Songs that speak to me
THIS is gonna be a confused (all kinds a’ crazy!) list .. No shit, I can hear my regular readers say. So anyway I’m sitting here working and one of my all time fave songs came on.. It’s Bryan Adams crooning the following words:
“I swear to you – I will always be there foryou .. there’s nothing I won’t do.. I promise you .. All my life I will live for you .. we will make it thru .. forever .. we will be, together .. a family .. you and me .. when I hold you, nothing can compare .. with all of my heart, you know I will always be right there..I believe in us .. nothing else could ever mean so much .. you’re the one I trust .. ”
I am in a particularly cynical mood so I snort and – whilst uttering something unrepeatable – I change the station.
Lo, an all time fave song of mine came on! Love when that happens. This has been a song I’ve loved since I was a teen. I must admit, the idea that we can love more than one person at a time (in a relationship sense, not as one might friends or family) is something I am intrigued by. How one person can satisfy all the needs of another etc .. ? That statement should open me up for some good lectures, I am sure but it is something I think about for all I’ve never acted on it..
A little later, same station (it’s Friday night and they figure no one is listening so they’re playing all sorts of dross for us old ladies home alone) and another song that I simply adored as a 20-something woman came on. This one made me stop and think “Hmm what am I doing” when I was in a very messed up relationship.
Lines like: “I’ve been to paradise but I’ve never been to me.. ” .. Then she talks about taking the sweet life and it being bitter in the end .. I always felt she’s talking about the fact she chose to be a wanderer thru life and not get married and have babies which I don’t subscribe to but hey this isn’t meant to be logical, this is a post about songs that I like.
I have to confess, I love sappy (and strapping heh) country boys .. so Keith singing “Making Memories of Us” really gets to me: “I’ll earn your trust making memories of us..I wanna honour your Mother and learn from your Pa..” I’m gonna love you .. like nobody loves you .. *dreamy sigh*
In no particular order here are other songs I love to listen to when I’m in a music mood:
Wonderful Tonight – Actually he sounds like a right whinger when he sings this song
Careless Whisper – Oh boy did I fancy George when I was younger! Wham ba.. er, ne’mind.
First Time Ever I Saw Your Face – Could be her voice that just makes this song so good
I Don’t Want To Miss A Thing – Love love love this song (and the movie)
You’re Still The One – Who doesn’t wanna hear this sentiment!
All My Life – I had this sung to me by a boy once. That was sooo hot. Shame he was an asshole.
You Don’t Bring Me Flowers, Crying time again, Right here waiting for you are 3 others I do particularly enjoy ..
Oh the irony at that last few, I know 😉
