Martina McBride is 47 today, just a tot to me. I sometimes recall when she was born near Sharon, KS., I was working in Kansas City. It kinda creeps me out but I can't help myself. She is just the IT girl! For me, anyway.  On this day, I'd like to share five of my favorite Martina tunes she has recorded on video, or someone recorded them - I am sure she didn't do them all... I digress.

X 5 - HAPPY GIRL

As we used to say is Sweden, this is yust a yolly song.

# 2 - MY BABY LOVES ME

I dream she is referring to me, alas, as we used to say in Sweden, yust a dream.

Ah, Nuff said.

# 1 - I’LL BE ALL SMILES TONIGHT

One of my absolute favorites. I originally heard it by Anita Carter. Martina's version is wonderful. It is especially endearing to those with Irish heritage.
