One for the mush! – My favourite love songs…


So, I thought of sharing some of my favourite love songs. Sometimes, we need the mush!

(1) It must have been love ~ Roxette

This is surely one of the most popular love songs of all time. It features in the soundtrack of Pretty Woman. Totally, love the song and the movie!

(2) Hello ~  Lionel Richie

Again, a very famous love song.

 

(3) Take my breath away ~ Berlin

This is from the soundtrack of Top Gun. Love the song and the movie. I think, this is one couple with electric onscreen chemistry.

 

(4) Close to you ~ Carpenters

They don’t make songs like this anymore. Such a beautiful track and no one could have sung it better than Karen Carpenter.

 

(5) Whilte Flag ~ Dido

Who doesn’t like Dido’s voice? Dido forever! Yes!

 

(6) Brighter than Sunshine ~ Aqualung

This is a song by Aqualung  and it features in the soundtrack of A lot like love. This comes with the very typical Aqualung-ish feel.

 

(7)  So into you ~ Atlantic Rhythm Section

I feel that this is a way underrated band and this song is definitely a diamond! I came across this song through the soundtrack of The Fighter. You might also want to check out the entire soundtrack of that movie. It’s a brilliant!

 

(8)  Time after time – Cyndi Lauper 

This is a very old number and I first heard it when I was watching Romy and Michele’s High School Reunion. In that reference, I would like to share the clipping from that movie. You can check out the original video on your own. 🙂

(9) Something stupid ~ Frank Sinatra

Does this song need any introduction?

(10) La vie en rose ~ Louis Armstrong

Again, no introduction needed.

 

(11) Speak softly love ~ Andy Williams

Absolutely, love this one. Every Godfather fan will know why.

 

(12) Where do I begin ~  Love story (1970) theme song

This is the classic theme song by Francis Lai. The first video is the instrumental version and the second one is sung by Andy Williams (clipping from the movie).

So, these my top favourites and maybe, more will be added to the list.

Which one is your favourite? Please, feel free to share as good music must be shared. 🙂

Cheers!

One for the self guessing “Who am I?” moments…


Have you heard “The Samples”? Great music. I really liked this track. Beautifully penned lyrics and composed. Nice acoustic sound!

Give it a listen.

Song: “Who am I” ~ The Samples.

One for re-making the classics! (Ain’t no sunshine)


I was listening to Bill Withers’ original version of “Ain’t no sunshine” and came across many other nicely done renditions. It is indeed a huge task to match the beauty of the original composition but I really liked a few versions so thought I should share them here.

First one is by Joe Cocker. Listen & enjoy!

 Joe Cocker ~ Ain’t no shunshine

 

Another great version is the one done by Shaun Smith during “Britain’s got talent” auditions. What a voice!

Shaun Smith ~ Ain’t no shunshine

 

And yet another neat version.

Selah Sue & Ronny Mosuse ~ Ain’t no sunshine

 

Which one did you like best?

One for the ‘lost & found’ episodes….


 

So I’ve been collecting songs and it’s been a never ending process….

Heard this song in the popular series – Grey’s Anatomy. Yes, I know I’ve been on a roll with music from Grey’s. Can’t help it. Good stuff people!

Song : Lost and Found ~ Katie Herzig.

Enjoy!

One for “Once” ….


 

A few songs from one of the best soundtracks ever made. The movie’s called “Once” starring two real life musicians – Glen Hansard & Marketa Irglova. Wonderful music and movie, all in one.

Songs (in order):

  • If you want me
  • When your mind’s made up
  • Falling slowly

I simply love the way they’ve penned down the songs and what beautiful compositions! The track “Falling Slowly” won the Oscars for the best original composition and rightly so.

Falling Slowly lyrics:

“I don’t know you
But I want you
All the more for that
Words fall through me
And always fool me
And I can’t react
And games that never amount
To more than they’re meant
Will play themselves out

Take this sinking boat and point it home
We’ve still got time
Raise your hopeful voice you have a choice
You’ll make it now

Falling slowly, eyes that know me
And I can’t go back
Moods that take me and erase me
And I’m painted black
You have suffered enough
And warred with yourself
It’s time that you won

Take this sinking boat and point it home
We’ve still got time
Raise your hopeful voice you have a choice

You’ve made it now
Falling slowly sing your melody
I’ll sing it loud”
