Rosemarie

It seems like a number of American singers had hits in countries like Germany or Japan. Maybe Pat Boone had the same experience.

26. Sentimental me

Nice romantic video.

27. Drifting and Dreaming

Beautiful pictures and singing.

28. You can’t be true Dear

A sad song, but they sing it very nicely.

29. Now is the hour

Beautiful.

30. Hawaiian Wedding Song

Nice wedding.

31. Mona Lisa

Well done.

32. I left my heart in San Francisco

I have left my heart in many places, and that is one of them!

33. Wayward Wind

My wayward ways are the fault of the train station. That’s a good excuse! I used to sing this as one of my favorite love songs when I was a teenager.

Pat Boone Gospel Songs

The other day I was asked to sing at the church party next month, and I thought I should sing the Pat Boone gospel song called: “A wonderful time up there.” I wasn’t sure of all the right words, so I looked it up on the youtube. So this led me to a bunch of material from Pat Boone that I would like to share with you.

1. A wonderful time up there – my favorite Pat Boone Gospel Song

This was a big hit when I was 12 years old. I was so proud of Pat Boone for putting a gospel song on the hit parade. To me it was a much better song than “Flying purple people eater.”

2. Radio Station S.A.V.E.D.

I have heard this song before somewhere, but it has been running through my mind last night. Gospel radio is such a wonderful tool for the salvation message. As I watch this video, I remember a big mistake I made. I had a phone calll once from a man at Trans World Radio in Swaziland wanting one of my records to play on the air. At the time, I was low on money, and told him how much it would cost. So I never heard from him again. I was such a fool – I could have had my record played on the radio.

3. Beyond the sunset

This is one of my all time favourites. Whenever I see a sunset, I think of this beautiful song. It was written by a blind lady.

4. For those tears I died

I had this record back in the 70’s when I was in South Africa. In fact I had a whole lot of his records, but I can’t find them on the net. I loved the records where he was backed by the First Nashville Jesus Band.

5. Heart full of happiness

I had never heard this one before, but I hope you like it.

6. I wish we’d all been ready

I heard this one before by Larry Norman. The message is still for today.

7. Just a closer walk with Thee

It seems like everyone sings this one, but it is still a message we all need to hear. We can get so wrapped up in the cares of this life that we forget to walk daily with the Lord!

8. Peace in the valley

All the famous singers seem to sing the wrong words on this one. It was written by Thomas Dorsey in the 30’s when war was looming in Europe. He was on a train in the USA  looking out the window at the different animals grazing peacefully in the field, and he wondered how come humans can’t live together in peace. This song was sung before by Red Foley, his father-in-law.

9. Good News

Pat Boone says he wrote it. I never knew he wrote songs!

10. It is no secret

Here is another one that everybody sings.

11. Whispering Hope

Back in the 80’s I lost hope, and that was a new experience for me. I had never realized how important hope was.

12. This Land is mine (Masada)

Very interesting.

13. There’s a gold mine in the sky

Streets of gold! But mules don’t need gold!

14. Sweet hour of prayer

Back in the 70’s I went to the Full Gospel Church in Germiston under Pastor Green, and on Wednesday night they used to kneel down and pray for an hour. At first I ran out of things to pray for, then I devised a system of going through the alphabet remembering people, and that helped me through.

15. In the Garden

The guy who wrote this song had a vision of Mary Magdalene at the garden tomb.

Favorite Love Songs by Dean Martin

Here is Dean Martin singing some of my favorite love songs.

1. Welcome to my world

He is so much fun. This is from one of the Dean Martin shows. I have seen snatches from various shows on the TV. This was one of my favorite love songs sung by Gentleman Jim Reeves.

2. Send me the pillow that you dream on (live)

He is such a good entertainer. This is one of my all time favorite love songs.

3. Somewhere there’s a someone

This gives hope to people that are lonely. He makes me smile so much. He seems like such a happy person.

4. Since I met you Baby

“My whole life has changed.” Isn’t that the truth!

5. Hey Good Lookin’ – with Country Singers

Did there used to be a two dollar bill in the USA?

6. Send me the pillow that you dream on – One of my favorite love songs by Dean Martin

This is the record version, which is better quality than the live recording.

7. Houston

I have been down and out many times, so I really feel with this one.

8. Mr. Wonderful (live) – Mr. Funny

He is so entertaining, singing for Ronald Reagan.

