Highway 89: Love Is a Many-Splendored Thing


SUNSHINE - Ryan Innes (listen)

“I love the way you look right now, it makes me happy for those clouds”

SEA BREEZE  - Tyrone Wells (listen)

“Soft as a whisper she’s calling me to her. These eyes have seen the most beautiful dream.”

YOU RAISE ME UP  - George Dyer (listen)

“I am strong when I am on your shoulders. You raise me up to more than I can be.”

WRAPPED UP IN YOU  - The Str!ke (listen)

“I’ve faced the fire and rain, I’ve broken every chain, and now I’m here to stay.”



LONG WAY HOME - Ryan Innes (listen)

“As the years went on, you knew they were right all along. Sometimes the heart takes the long way home.”

TO SAVE HER –Taylor Berrett (listen)

“I don’t want to lose her, but she’s already gone. Tell me, is this what love is, being moved and moving on?”


“By the way, how is my heart? I haven’t seen it since you left.”

I’M LEAVING YOU - The Str!ke (listen)

“There’s so much more in this life than your empty promises. It feels like we’re falling, hope that we can get out alive.”

What is love?

If your first answer is, “Baby don’t hurt me,” don’t worry, you’re not alone!

Love is music. From first dances at weddings to specially crafted mix-tapes and CDs and playlists for a special someone, to that one song you can’t listen to without being flooded by memories. Music is a huge part of falling in, being in, and falling out of love, and more songs in the past 100 years have been written about love than any other topic. Even before then, classical giants like Beethoven and Mozart found muses in love, and compositions like “Fur Elise” and “The Notebook for Anna Magdalena” are still cherished today.

On Highway 89, we’ve had our share of love songs, both happy and sad. We’ve compiled some of favorites from past episodes for whatever your relationship status is right now, whether love is lifting you up or love has let you down. We hope that these selections will bring you hope in the future, comfort in understanding, or simply remind you of the way things used to be.

All our love,

The HIGHWAY 89 Team
