This song was very popular back in 1988 that it reached the top of the Billboard hot country singles & tracks and won an American Music Award for Favorite Country Single.

I first heard it being sung by Carrie Underwood. Apparently she made her cover version in her latest album, Carnival Ride. I fell in love instantly in the moment I first heard the chorus. Although I am not much of a fan of country music, but I loooove this song. In fact, it is those very classic countri-y notes and melody that keep me listening to it over and over again. BTW, we can hear Vince Gill backing up Carrie’s vocal beautifully in chorus section.

Title: She’s Out of My Life
Written by: Tom Bahler
Year: 1980
Vocal: Michael Jackson

She’s out of my life
She’s out of my life
And I don’t know whether to laugh or cry
I don’t know whether to live or die
And it cuts like a knife
She’s out of my life
It’s out of my hands
It’s out of my hands
To think for two years she was here
And I took her for granted I was so cavalier
Now the way that It stands
She’s out of my hands


So I’ve learned that love’s not possession
And I’ve learned that love won’t wait
Now I’ve learned that love needs expression
But I learned too late
And she’s out of my life
She’s out of my life
Damned indecision and cursed pride
Kept my love for her locked deep inside
And it cuts life a knife
She’s out of my life 



This song is meant for you, Darling, with hope that you can relate to it.

I’ve been loving you
Too long, to stop now
You were tied
And you want to be free
My love is grown stronger
As you become a habit to meOoo, been loving you, too long
I don’t wanna stop, now
Oh, no
With you, my life
Has been so wonderful
I can’t stop, now

Actually the title doesn’t quite represent what this post is gonna be, as this list is actually based on my preference . So maybe the most exact title should be “My 10 Most Favorite Songs.” It’s due to the tendency of people reading the blog by first impression on the title, so I figure out the title that will attract you more.

Well, this list is not gonna be sorted down on the level of my preference, since to measure our “favoriteness” toward one song than another is very hard to do. OK, here we go.