9. Things – with Nancy Sinatra

When I used to sing this one, I felt so sad and blue, but he makes it feel exciting!

10. Second hand Rose

This is such a lovely song. Dean Martin puts so much feeling into this number.

11. You`ve still got a place in my heart

If only all people felt this way, the world would be a better place.

12. The tips of my fingers

This is a really touching lost love song, that I can relate to. The one that got away!

13. My Woman, my Woman, my Wife

Such a touching tribute to a wife. I first heard this one by Marty Robbins.

14. For the good times

Here Dean Martin looks so sad, and I know he went through a lot of sadness in his life. I hope he made it through the pearly gates. Later on, I will add on some more of my favorite love songs.

15. Tie a yellow ribbon

This is a good song.

One of his biggest hits.

28. With Tennessee Ernie Ford

29. With Lorne Greene

30. The door is still open to my heart

About a hundred times or more, I have put links to songs on the YouTube, only to find they have later been taken off. Maybe people are uploading pirate copies, or maybe it’s the Pirates of the Caribbean that are taking them. If you see Johnny Depp, please ask him if he has seen the songs!

32. Cheek to cheek – with Juliet Prowse

I laughed a lot on this one.

Johnny Cash Gospel Songs

I love Johnny Cash’s gospel songs. Some of them I have sung many times over the years at various venues.

1. I talk to Jesus every day

I just love this one, and have sung it hundreds of times.

2. It was Jesus

Here is singing at a concert. I read his book where he said he wanted to be a gospel singer, but the man at the record business wanted him to just sing the rockabilly stuff.

3. I saw a man

When I was learning to sing this one, it felt like such a holy feeling. Like I was on holy ground when I sang it.

4. Wings in the morning

I saw this album on sale many years ago, so bought a whole bunch and sent them to all the family. A few years ago when we were in Scotland, my one sister asked me to sing this song, but I had forgotten the words. So it is so nice to find it on the youtube.

5. I saw the light

Jesus said He is the light of the world.

6. Daddy sang bass

I sang this one at my one sister’s wedding reception. We did a lot of singing together as children. My family had church in the house five times a week!

7. Old time religion

We sang this one many times as a family.

8. How great Thou art

Everyone sings this one, but it is still one of the greatest worship hymns.

9. Here was a man

I bought this record back in about 1972, and many times I could feel the Holy Spirit moving when I sang it at various church meetings.

10. Over the next hill we’ll be home

Many times on the road, I would sing this song as we were nearing our destination.

11. The Preacher said: Jesus said

So good to see Johnny Cash working with Dr. Billy Graham.

12. The old account was settled long ago

I sang this one when I was a teenager. It brings back lots of memories. Dear friend, please make your peace with God, because we never know when we are going to die. I have been close to death many times.

13. Life’s Railway to Heaven

Another favourite gospel song I sang in my childhood, except, I used to sing “railroad.”

14. The Fourth Man

When my kids were little, we often sat around the fire at night in the garden, and I would play my guitar, and sing this one.

15. Jesus was a carpenter

When I sang this one, I used to change the names of the places to suit the country I was in.

16. Are all the children in – one of my Favorite Johnny Cash Gospel Songs

This is such a powerful song. There have been times when I have sung this, and given the invitation for salvation, and about 50 young people resonded, giving their hearts to Jesus.

17. I call Him

I sang this one night at a church service, and the evangelist mentioned it in his sermon. The next night I was singing on the TV, when the evangelist came on right in the middle of the show, and I had to come on right after him singing: “Honeycomb won’t you be my baby.” I felt so terrible. That was the beginning of me switching to gospel songs.

18. I won’t have to cross Jordan alone (by the Jordan River)

This is so beautiful. Johnny Cash by the Jordan River singing one verse of this good old gospel song.

19. I won’t have to cross Jordan alone (whole song)

This is the record version. The other week I heard Willian Branham sing this on the internet, and it felt so holy. I had forgotten that Johnny did this number too, so I am so glad I found it.

20. An old chunk of coal

I remember this song from my old records of Johnny Cash, and so glad to find it. I’m gonna be a diamond someday!

21. That’s enough

I have just found this lovely song that I have wanted to find for years. The words are such the blessing to me. He talks about how people say bad things about him, and says: “I won’t miss a friend that I never had.”
