ABC Wednesday - Round 10 - I is for ...

Two incredibly special songs this week
and one with an interesting story.

It Is You  I Have Loved - Dana Glover

From the movie Shrek, is written by Harry Gregson-Williams, John Powell and Gavin Greenaway and sung by Dana Glover.

I love this song. It's such a sweet song and it reminds me of someone very special in my heart. Maybe that's why this song always stirs my soul.

It's Only Love - The Beatles

Written mostly by John Lennon, It's Only Love was released in 1965 on their Help album in the UK and Rubber Soul album in the US.

This is also one of their filler songs, but it's one of my favourite Beatles songs. It takes me back to the school days when love was so sweet and innocent. Another song that reminds me of that special someone.

A very cute song.

It's not unusual - Tom Jones

Written by Les Reed and Gordon Mills, it was first recorded by Tom Jones and released in 1965.

Not one of my favourite Tom Jones numbers. But it has an interesting story ...

The regular keyboard player was unavailable for the recording session so an unknown teenage keyboard player was recruited for the session. The young keyboard player who called himself Reg was thanked and paid, and he went on his way. About a year later "Reg" changed his name to Elton John.

Wishing you all an incredibly interesting, invigorating and intriguing week

Warm Regards


  1. Ah, you know your Beatleology! But it started one of the sides on the US Rubber Soul LP, so it never felt like filler to the American audience.
    My favorite Tom Jones song.
